Put Corporations in Their PlaceEdit

Ensure corporate social and environmental responsibility with regulations, limits on campaign finance and lobbying, new corporate forms like B-corps, corporate charter reviews, stakeholder dialogues, stockholder and citizen activism, etc. Reward responsible use of corporate power and creativity.

Instead of: allowing corporations to dominate politics and commerce in order to maximize their profits at the expense of all else valued by civil society.

Previous version: Corporations have long fought to operate unfettered and civil society has long fought back to maintain reasonable controls. Today corporations are given the rights of people without the responsibilities, consequences, or time limits of real people. By putting corporations back in their place through a combination of limits to power and broader responsibility, their power and creativity can again be channeled for the good of all.

Deeper DiveEdit

Detailed DescriptionEdit

Corporations used to be temporary entities subject to the towns that gave them a charter to operate. Today they are given the rights of people without the responsibilities, consequences, or time limits of real people. By putting corporations back in their place their power and creativity can again be channeled for the good of all.

There are two main ways to accomplish this:(a) give corporations the responsibilities and limitations of humans as well as the rights

  • B-corp
  • Total corp. responsibility.

(b) recognize that corporations are not human and do not deserve these rights.

  • Reinstate corporate charters
  • Remove free speech' of corporations (citizens united)
