Human Values and Corporate Impact
The case of JPMorgan Chase
The Supreme Court’s 2010 “Citizens United” decision affirms the legality of treating corporations as persons — having a right to free speech, manifested in money contributions in elections. But, corporations should not be treated as people, because they do not act like people, argues Donald J. Munro of the University of Michigan. In this six-part series, Munro focuses on how certain human moral values and some corporate behaviors are incompatible, using JPMorgan Chase as an example.
