This is the first practical guide for every citizen on the problem of corporate personhood and the tools we have to overturn it. Jeff Clements explains why the Citizens United case is the final win in a campaign for corporate domination of the state that began in the 1970s under Richard Nixon. More than this, Clements shows how unfettered corporate rights will impact public health, energy policy, the environment, and the justice system. Where Thom Hartmann´s Unequal Protection provides a much-needed detailed legal history of corporate personhood, Corporations Are Not People answers the listener´s question: ´´What does Citizens United mean to me?´´ And, even more important, it provides a solution: a Constitutional amendment, included in the book, which would reverse Citizens United. The book´s ultimate goal is to give every citizen the tools and talking points to overturn corporate personhood state by state, community by community with petitions, house party kits, draft letters, shareholder resolutions, and much more. 1.

A fascinating, cinematic, multi-generational history of the Cuban mob in the US from ´´America´s top chronicler of organized crime´´ and New York Times best-selling author of Havana Nocturne. By the mid 1980s, the criminal underworld in the United States had become an ethnic polyglot; one of the most powerful illicit organizations was none other than the Cuban mob. Known on both sides of the law as ´´the Corporation´´, the Cuban mob´s power stemmed from a criminal culture embedded in south Florida´s exile community - those who had been chased from the island by Castro´s revolution and planned to overthrow the Marxist dictator and reclaim their nation. An epic story of gangsters, drugs, violence, sex, and murder rooted in the streets, The Corporation reveals how an entire generation of political exiles, refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hit men, and their wives and girlfriends became caught up in an American saga of desperation and empire building. T. J. English interweaves the voices of insiders speaking openly for the first time with a trove of investigative material he has gathered over many decades to tell the story of this successful criminal enterprise, setting it against the larger backdrop of revolution, exile, and ethnicity that makes it one of the great American gangster stories that has been overlooked - until now. Drawing on the detailed reporting and impressive volume of evidence that drive his best-selling works, English offers a riveting, in-depth look at this powerful and sordid crime organization and its hold in the US. 1.

In his stunning memoir, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins detailed his former role as an ´´hit man´´ operating within the international corporate skullduggery of a de facto American Empire. That riveting, behind-the-scenes exposé unfolded like a cinematic blockbuster told through the eyes of a man who once helped shape that empire. Now, in The Secret History of the American Empire, Perkins zeroes in on hot spots around the world and, drawing on interviews with other hit men, jackals, reporters, and activists, examines the current geopolitical crisis. Instability is the norm; it´s clear that the world we´ve created is dangerous and no longer sustainable. How did we get here? Who´s responsible? What good have we done and at what cost? And what can we do to change things for the next generations? Addressing these questions and more, Perkins reveals the secret history behind the events that have created the American Empire. From the U.S. military in Iraq to infrastructure development in Indonesia, from Peace Corps volunteers in Africa to jackals in Venezuela, Perkins exposes a conspiracy of corruption that has fueled instability and anti-Americanism around the globe. Alarming yet hopeful, this book provides a compassionate plan for reimagining our world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis.

THE TOP 10 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERThe challenges to humanity posed by the digital future, the first detailed examination of the unprecedented form of power called ´´surveillance capitalism,´´ and the quest by powerful corporations to predict and control us.The heady optimism of the Internet´s early days is gone. Technologies that were meant to liberate us have deepened inequality and stoked divisions. Tech companies gather our information online and sell it to the highest bidder, whether government or retailer. Profits now depend not only on predicting our behaviour but modifying it too. How will this fusion of capitalism and the digital shape our values and define our future?Shoshana Zuboff shows that we are at a crossroads. We still have the power to decide what kind of world we want to live in, and what we decide now will shape the rest of the century. Our choices: allow technology to enrich the few and impoverish the many, or harness it and distribute its benefits. The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is a deeply-reasoned examination of the threat of unprecedented power free from democratic oversight. As it explores this new capitalism´s impact on society, politics, business, and technology, it exposes the struggles that will decide both the next chapter of capitalism and the meaning of information civilization. Most critically, it shows how we can protect ourselves and our communities and ensure we are the masters of the digital rather than its slaves.
Ebay is overwhelmingly the most familiar and successful online auction marketplace. This is due to the vision of San Diego, Ca., resident Pierre Omidyar, who started the company in the living room of his home in 1995 with the help of Jeff Skoll. Initially, the two men dealt only in collectible items but felt there was a vast untapped market that they could reach. In 1998, Omidyar and Skoll brought Meg Whitman into the fold. The rest of the story is an example of unimaginable success. Whitman, who had studied at Harvard Business School and was well-versed in branding at companies such as Hasbro, recruited a marketing staff that had an average 20 years´ experience per person. Their collective vision and passion have paid off wildly. According to the 2014 Forbes 2000 list, eBay is worth $71.01 billion. Brand recognition is one of the reasons eBay is an excellent venue source for people who want to make money online. Its sheer magnitude of its brand almost ensures that potential customers will visit the eBay website before going elsewhere. Getting started on eBay is a very easy process. Setting a page up is very nearly intuitive, and easy-to-understand tutorials and detailed instructions abound. Of course, eBay obviously makes a tidy profit. It is a corporation in the business of making money. Fortunately for its online clients, the company asks very modest fees from the people who use its services. eBay makes money because its sellers make money. That is what makes it a great online marketplace. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jared Leslie. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/055312/bk_acx0_055312_sample.mp3.
