PUBLIC RALLY : TAMING THE CORPORATIONS
Mon 11th Oct, 19.30.
Lieu : Hong Kong Theatre, London School of Economics,
– 50 of the world’s largest economies are Transnational Corporations (TNCs).
– The total income of the 10 largest TNCs is greater than that of the world’s poorest 100 countries.
– About two-thirds of world trade is now accounted for by just 500 companies.
Corporate power is on the rise, placing profits before people and planet. Big business and establishment politicians claim that codes of conduct and voluntary agreements are all that is needed to bring corporate action into blissful harmony with environmental sustainability and social justice. But it isn’t working. This rally addresses the real solutions to Taming the Corporations.
