Corporations: Masters or Servants? | Print |
December 2011

“The role corporations play in American economics and politics is changing. Unfortunately, the changes are negative and pose serious threats to our society, our security, and our overall standard of living,” writes FCFEP Chair Nelson Easterling.

“There is clearly a growing schism between reality and the supporters of corporate power. Proponents of corporate power seem to think that the market and corporations are somehow better than real people.

“Every corporation is the creation of a government. Every corporation exists only because the people have authorized their representatives to define and delimit their existence. Corporations are, therefore, created to be the servants of the sovereign people, not their masters.”
