America Beyond Capitalism

Written by James Gustave Speth

In America beyond Capitalism, Gar Alperovits writes that "the large corporations regularly:

1. Influences legislation and agenda setting through lobbying.

2. Influences regulatory behavior through direct and indirect pressure.

3. Influences elections via large-scale campaign contributions.

4 Influences public attitudes throug massive media campaigns.

5. Influences local government choices through all of the above--and adds the implicit or explicit threat of withdrawing its plants, equipment, and jobs from specific locations.

Gar Alperovitz, cited by James Gustave Speth, The Bridge at the Edge of the World, p.219.
