Winner of the Porter Prize, this classic study thoroughly profiles the corporate elite of late twentieth-century Canada, within a global context. It traces the fundamental changes in the structure of corporate power in Canada since the mid-1970s and highlights such key issues as the place of Canadian corporate power in global context, the westward shift of Canadian corporate power, and the emergence of a North American corporate elite.
Corporate Power in a Globalizing World opens with a survey of corporate power and discusses the evolution from oligarchy to corporate governance. The majority of the chapters then profile what the author calls "particularities of time and place"--for example, corporate organization and "disorganized capitalism," strategic alignments, the westward shift, continental connections, the evolution of a North American corporate elite, and the Canadian corporate elite in the context of global power structures. The final segment highlights corporate and university governance in the era of neoliberalism and the consolidation of a neoliberal policy bloc. A new foreword brings the book completely up to date.
