Focus on the Corporation scrutinizes the multinational corporation -- the
most powerful institution of our time. Once a week, it reports and
comments critically on corporate actions, plans, abuses and trends.
Written with a sharp edge and occasional irreverence, Focus on the
Corporation covers:

* Globalization and corporate power;

* The double standards which excuse corporations for behavior (e.g.,
causing injury, accepting welfare) widely considered criminal or shameful
when done by individuals;

* Trends in corporate economic blackmail, political influence and
workplace organization;

* Industry-wide efforts to escape regulation, silence critics, employ new
technologies or consolidate business among a few companies;

* Specific, extreme examples of corporate abuses: destruction of
communities, trampling of democracy, poisoning of air and water; and

* The corporatization of our culture.
