The Corporation-The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power

Award winning author and screenwriter looks at the past, present, and future of The Corporation!

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 18th, 2009 -- Voice America, the world's premiere web radio network, announces the appearance of renowned author, screenwriter and law professor Joel Bakan exclusively on the highly acclaimed ZenBiz Radio Show on Wednesday March. 18th at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time, 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time at

The film, "The Corporation", winner of 26 International awards, including the 2004 Sundance Film Festival,was based on Joel Bakan's book, "The Corporation-The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power."

Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time.

Part film and part movement, The Corporation transformed audiences and dazzled critics with its insightful and compelling analysis.

And now five years later from Enron to AIG, Bakan asks the rhetorical question; "Have we learned anything"?

Bakan will talk about the hyping of worthless stock and corporate fraud that facilitates the wealth of those extracting enormous and unjustified salaries and perks.

As well, he notes that over the last 300 years corporations have amassed such great power as to weaken governments ability to control them.

Indeed congress has gotten its piece of the action as corporate leaders share part of their profits with the very politicians charged with regulating them.

Some politicians even own stock in the companies they regulate.

Find out about his compelling prediction about the future of the corporation in America.
