Society Issues Business

We welcome links related to Corporate Operations which (1) Generate concerns about its effect upon Society, (2) which raise concerns about corporation's effects on society or her issues, and (3) seek to address or enlighten the public about corporate operations.

Why? Because corporations, especially multinational ones, have become so powerful.

Therefore, even ones which wish to exercise no harm, may still do so.

This category is intended to go beyond verbalizations to include "other senses," such as murals, dramatizations, and any effective communication about or within the realm of Corporate Operations.

Sites devoted to promotion of Corporations may be included only to the extent that they are relevant to addressing the topic here.

Activist information about Corporate Operations may be included. We seek balance and fairness. We wish to hear from all points of view. As sites submitted to Society/Issues/Corporate Operations enlarges, we expect to have sub categories on Nonprofits, Nationalization, Multinationals, Overcharging, and so on.
