"Voice mail hell, credit card rate bait-and-switches, television commercials playing at the urinal. In this book Jamie Court shows how such everyday 'corporateering' springs from the same assumptions and strategies that led to the fire sales on stock at Enron, Global Crossing, WorldCom, and so on. This book teaches you how to see the invisible hand of the corporation, and the finger is pointing at you."

     —Michael Moore, from the foreword

"A thought-provoking look at the condition of American society."

     —The Associated Press

"...keeping the muckraking tradition alive..."

     —Publishers Weekly

Enron. Tyco. Arthur Andersen. These companies have turned "corporate" into a four-letter word as headline after headline reveals shocking stories of executives stealing money from investors.

But money isn't all that corporations steal. In Corporateering, Jamie Court shows how corporations routinely and quietly rob us of our personal freedoms, including privacy, security, the right to legal recourse, and more. In fact, "corporateering"-the act of prioritizing commercial gain over individual, social, or cultural gain-is everywhere in our lives.

Court offers empowering strategies for counter-corporateering so we can reclaim our private lives, our right to health and safety, and other personal liberties.
