News & Opinion: Life Inc.

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 8:15 PM – Filed under: Current Events & Public Affairs

Life Inc., the recent book by writer, filmmaker, and scholar Douglas Rushkoff, examines how corporations took over America and how we can now, in a struggling economy, use that situation to revive natural growth, and take back control from the grip of corporations that contributed to creating the situation we're in. Overall, the book is an inspiring proposal to look at the downside of the current economy with optimism and enthusiasm to make positive change. Rushkoff also recently contributed a manifesto to our site ChangeThis. The manifesto offers a brief overview to the central argument of his book. And for an even more immediate snapshot, Life Inc.: The Movie can be viewed below:
