Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer

Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer by Dean Baker
English | October 6th, 2016 | ISBN: 0692793364 | 263 Pages | True PDF | 5.70 MB

There has been an enormous upward redistribution of income in the United States in the last four decades. In his most recent book, Baker shows that this upward redistribution was not the result of globalization and the natural workings of the market. Rather, it was the result of conscious policies that were designed to put downward pressure on the wages of ordinary workers while protecting and enhancing the incomes of those at the top. Baker explains how rules on trade, patents, copyrights, corporate governance, and macroeconomic policy were rigged to make income flow upward.

A Corporate Form of Freedom: The Emergence of the Modern Nonprofit Sector

A Corporate Form of Freedom: The Emergence of the Modern Nonprofit Sector by Norman Silber
Westview Press | January 2001 | English | ISBN: 0813397626 | 220 pages | PDF | 30 MB

A Corporate Form of Freedom explores how courts and legislatures have decided which nonprofit groups can pursue their missions as corporations. For many years it was a privilege to hold a nonprofit charter. This view changed during the 1950s and 1960s. A new generation contended that legal theory, racial justice, and democratic values demanded that the nonprofit corporate form be available to all groups as a matter of right.
