HARRY GLASBEEK: My vision is to reach people who are affected on a daily basis by corporate activities but don't have the information to understand the law. I have deliberately written this book in a non-technical fashion, while still being accurate. I argue that the legal architecture of the corporation itself is faulty. Although the law is not supposed to favour the rich over the poor, corporate law itself instils those inequalities. The law actually legitimates and sanctions this situation. PS: You have written a number of books on the law. How is Wealth By Stealth different?

He has written and taught on corporate law, corporate social responsibility, and corporate er description. Includes bibliographical references (pages 336-357) and index.

Wealth by Stealth : Corporate Crime, Corporate Law, and the Perversion of Democracy. Glasbeek has made a superb contribution to our understanding of the dangerous and pathological nature of corporations, and the threat they pose to democracy. And he manages to do this with wit, humour and panache. Read this book! 0. Report.

Wealth by Stealth is a scathing introduction to the operations of the modern corporation, written by a corporate lawyer. Glasbeek takes these observations further and outlines clearly how corporations become so powerful. Many writers point to the growth of undemocratic corporate power. He also shows how they are able to act without regard to the behaviour and laws governing citizens and other groups. Glasbeek is known by generations of students for his brilliant, funny lectures at Osgoode Hall Law School.

The pictorial cover of Harry Glasbeek’s polemic on corporate irresponsibility speaks the proverbial thousand words

The pictorial cover of Harry Glasbeek’s polemic on corporate irresponsibility speaks the proverbial thousand words. A pair of besuited corporate wolves, fangs bared, conspire together in a wood-paneled gentlemen’s club library. Fine china tea cups are laid beside them on a table bearing a cloth patterned with international currency. Professor Glasbeek’s thesis in this passionately written treatise is plain: the corporate law practised in western liberal democracies allows and indeed encourages the accumulation of wealth by a very few at the expense of the wellbeing of the broader global community.

Reviews:
  • Fomand
What a tour de force! Revealing and detailed, this resource is heavy duty stuff for anyone who wants to fully understand the history, background and foundation for those general feelings some of us have that there is a problem with the entity we call the corporation, and the legal basis for capitalist -- and democratic free market -- society. A vast wealth of information is offered as notes to the main text...a decent read quite apart from the book itself.
