Your Call 060909 Can we think beyond corporations?

Can the dominance of corporate ideology in our lives and in our thinking be reversed? On the next Your Call we'll speak with Douglas Rushkoff, author of Life Inc: How The World Became A Corporation And How To Take It Back. Rushkoff, a novelist and professor of Media Studies at NYU, traces how the logic of markets came to dominate our sense of ourselves and lays out a plan to rehabilitate community power. Send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org or join us live at 11 am. How are you nurturing community? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
