History of Corporations (United States)

After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society. Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals.

Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end. The states also imposed conditions (some of which remain on the books, though unused) like these*: Ideas & Action.

It seemed like S&P was never going to be held accountable for their actions. But after a months-long investigation, the SEC has declared that they may soon take action against S&P for their misleading mortgage ratings in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis. Reports indicate the SEC just issued a Wells Note indicating they were weighing ‘civil action’ against S&P — but that could amount to a pittance of a fine compared to the enormous profits reaped by S&P’s misdeeds.

Hundreds of protesters have taken to lower Manhattan as part of Occupy Wall Street to protest the financial sector’s abuse of the middle and lower classes. Pushing the SEC to revoke S&P’s credit rating authority would be a major step forward in the fight to rein in Wall Street greed. Personhood_timeline.

Get Money Out. Ohioans Rise Up to Stop Voter Suppression Bill. Pundits, politicians, and publicists all agree: Ohio is crucial to any national election. And this year, Ohio is just one of many states that has had to grapple with legislators’ attempts to restrict voting rights. In 2011, state legislatures across the country considered, and ultimately passed, a range of voter suppression legislation, including photo ID and proof of citizenship requirements, cuts to early and absentee voting, and more. Luckily, Ohio may offer a glimmer of hope for those of us fighting to safeguard voting rights.
