Today, we started dealing with the corporation, written by Joel Bakan. Before start reading the content, we searched for 3B about the book. 3B is an abbreviation of Background, Biography and Bias. We looked for the content of the book, the author, the movie and the directors of the movie.
The author is a university professor of law in Canada, and we found that the content of the book is about the innovation of the cooperation today. Because modern corporations put emphasis on profit rather than individual happiness, the author argues that the cooperation should be changed as more liberal and people oriented institution. This also became a documentary movie in Canada with directors, Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott, who directed documentary movie of gay marriage.
As we searched for information, we could find that the author is rather liberal, and approaches the issue from the point of law. I think that information will be very helpful in reading the book, and identify the author's position about the topic.
