Interview With the Corbett Report Radio Show on The People’s Book Project and the American Empire

The following was an interview I did with the Corbett Report Radio show on 11 January 2012, discussing The People’s Book Project and the American Empire.

Tonight we talk to Andrew Gavin Marshall about The People’s Book Project, an experiment in crowdfunding to counter the influence of the multinational corporations, foundations and other institutions that have been directing our society for generations with their seemingly unlimited funds. We discuss the book, Andrew’s forthcoming podcast, “Empire, Power, and People,” for BoilingFrogsPost.com, and the institutional framework that has been laid by organizations like the CFR for the projection of American power throughout the globe.
