Europe Inc., published in 2000 by Pluto Press (2nd edition in 2003, can be ordered on line) in association with Corporate Europe Observatory, provides a unique and comprehensive overview of the systematic ways in which transnational corporations – working through lobby groups – have succeeded in influencing a wide range of policies of the EU and other international institutions, such as the OECD, WTO and the United Nations. The authors cover the major players in these anti-democratic practices and analyse the structural and political factors which have enabled transnational corporations to become such a dominant force in politics.
Exposing the lobbying of big business costs money. Would you consider a donation to help us continue? We refuse funding from the EU, governments, political parties and corporations to be as independent as possible, so every single donation really helps. Thanks!
