Power Inc. - The Epic Rivalry between Big Business and Government – and the Reckoning that Lies Ahead – Book Review

This book provides a timely look at the current situation and trend in which thousands of companies have greater power than all but a few states. It covers the past and current jockeying for influence and control between government and corporate interests - the battles over the proper role of government and markets. Instead of the triumph of “American capitalism” we are seeing “competing capitalisms offering different visions for how our world should work, a global ideological struggle in which European and Asian models may have the advantage.”

The author offers insight into how to navigate into the future.
