Multinational Corporations Versus Democracy

New page as subject, the conclusion reads:

"Massive corporations can outmanoeuvre governments and therefore evade the law. Multinationals organisations like the UN and EU can fight back. The heads of large companies have massive power over staff, employment, industry, national economies, the environment and yet are not elected nor publicly accountable for their actions. Supra-national organisations, staffed by those on the pay roll of elected governments, empowers democracy with renewed control. National democratic consolidation of power is required in order to reign in multinational corporations that are presently beyond the law because they can avoid the laws of any one particular government."

It's a page I've been meaning to write for a year! I have quite a lot of further material but need to polish up what I'm trying to say, before I try to say it!
