What Does Ralph Nader Really Want?

Reynolds, Alan
February 1975
National Review;2/28/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 7, p219
The article focuses on the ideas of politician Ralph Nader regarding the structure of industrial and political organizations in the United States. The main change that Nader has in mind is using government power to break up and regulate corporate power. However, his image of corporations as "quasigovernments" is said not to be particularly helpful. It is only the government that has the power to force people to buy its services and to prohibit people from working in licensed trades
