This review is from: Firm Commitment: Why the corporation is failing us and how to restore trust in it (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The role of the modern corporation and its power to promote innovation and bring disaster in equal measure is a burning debate in contemporary capitalism. In this context this book represents an interesting contribution that tries to prove wrong both those who see the corporation as a beast than needs reigning in, and those who want it set free. The book argues in favour of a new concept of corporate control based on trust seeing as the subject of the corporate project things beyond short term shareholder interest. The author argues that in the company we have something that transcends the temporal and the individual, and as such something that should be reconceptualised as a force for good. All in all this is a great read. The reason why i give it four stars is the fact that the language is sometimes difficult to penetrate.
