On this week’s show, we present a recent talk, “Giants – The Global Power Elite,” given by Peter Phillips at Sonoma State University this past March.
Extending the ideas of C. Wright Mills to the 21st century, Peter Phillips contends that a few hundred corporate managers and billionaires now control
the majority of the world’s wealth, and thus are today’s ruling “transnational corporate class” (‘TCC’). He identifies these corporations and individuals
in a forthcoming; the speech is a summary of the ideas in the book.
Peter Phillips is Professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University, and a former director of Project Censored.
