Citizens DisUnited: Passive Investors, Drone CEOs, and the Corporate Capture of the American Dream Citizens DisUnited: Passive Investors, Drone CEOs, and the Corporate Capture of the American Dream

by Robert A.G. Monks

Book Reviews

"Bob Monks clearly shows that our corporate culture has become corrupt, irrelevant, senile, and moribund. To resurrect The American Dream, we need go back to the fundamental values that created this nation and inspire a new era of Just Capitalism based on improving the quality of life for all people."
-- Deepak Chopra

". . . a devastating critique of U.S. corporate governance and the functioning of financial markets."
-- Sir Adrian Cadbury, author of Corporate Governance and Chairmanship: A Personal View

"A brilliant jeremiad. Monks' long work in this field has enabled him to cut through the dross, the flotsam and jetsam, and find the tipping point."
-- Dwight Allison

"A horrifying story and a frightening and worrying one. Much of it I never knew -- not the scale nor the collisions. Congratulations on bringing it all to light."
-- Charles Handy, author of The New Philanthropists

"Unless the serious ills Monks identify are overcome, and speedily, democracy and Western capitalism will be dangerously tarnished and weakened. This book is of that importance."
-- Allen Sykes, Co-author of Capitalism Without Owners Will Fail

"More invaluable advice from Robert A.G. Monks, 'Mr. Corporate Responsibility' on both sides of the Atlantic for decades. Monks analyzes the new breed of dysfunctional 'drone corporations' whose shares are so widely-held as to be out of all outside control and on automatic pilot driven by insider management. He calls out the most influential trustees of pension funds, endowments, and foundations by name, as those on whom we must now rely to take responsibility, and adds many important proposals for necessary reforms. This book needs to be read by asset managers and trustees worldwide."
