Joel Bakan is the author of the books ‘The Corporation’ and ‘Childhood Under Siege’.

The Corporation (the last book we read and reviewed) talks about how the structure of large companies essentially forces them to focus purely on profit and disregard any other obligations or responsibilities they may have to those around them. It was also a documentation (of the same title) and Joel is currently working on ‘The Corporation 2’ to be released in late-2018.

Childhood Under Siege talks about how big businesses target children and control their actions through marketing and advertising, as children haven’t fully developed more rational, long-term thinking and planning yet.
