Corporate Dreams: Big Business in American Democracy
The American Dream was a corporate dream. At its 1950s zenith, the American Dream included suburban bungalows, stay-at-home moms, and a middle-class life for the common man. But the squeaky cleanness stopped at the workplace door.
Not of their own free will did business corporations create the American Dream. It took the might of government and the power of labor unions to force the bounty sharing that created a middle class life for ordinary citizens. Any revival of the American Dream will depend on getting the balance right between corporations and a democratic society. Professor James Hoopes takes us on a journey of how the corporate dream came to be.
