Synopsis:

This new and updated edition of Big Business, Poor Peoples exposes how many of the natural resources of developing countries are being ceded to transnational corporations answerable to no one but their shareholders. The author argues that transnational corporations have used their money, size and power to influence international negotiations and that they have taken full advantage of the move towards privatization to influence the policies of governments. Sovereignty, he concludes, is passing into corporate hands and the poor are paying the price. But people are fighting back. Citizens, workers, communities, are exposing the corporations and looking for alternatives.

About the Author:

John Madeley is a best-selling author, journalist and broadcaster, specializing in economic and social development issues, notably international trade, transnational corporations, food and agriculture, aid, poverty and hunger, and human rights.
