David Rothkopf: The Rise of Private Power
From Occupy Wall Street to Wal-Mart, David Rothkopf examines the struggle that is defining our times: the rise of private power. Thousands of companies now have greater power than all but a handful of states, says Rothkopf, author of Power Inc., and he traces their jockeying for influence right up to today's financial crises, growing inequality, broken international system, and battles over the proper role of government and markets. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
