Author Douglas Rushkoff Speaks on Corporatism and Currencies

Douglas wrote Life, Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation And How To Take It Back.  The fact and irony that the book is published by Random House, a subsidiary of Bertlesmann AG, one of the world's largest media companies is not lost on the author who mentions the dilemma we all face in an corporatized world.
