Publisher Comments:

We live in a culture of choice. But, in an age of corporate dominance, our freedom to choose has taken on new meaning. Upset with your local big box store? Object to unfair hiring practices at your neighbourhood fast food restaurant? Want to protest the opening of that new multinational coffeeshop? Vote with your feet What if it's not that simple?In No One Makes You Shop at Wal-Mart, Tom Slee unpacks the implications of our fervent belief in the power of choice. Pointing out that individual choice has become the lynchpin of a neoconservative corporate ideology he calls MarketThink, he urges us to re-examine our assumptions . Slee makes use of game theory to argue that individual choice is not inherently bad. Nor is it the societal fix-all that our corporations and governments claim it is. A spirited treatise, this book will make you think about choice in a whole new way.

Synopsis:

As corporations gain more and more power in political, social, and cultural worlds, the freedom to choose has taken on new meaning. Today, individual choice is the lynchpin of a neoconservative corporate ideology that is not inherently bad, but it is not the societal fix-all that corporations and governments claim.
