9780312254612: Corporation Nation: How Corporations are Taking Over Our Lives -- and What We Can Do About It

Foreword by Ralph Nader. In Corporation Nation Derber addresses the unchecked power of today's corporations to shape the way we work, earn, buy, sell, and think―the very way we live. Huge, far-reaching mergers are now commonplace, downsizing is rampant, and our lines of communication, news and entertainment media, jobs, and savings are increasingly controlled by a handful of global―and unaccountable―conglomerates. We are, in effect, losing our financial and emotional security, depending more than ever on the whim of these corporations. But it doesn't have to be this way, as this book makes clear. Just as the original Populist movement of the nineteenth century helped dethrone the robber barons, Derber contends that a new, positive populism can help the U.S. workforce regain its self-control.

Drawing on core sociological concepts and demonstrating the power of the sociological imagination, he calls for revisions in our corporate system, changes designed to keep corporations healthy while also making them answerable to the people. From rewriting corporate charters to altering consumer habits, Derber offers new aims for businesses and empowering strategies by which we all can make a difference.

From the Publisher:

In Corporate Nation, Charles Derber goes beyond documenting the megacorporate power that rules America-which was not what America was supposed to become-and presents a unified agenda for a resurgent democracy that should appeal to progressives of many different causes and some conservatives who not corporatists as well.-RALPH NADER
"A rising tide should lift all boats. But too often in our modern society, as Charles Derber skillfully points out, millions of Americans are left out or left behind. Professor Derber's analysis and recommendations should be read and heeded by all who believe that free enterprise can be fair enterprise too."-SENATOR EDWARD M. KENNEDY
"It would be difficult to overstate the importance of the issues addressed in this thoughtful and well-informed study of modern corporations. A substantial and very timely contribution." -NOAM CHOMSKY
"A valuable contribution, with concrete proposals for ordinary citizens to effect real change, strengthen our democracy, and reclaim our populist heritage."-SENATOR PAUL WELLSTONE
"An invaluable, on-target contribution to redefining the political debate. Corporation Nation provides a depth of data and analysis useful in building a case for change. A guiding beacon for those committed to restoring democracy and economic justice."-DAVID KORTEN, author of When Corporations Rule the World
