Carroll looks at the accumulation of capital in Canada since the Second World War. Most of the book is devoted to tracing actual patterns of corporate ownership and intercorporate relationships.
Abstract: CORPORATE POWER AND CANADIAN CAPITALISM examines the way in which capital is concentrated in a relately few giant corporations in Canada, and puts forward the argument that, contrary to what is commonly believed, Canadian corporate interests are not in fact subordinated to American corporate capital. It argues that the Canadian economy is largely under the control of an indigenous financial-industrial elite.
In putting forward his argument, Carroll looks at the accumulation of capital in Canada since the Second World War. Most of the book is devoted to tracing actual patterns of corporate ownership and intercorporate relationships.
