TAMING THE GIANT CORPORATION:
A National Conference on Corporate Accountability
Presented by Ralph Nader and
Corporations were originally chartered by the states in the early nineteenth century to be our servants not our masters. Now the servant has become master.
From June 8-10, hundreds of leading scholars, advocates and activists convened in Washington, D.C. to discuss how to subordinate raw corporate power to the will of the people. "Taming the Giant Corporation: A National Conference on Corporate Accountability," sponsored by Ralph Nader and the Center for Study of Responsive Law, was held in Washington, D.C.
Conference speakers included U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman, Mark Green of Air America, Thea Lee of the AFL-CIO and many more.
"Taming the Corporation" aimed to go beyond exposť to galvanize discussion, insight and strategic thinking about how to subordinate corporate power to the will and interests of the people.
