The Corporate Coup d'étatFred Peabody
Democracy and unrestrained economic growth. These two cornerstones have been the foundations of Western society for decades and are usually regarded as perfectly complementary values. Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges argues that they are actually each other's enemies. Held in a stranglehold, democracy is being suffocated by a 'corporate coup d'état; in which companies and billionaires increasingly take control of the political process. A shocking pamphlet about the loss of Western democracy.
