ABSTRACT
The article examines well-established, interrelated myths about markets. Markets are in charge and not corporations on the basis of competition and not of control. It is argued that multinational corporations dominate the control of industrial sectors. The ability of states to exercise their political will is perceived to be weakened by the economic power of corporations. The notion of a placeless global corporation is the basis of the assumption of a homogeneity of corporate behavior.
