The Corporation (2003)


THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.

A Canadian film that examines and critiques modern day corporate practices, which eventually lead to corporations being systematically compelled to behave like psychopaths.

If there is one thing to take away from this documentary, externalities. The costs of operating a for profit business being placed on the tax payer without the taxpayer receiving any benefit. Our local Walmart has employees that use the social safety net all over the place. We pay for those services instead of Walmart paying a livable wage. Not to mention the over 1000 calls for police support per year at ONE store. Great movie.
