Corporations were originally a commonsensical way to pool money and reduce risk for business ventures. It can take credit for quite a few industrial, trade, and capitalistic advancements. However, this Frankenstein has come to dominate the planet. Something is very, very wrong. The United States may be the worst example of this devolution. The nature of the modern corporation “as a person” is dubious, alarming, and harmful. How it came to be and the nature of the transmutation is fascinating, if not disturbing. To investigate this intriguing phenomenon and to discuss values and ethics in this Frankenstein of an institution, Jason and guest Jenni Prisk (of the organization Voices of Women), speak with Richard Grossman, the Co-director of the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy (POCLAD). He is co-author of Taking Care of Business: Citizenship and the Charter of Incorporation. He offers his wisdom by lecturing widely on issues of corporate power, law, and democracy. It’s a no-holds-barred look at what is wrong with capitalism in America.
