Corporatarchy - Rule by the Corporations

Corporations, no longer bound by national laws, prowl the world looking for the best deals on labor and raw materials. Of the world's top 120 economies, nearly half are corporations, not countries. Thus the power of citizens in any nation to control corporations through whatever democratic processes are available to them is receding quickly.

"Fascism ought to more properly be called corporatism since it is the merger of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini

"Free Trade" Puts Democracy in Peril by Arnie Alpert
 Under the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO), provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas, virtually any law that hinders international commerce can be considered a "barrier to trade." This new expansive view of trade puts democracy at risk, along with the rights of workers, the protection of the environment, and the health of communities.
An International Criminal Court for Transnational Companies? by Francois Rigaux
 Transnational companies (TNCs) are economic agents of private law and are subject in principle to rule of law and to the jurisdiction of its courts. The transnational group does not, in itself, possess an identity which can be distinguished from each of the entities that make it up, so that it can only be obliged to answer for its acts in a fragmented way, so that it benefits from the opposing interests of the States in which it operates.
Corporate Freedom by Adam Cytrynbaum
 Why anti-corporate movements are the ones who truly infringe upon the rights of others.
Corporate Influence on the Media and Perception of History by Greg Wells
 This is a short essay, in the form of a speech. I used it as an outline of sorts for a lecture. Focusing on the biased slant in news reporting placed by corporate interests, and the apparent lack of historical analysis of the assassination of Senator Huey Long, this short essay is pretty basic stuff, but interesting.

 Executive Outcomes (EO) is one of more than eighteen firms, including international oil, gold and diamond mining ventures, a chartered accountancy practice, an airline, foreign security services, and offshore financial management services, managed from a modern, glass-fronted building at 535 King's Road, London, known as Plaza 107.

Gmail Bedfellows
 Conservative nut-house the Heritage Foundation, usually content with slavishly supporting Bush, congratulating themselves about invading other countries and fighting to outlaw abortion, has weighed in on Google's new Gmail service.
How Corporations Came to Rule the World by Richard Heinberg
 Corporations, no longer bound by national laws, prowl the world looking for the best deals on labor and raw materials. Of the world's top 120 economies, nearly half are corporations, not countries.

Narcissism in the Boardroom by Sam Vaknin
 The perpetrators of the recent spate of financial frauds in the USA acted with callous disregard for both their employees and shareholders - not to mention other stakeholders. Psychologists have often remote-diagnosed them as "malignant, pathological narcissists".
Paradigm Shift: Challenging Corporate Authority by Paul Cienfuegos
 If we no longer pleaded with corporate leaders to cause a little less harm, what would we do? If we no longer celebrated as victories every brief delay in the corporate devastation of our world, what would we celebrate?
Revolt Against the Empire by Jon Rappoport
 There is one overriding reason for going after these eight corporations. They are all forwarding genetic projects to engineer food seeds so that our food supply in the fields will accept much higher doses of herbicides without curling up and dying. This will drench both the soil and our bodies with corporate toxic chemicals and improve their profit statements.

 A rough plan for crippling the corpolitical network by eliminating a crucial resource - electronically recorded information.
The Carlyle Group by Alfred Mendes
 It is quite extraordinary, and not a little frightening, how little attention is paid to the unexpressed aims of Corporate America in its on-going act of achieving global economic and political domination. Whereas its expressed aims, such as promoting a "new" and "humanitarian" world freed of "terrorism", are constantly propounded in both print and speech, the causal problems underlying these recent crises (of which "terrorism" is the most prominent) are not being examined rationally.
The Iron Fist Behind the Invisible Hand by Kevin A. Carson
 The current structure of capital ownership and organization of production in our so-called "market" economy, reflects coercive state intervention prior to and extraneous to the market. From the outset of the industrial revolution, what is nostalgically called "laissez-faire" was in fact a system of continuing state intervention to subsidize accumulation, guarantee privilege, and maintain work discipline.
White House Threatens Union With Troops by Steve Stallone
 There is a secret White House Task Force that was set up to oversee and monitor the longshore negotiations - it consists of officials from the DOL, the DOD, the President’s Counsel of Economic Advisors and Homeland Security. They umm contacted the ILWU in mid-June - and they basically laid a number of threats on the union - they wanted us to settle the contract negotiations quickly
