Summary "Just as the original Populist movement of the nineteenth century helped dethrone the robber barons, Derber contends that a new, positive populism can help contemporary Americans regain control of their lives. In clear, straightforward language, free from the rhetoric of left or right, he calls for changes in our corporate system, changes designed to keep corporations wealthy (business leaders, take note!) while making them accountable to the people. From rewriting corporate charters to changing our consumer habits, Derber offers new visions for business and empowering strategies by which we all can make a difference."--Jacket.
