“Good” bad corporations

November 05th, 2020

A follow-up to The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, is Bakan’s The New Corporation: How “Good” Corporations are Bad for Democracy (Allen Lane $19.95) about the call for a “new kind of capitalism” by business leaders. In the midst of soaring income inequality, stagnating wages and an escalating climate crisis, they realized the need to make social and environmental values. The problem is that corporations are still primarily concerned with their bottom lines. In reality, Bakan argues that increasing corporate freedom is encroaching on individual liberty and democracy. While he exposes the inhumanity and destructive force of the current order, and other problems, Bakan also describes a hopeful path forward. 978-0-7352-3884-8
