The Corporation - DVD

I was fortunate to watch this wonderful DVD on the emergence of " The corporation" . The Corporation ( or simplisticly speaking firms / companies) is the most ubiquitous and dominant instituton of our times. This documentary explores the emergence of Corporations, their power and issues of Corporate social responsibility. The documentary features some of the biggest MNC's and denounces the "profit before anything" creed of capitalism.

If you are right wing liberal you might cringe at the tone but the fabian socialists and left wing conservatives have a lot to cheer ( Aren't they the upholders of CSR !) . There are also lively interviews with luminaries such as Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky , Naomi Klein .

To learn more , visit the official website . Whatever economics you believe in , don't miss this documentary. Its really good .
