Herbert I. Schiller

Overview

In recent years, the power held by large multinational corporations has skyrocketed. But by the late 1980s, the influence of big business had already reached unforeseen new levels in almost every aspect of people's lives.

Media critic Herbert Schiller's unsettling 1989 book outlines his perspective on what he saw as a 'corporate-managed society'. In Culture, Inc, Schiller argues that corporate power has had extensive negative effects on cultural production and individual expression in America, turning it into a bland society completely dominated by consumerist values.
