150 years ago, the business corporation was a relatively insignificant institution. Today, it is all-pervasive. Like the Church, the Monarchy and the Communist Party in other times and places, the corporation is today's dominant institution. This documentary examines the nature, evolution, impacts, and possible futures of the modern business corporation. Initially given a narrow legal mandate, what has allowed today's corporation to achieve such extraordinary power and influence over our lives? We begin our inquiry as scandals threaten to trigger a wide debate about the lack of public control over big corporations.

aus The Corporation. Hab den eigentlich schon vor ner ganzen Weile gesehen, ist aber trotzdem empfehlenswert. Wer nach dem Film depressiv wird und nicht weiter weiss lese bitte Peter Barnes Capitalism 3.0. ;)
