Nader, Ralph
July 2012
Orion Magazine;Jul/Aug2012, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p57
In the article, the author discusses the need to end corporatism, specifically in the U.S., in order to arrest the decline of the economy as well as the weakening democracy. He cites the opinions of several free-market philosophers and theorists that corporatism is not compatible with both conservatism and liberalism. He claims that the fight to end corporatism and rebuild democracy is mainly the responsibility of the U.S. Congress.
