Corporations by definition are legal entities crated by people (known as shareholders), so this "corporate greed" everyone keeps talking about is really a scapegoat for "personal greed".

Just about every economic mind out there equates "greed" with "rational thinking". We all want to be rational human beings, don't we?

Please don't think that greed and benevolence are not compatable; you can be kind and greedy the same way you can be irrational and mean-spirited.

What @4 said. Corporations can't be greedy. They're only in business to make money. But since we as a society are the ones who permit corporations to exist, it's perfectly ok to tax the holy living shit out of them and force them to operate in a system of economic justice. We just have to have the balls to do so.
