Corporations have constraints. Supposedly, those constraints would limit most abuses such as low wages, environmental disasters, monopolistic Muhhahahaaa!-I’m-conquering-the-world plots, and such expressions of self interest at the expense of others and contexts. There are exceptions, but overall it works.
The recent information released through Wikileaks and other such sites, seem to indicate these exceptions are the general case.
Are the constraints wishful thinking? Truisms?
