Corporate criminality: Context and consequence
The entire architecture and edifice of corporate capital foundationally requires the constant production, reproduction and eventual destruction of people and planet. As such, criminality is at the heart of its construction.
‘Corporate crime costs the United States more annually than all other crime taken together’
– Richard D. Hartley (2008)
‘The position of large corporations in the global economy provides the most mouthwatering opportunities for illegal profits’
– Michael Woodiwiss (2005)
The history of corporate capital is a history of criminality.
