Interestingly though billed as comedy and written by a comedian this book is not at all funny The writing is kind of awful and the Caderea Constantinopolelui vol.1 punctuation follows no rules I can discern Still it isainful and informative and angering awful and the The Roman Family punctuation follows no rules I can discern Still it isainful and informative and angering worth reading But definitely not funny If you drink Coke or any of their The Toy Tree products you may want to know that the US company has been responsible for union busting all over the world throwing otherwise fine employees intooverty and fear for their lives Individuals have even been murdered because they dared to join the union and US Coke executives have looked the other way Coke has built bottling Eye of Wolf plants in drought stricken areas and used all the wateraying for none of it and leaving the locals with none to drinkWhen we give multinational companies our consumer dollars we fund these The Lost Girl practices Oh and by the way like so many other things Fanta was created in Germany during WW2 as a Coca Cola Company substitute for Coke bc the Coke ingredients weren t available So important that the Nazis get their sparkly beverages Ugh So I definitely DON T want to buy the world a Coke It isn t all that surprisingly that the inventor of Coca Cola which was a bit of an accident anyway was as Thomas calls him a chunkie junkie a cubby guy with a morphine addiction The Coca Cola museum has a civil rights museum attached to itself Yet it was M L King J who imploredeople not to support companies that The Bride Wore Size 12 (Heather Wells, practiced unfair hiring whites over blacks and one of three companies he explicitly askedeople to boycott was Coca Cola In his own words We are asking you tonight to go out and tell your neighbors boycott was Coca Cola In his own words We are asking you tonight to go out and tell your neighbors buy Coca Cola in Memphis Thankfully the brand value of Coca Cola has lost some The Ghost Bride profit in recent years That means less support going to human rights violations and less obesity Solving child labor involves a lot of changes which the Salvadorian government and Coca Cola don t seem enthusiastic about doing so they d rather just hide the fact that there are child laborers literally the kids run at the site of a jeep I m not going to go into detail about how harvesting sugar can is one of the worst kinds of child labor Buy domestic sugar you don t need to shell out for the fair trade kind since 80% of sugar is made domestic so go out there and buy localI was also aware of how cheap Coca Cola was toroduce but it is still mind boggling Consider that for less than the cost of a Big Mac one could create a unit 50000 drinks of concentrate. Coca Cola and its logo are everywhere In our homes our workplaces even our schools It is a company that sponsors the Olympics backs US Postpartum Depression Demystified presidents and even re brands Santa Claus A truly universalroduct it has even been served in spaceFrom. As we all move towards globalism thought it would behoove me to read about how companies are moving within this realm Coke is a huge brand and when I saw this book it caught my eyeThe author explains the structure of Coke how it works internally and with it s suppliers and distributors The company has ublished CORPORATE POLICIES AND THE AUTHOR SET ABOUT TO EXPLORE policies and the author set about to explore these were being held to throughout the chain He travels to Central America India and exotic Delaware to view and discuss firsthand with those involvedHe witnesses child labor intimidation of store owners Body Parts of Empire pollution safety hazards and the stealing of water in a drought ridden area of India reducing the water by 23 and causing much havocMr Thomasrovides his findings to Coke to receive a response and is given the runaroundI initially felt the read was slow since the majority of it focused on India and Central America In the end I felt it drove home the Elsie Clews Parsons point of theroblems of having companies be able to go into a weak and Political Philosophy of Hobbes poor country and take without giving backI have no illusions A company is created for one reason torovide a vehicle for Early Chinese Religion Part Two people to make money A company has no other role nor should it What is definitely lacking is the regulation of what companies are allowed to do in order to generate revenue Stealing resourcesolluting and mafia tactics should not be allowed Especially from a company that only has a brand name and distributes sugary syrup or as Coke likes to call their Jung product sparkling beverageA local restaurant owner in Boston was asked what their highest marked up menu item was They replied water It takes Coke less than 400 ingredients and labor to create syrup for 50000 drinks When you essentially steal water from countries it seems apparent how a company can make 67 billion a year on sugar water Mark Thomas likes Coca Cola hates Pepsi It is too easy to see him as a knee jerk rejecter of all theroducts of multi national corporations and think Yadda yadda yadda about his somewhat bizarre brand of comedy but he won me over with those opening frank statements of his The Primitive Mind and Modern Civilization personal feelings I am right with him on the choice between Coke and Pepsi Faced with Pepsi as the only option I may well choose to go thirsty and have not so Coca Cola I generallyrefer water but that often costs both upfront and being outside free refill offers and if not being out of my own tap it is heavy because I have carried it around and uite Peluru di Matamu (Johana Rijkaard, Buku 3) probably not suffic.
