New DVD - The Corporation

The Corporation
Big Picture Media Corporation, 2005, DVD ACH

Corporations are the dominant institution of our time. One of the reasons such organizations have become so powerful, is because in the mid-1800s they were given the legal status of a "person", in order to encourage economic growth. In this hard-hitting documentary, a successful film-making team follow the legal status of a corporation as a "person" to its logical conclusion, suggesting that an individual who acted in the manor of a corporation would be medically diagnosed as a "psychopath" - a callous, deceitful, self obsessed person who feels no trace of guild at his own inherently amoral actions. Provoking, witty and sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics – including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and Michael Moore.
