Quotes

THE CORPORATION raises questions about the enduring viability and value of the corporation as the primary vehicle for organizing the production of wealth in market-based societies. It raises important concerns about the impact of the corporate structure on a range of public goods and should provoke thinking about whether or not there are better ways to more effectively organize production for the general welfare.
