RIP Corp

Little Paper Guys: An Overview of Corporate Personhood

Episode Summary

For this episode of RIP Corp, we’re looking at corporate personhood as a concept. How did corporations become people? How did this weird legal fiction become such a powerful defining force in the world? And what would it really mean for a corporation to subvert its Prime Directive ... if that’s even possible.
