“The top 400 people own more wealth than the bottom 185 million Americans taken together. That is a medieval structure.” ~ Gar Alperovitz

We may not think much about the fact that of the 100 largest economies in the world, 51 are corporations while only 49 are countries. Or how corporations wield incredible influence over the policies and direction of entire nations. Nor may we be aware that the alleged Supreme Court ‘corporations are persons’ ruling in 1886 never happened — it was actually a fiction created by the court’s reporter, who had written the words into the headnote of the decision. The Supreme Court Chief Justice of the time explicitly informed the reporter that the court had not ruled on corporate personhood in the Santa Clara case — but, for better or worse, that misrepresentation stuck.

Regardless, today, corporations significantly affect a large part of our daily lives. Seeing the problems inherent within the corporate model, many have attempted to break the monopoly corporations have over business in an attempt to create a true free-market, where all people — not just a select few at the top — can genuinely flourish.

One of the most successful methods for placing the power squarely back into the hands of real people is to cultivate business that’s rooted in community. Instead of organizing a massive offensive against corporate evil, individuals are ‘being the change’, turning their focus toward creating the kind of business structures they would like to see in the world — and in turn, they have created a grassroots economic revolution that’s sweeping across America.
