The Role of Corporations in Society

Sarah Bradley


At this session, we look at corporations close-up. How should we look at the role of corporations in society: As an efficient model for financing, making, and selling widgets? As a Leviathan wielding enough power to cripple entire economies? As a "a state within a state" that exerts more political/social/economic influence on our daily lives than even some governments?

"It's tempting to blame or demonize the 'big bad corporations' for the failures of capitalism," says Professor Sarah Bradley of the Schulich School of Law. "And we should certainly look at the problems created with this system, but we shouldn't overlook the very important role that corporations do play in society."
