Re: [greenyes] Corporation as Psychopath


All good, important questions, Doug. You are probing some truth about "the market" that we all have to understand.

But also good questions are:

- why should corporations not be held to the same standards of accountability as other "persons" under the law (thank you for your posting, Jim Dyer)

- why did Adam Smith warn us (who has the reference here???) of the danger inherent in capitalism/the market in the absence of constraint?

-How would it avoid the problems you see endemic in market capitalism?

-How would it avoid the problems that many socialist economies find themselves in?
