Filmmakers Mark Achbar (Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media) and Jennifer Abbott construct a fascinating 'personality profile' of your garden variety corporation and find that it most closely corresponds, in behavioural terms, to a psychopath.
A compelling inquiry into the 'nature' of this parasitical organism is rendered even more disturbing when Achbar and Abbott delve deeper into the connections between corporate self-interest, political opportunism and economic globalisation which, combined, spawn a beast of altogether more rapacious and insidious instincts.
Noam Chomsky and Naomi Klein add their voices to those of former and current CEOs and Vice Presidents, whistleblowers and one very pragmatic financial analyst.
