Contents Notes
"The Corporate Planet brilliantly exposes the elaborate efforts of giant corporations to "greenwash" themselves, and it demonstrates how they are using free trade agreements and World Bank loans to build a world order where they are accountable only to themselves. From Tokyo, where Mitsubishi processes rain forest logs from around the world, to a polluting Chevron oil refinery in California, to India, China, and Brazil, where global chemical companies are setting up shop, Joshua Karliner takes us on a stunning world tour. Here is a fascinating account of corporate greed and the unexpected powers of local activists to combat it."--Jacket.
