Wealth by Stealth: Corporate Crime, Corporate Law, and the Perversion of Democracy
How is it that corporations are able to behave irresponsibly, criminally, and undemocratically?
Wealth by Stealth is a scathing introduction to the operations of the modern corporation, written by a corporate lawyer. Many writers point to the growth of undemocratic corporate power. Glasbeek takes these observations further and outlines clearly how corporations become so powerful. He also shows how they are able to act without regard to the behaviour and laws governing citizens and other groups.
Glasbeek is known by generations of students for his brilliant, funny lectures at Osgoode Hall Law School. With Wealth by Stealth his informative critique of corporate behaviour becomes available and accessible to all.
How is it "The corporation makes them do it"?
