Oh, without question, I believe morals and ethics should be established for CEO's and corporations.
What I'm more and far more concerned about, however, is the lack of morals in terms of accountability and responsibility.
Because of a total lack of responsibility and oversight, the CEO's of Enron and Worldcom plundered American workers and the American public, and all because no one else knew nothing these corporations lost hundreds of millions, which hurt the American worker and our economy.
Now with the latest tort reform, regular citizens who may feel exploited time and time again by corporations can't take their case to federal court, and can only take it to state courts, which are queued with all sorts of pending cases as it is, which as patient citizens who only want to see to it human rights and health benefits and such are held up in the corporate workplace, these corporations could continue to violate their responsibilities.
THAT'S the main issue here. And I have to tell you, I'm sick of being labeled as anti-business just in expressing this belief. I'm not anti-business. I'm pro-responsibility, pro-respect and pro-civility. And, unfortunately, there truly are CEO's and corporations out there who abuse human rights and are so very irresponsible. I boycott corporations that do just that. But when companies are sound, I am a proud consumer. I reward their high standard of morals with my capital.
I just can't respect a corporation for funding paramilitary operations on union workers, continuing to market a dangerous drug that's linked to 55,000 deaths, or funding a former military dictator Augusto Pinochet.
So, yes, Balladeer, morals shouldn't only be implemented to these corporations and of high importance, each corporation ought to be moved by these morals.
And these sorts of affair scandals, which I am more indifferent over and believe they should just be resolved personally, nevertheless always become hot topic issues in our media and I feel just for the good of it, some sort of moral has got to be implemented there, because the way our mainstream media functions, such scandals as this could only be uneconomical.
