Bakan, J. (2004) 《公司:病态追求利润和权力》纽约:自由出版社。从简短的分析来说,作者提出:现在的公司是追求自身利益的实体,不是用任意一种方式关心他人的公司。他给我们提供了一个关于公司怎么形成和怎么后来发展起来以及他们刚刚占据领导地位的总结。他也指出公司有这么大的影响的原因,其在于他们集中注意力于提高他们的权力和利润。用他的话来总结,Bakan声明,他并不同意公司记住公民利益的观点。还不如说,如果公司的个人利益成功地成为了公众利益的影响因素,他们就会参与于公共利益。这本书被高度推荐给那些想要了解清楚公司的实质是什么的人。

Moin A. Yahya (2007) A book review of Joel Bakan’s The Corporation . (pp. 1 -13) University of Alberta.  Canada. The author believes that this is a provocative book.  Moin A.  Yahya claims that this book portrays a corporation as a vehicle where good women and men use to harm the society. This is due to the fact that a corporation is created and protected by the law. Moin A. Yahya agrees with what Bakan says in the book when he parades the various evils that the corporation commits. This includes low wages, oppressing the masses, many corporate crimes and environmentaldamage. However, Moin A. Yahya does not agree with the reforms that Bakan proposes that will enable the balance of power between the corporations and the people. She asserts that corporation has immense power and can not relinquish it no matter the cost. The interest of the corporation manager overrides the interest of the public. In this article, Moin A. Yahya clearly analyses the arguments brought forward by Bakan and agrees with the central argument that corporations have sidestepped their main responsibility of looking out for the interest of the public and have focused on their own. This article explains the arguments that Bakan brings forth in his book.
