did not like it
Read in January, 2009

I was disappointed by this book by Chomsky. The introduction written by McChesney is not consistent with the entire rest of the book. McChesney goes off on classical liberal doctrine. Then Chomsky goes off on business-government collusion, but he can't seem to decide what he is against, and he ends up pointing fingers at everyone.

I also don't like paying money for a book only to find out it is simply a collection of articles that the author decided to compile and then use his name to make extry money by calling it a new book. I guess I should've done my homework.

The title is what caught my attention, but if you're interested in such a topic then read Korten's WHEN CORPORATIONS RULE THE WORLD. It is much better, even though it's much bigger.
