Format: Paperback
This book should be valued reading to anyone who is concerned with the future of the working poor, the environment, or your own freedoms. Danaher puts together great writings from some of the most respected names in the subject. This book is simple enough for your 14 year old and interesting enough to cause any rational thinking and compassionate adult to stand up and do something about the oppression and destruction caused by big business.

If you think that corporations are inocuous organizations with the public's best interest at heart- think again! This book is a very good introduction to the perfidy of the global economy. Corporations Are Gonna Get Your Momma is a collection of short essays from the most articulate critics of the global economy and it will open your eyes to what many of our leaders are really up to.
Don't be fooled by the comical cover and title of the book. This collection of writings is a serious call to action.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I agree with the basic premise of the book, that corporations are exerting an obscene amount of control in world politics, I wouldn't reccomend reading this book. The author will cite a statistic, or a story, and will give no formal indication of where that quote comes from. The book is mostly just repetitive leftist polemics and rhetoric, and while I am pretty leftist myself, I try to avoid this kind of literature on either side of the fence.
Books like this should contain documentation, look for a bibliography, look for footnotes when you buy such a book.

Format: Paperback
Rather than repeat the kudos already submitted, I'd like to address the primary cause for runaway globalism. I'm old enough to remember when the American public had far more wealth and power, back in the late 40's through the early 70's, because we were a manufacturing society, a wealth-creating creditor to the nations, a nation that was self-sufficient and we had an elderly generation that could remember the Robber Barons. This book addresses the retaliation of an elite against America. An American people able to fight back against Vietnam and social engineering being rammed down our throats during the 60's. CEO's demanded that Washington do something to bust the unions that were robbing them of "opportunity costs". Earl Warren called for political economists to find a way to neuter the rebellious middle class. Nixon and Kissinger went to Red China to find out how the hell you keep over one billion people busy and servile.
They came back and began the systematic bleeding of America began; starting with Kissenger's go-ahead signal to OPEC. Ever since then, the powerful middle class has been raped and pounded into utter submission and servility. We have sacrificed millions of good jobs to the blamphemous, sophomoric lie of Comparative Advantage. That lie from Hell used to convert a self-contained American economy into a one-trick pony that only a tiny few can profit from. The rest of us have fallen into that hell prepared for the middle class: the massive service sector and all the menial, frivolous jobs you can work to make ends meet. Our elites partly replaced our lost earning power with plastic shackles: credit cards. The security of the American home has been second mortgaged to the limit, again to make up for lack of decent or dignified work.
