Neither were they ever promoted or signed into law by any president - if anything, the opposite, with presidents from Grover Cleveland in to Author: Truthout.

“The new, updated edition of Corporations Are Not People is needed now more than ever. Americans are deeply troubled by the growing influence of corporations and big money in our political discourse and government.

Read this book, and join the work to save our democracy.”Cited by: 6. Major corporations and governments have at their disposal technological means to completely monitor and control everything in our lives far beyond what most people know about and this book details it. It will scare you and even might terrify you, but we must all people aware of what is going by: The first group sees the government as flawed, but an important force for the good of the people.

It argues that it. Corporate personhood is the legal notion that a corporation, separately from its associated human beings (like owners, managers, or employees), has at least some of the legal rights and responsibilities enjoyed by natural persons.

In the United States and most countries, corporations, as legal persons, have a right to enter into contracts with other parties and to sue or be sued in court in. Compact and concise, The People’s Republic of Walmart offers an accessible introduction into economic planning. The book’s thesis is that, with the help of recent technological advances, effective planning is not only possible but already commonplace within large multinational corporations such as Walmart and Amazon; planning obviously can work, the co-authors convincingly argue, and what /5.
