The Corporation - Documentary on Corporate Influence

The Corporation is a 2003 Canadian documentary film and book critical of the modern-day corporation and its behavior towards society. The topics addressed include the Business Plot in 1933 when General Smedley Butler confessed his role in planning a coup against then U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the enclosure of the commons, economic externalities, the suppression of an investigative news story about bovine growth hormone on a Fox affiliate television station, and the Cochabamba protests of 2000 brought on by the privatization of Bolivia's municipal water supply by the Bechtel corporation. Other topics include corporate social responsibility and corporate personhood. The film focuses mostly on the concept of the corporation in North America, especially in the United States.
