Overview

In titling his book 'The Post-Corporate World : Life After Capitalism,' you'd think that the author would at least IMAGINE a world without corporations and without capitalism. He does not. He can not. He proceeds to knock the market economy, calling capitalism a cancer, but offers nothing to take its place. This book is only a compliation of his negative feelings about the world the way it is. Amazingly, his only meager suggestions are for people to buy from small businesses and to avoid buying from large corporations. He repeats over and over again throughout the book that capitalism is a cancer, as if repeating it would make it so. And this guy taught college? He seems to think that small businesses are not practicing capitalism, and that just because they are small, family-owned businesses are not set up as corporations. He does not even comprehend Economics 101. But wait! He has no quams about mistitling his book and misleading people to buy HIS product. Life after capitalism? Not a clue in his book about that. Well, well, he is a scam artist himself -- himself embodying the very essence of what he would call the evil capitalist: making money by misrepresentation. For a tree-hugger, he does not seem to mind the waste of paper on his book. Don't waste your money -- a meal at McDonalds and shirt from the Gap cost less combined than the book and is more satisfying.
