Excessive independence of transnational corporations
Nature: As the scope of transnational corporation (TNC) activities widen and they face fewer restrictions in shaping their strategies and structures, there are misgivings that international corporations are able to exercise growing economic influence largely unchecked by governments or trade unions.
Claim: The multinational corporation is the most powerful institution of our time, dominating not only global economics, but politics and culture as well. The enormous influence of the corporation notwithstanding, the mechanisms of corporate control and the details of corporate abuses remain largely hidden from public perception.
