Description

In this episode, we talk with UCLA corporate law historian Adam Winkler about that other civil rights movement-- the corporate civil rights movement. Its seems like an apt conversation to have on a business show amidst these dynamic times and this generation's civil rights movement.  Move over Pete Seeger, Beyonce, and Z-Ro and make room for Roy Zimmerman. Corporations as people... corporations with civil rights? It is an old story. In fact, you might be surprised just how old.

I found this discussion shallow, ill informed, and unidimensional. E.g., there was no discussion of historical bases of granting charters (especially that they be in the public interest), historical limitations on corporate status (e.g., time limits), the logic of limited liability (and commensurate justifications and obligations), etc. As usual, the interview questions were fawning and uncritical.
