"In most cases, big business has to be bludgeoned to do the right thing.
They don't need to be bludgeoned if they're given the right incentives".
<sarcasm> Yeah, right. The $7.2 BILLION in tax encentives and governmental perks didn't help the poor employees of Enron, did it? And that's just one recent example. History hasn't shown big business to be anything other than totally self-serving. The examples of "enlightened" companies is but a handful out of the masses. One can only look at the horrible state of pensions as a simple example. And don't get me started on health care, hostile takeovers and the like.
