2044 – A Novel About Corporatism

I recently read a novel by Eric Lotke, Research Director at the Campaign for America’s Future. The novel is called 2044. The title is based on the idea of picking up where Orwell’s 1984 left off. 2044 depicts a world and culture that is completely corporatized. The big corporations control everything and don’t play fair. Your life is work – for the corporation.
In the novel a researcher discovers that there is a way to turn salt water into fresh water, which is in short supply and badly needed by people. But this doesn’t suit the interests of the corporations that sell fresh water.
From the novel’s website:

“2044 is an adventure story with a political edge. Set in a world that follows our current social and economic trajectory to the extreme, 2044 is a world of consolidated multi-national corporations, mass produced culture and too much stuff. Private businesses manipulate greed and fear to keep people busy, afraid, and dependent on expensive new products or services just to survive.”

You can buy it here.
