Corporate Power and Social Responsibility
With demonstrations against corporations erupting around the world, Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal reporter Ellen Schultz, author of Retirement Heist: How Companies Plunder and Profit from the Nest Eggs of American Workers, joins us to discuss corporate greed. Joining her is Vermont Law School professor Jennifer Taub, whose research focuses on corporate social responsibility, shareholders' rights, and consumer protection. A former VP and counsel for Fidelity Investments, Taub's book, The Great Betrayal: How Washington Bailed Out Wall Street but Left Main Street Underwater, is forthcoming.
This ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addresses current social and political issues.
