The Corporation by Mark Achbar( Visual )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Corporation delves into the mindset and character of corporate America. This documentary comes to us from Mark Achbar (Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media), Jennifer Abbott (A Cow at My Table), and Joel Bakan, whose book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power serves as the basis for the film. Through interviews with left-wing staples such as Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore; company CEOs from Pfizer, Goodyear, and Royal Dutch Shell; activists and whistleblowers; and highlighting specific cases of corporate deception, the three-hour mini-series paints a somewhat unflattering picture of multinationals. In the first program, The Pathology of Commerce, filmmakers examine the pathological self-interest of the modern corporation. Planet Inc. looks at the scope of commerce and the sophisticated, even covert, techniques marketers use to get their brands into our homes. The final program, Reckoning, examines how corporations cut deals with any style of government - from Nazi Germany to despotic states today - that allow or even encourage sweatshops, as long as sales go up
