about

Driven by declining profits and government regulation, a new form of class-wide business leadership has emerged: a transcorporate network that is giving a new coherence and power to business in both America and Britain. This book delineates the "inner circle" of top executives who play aleading role in this network, advising the highest levels of government and working to promote a political environment favorable to all business.
