The Consumer and Corporate Accountability
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1973 - 375 pagine
Much corporate behavior is harmful and unjust. The issues and problems touched on in this book do not constitute a complete nor even comprehensive survey of consumer ills. But all these problems possess a common denominator: they can no longer be ignored. Moreover, intelligent and just solutions must emanate from students of business, economics, political science, sociology, and law, among others. It is hoped that the readings here will contribute to the kind of critical awareness required of any intelligent consumer who must cope with the day-to-day business of preserving and improving the quality of our society. - pages volume.
