IN THIS SUMMARY

In Corporations Are Not People, Jeffrey Clements details the destructive and far-reaching effects of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision that ushered in the bizarre doctrine that corporations are people with free speech and other rights. With this decision, the Supreme Court reversed a century of legislative efforts to prevent corporate money from corrupting democracy and upended the notion that the U.S. has a government of the people rather than a government of corporate wealth. Clements contends that unbalanced corporate power has perverted the Bill of Rights and turned it into a charter for corporations. But he claims people can fight back to restore a government of the people and save the country.
