Paper 3 The documentary, “The Corporation”, addresses the negative issues that corporations bring to the world. Every corporation works to provide value and profits for its shareholders while continuing to grow. By putting the shareholders first, corporations force the public to take in problems, externalities, which the corporation has created. Corporations mistreat the environment, animals, and other human beings. Through a Supreme Court ruling, a corporation is now considered a person and therefore has the rights of a human being. The film brings up the question, what kind of person is a corporation? After a review of the mental characteristics of a corporation through a checklist it was concluded that, if it were a human, a corporation would be considered a psychopath. They harm all of society in many ways but because the corporation is in charge and not the people who work within it, problems continue to arise with the constant pursuit of profit.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
