Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Earlier this month, President Clinton hosted a roundtable on Corporate Responsibility with business and a few labor leaders, academics and the press. But what was accomplished more than a little nice chat about good corporate citizenship, worker retraining and family friendly workplaces? The summit didn’t challenge the nature of corporate greed nor the vast environmental and labor abuses that persist in U.S. workplaces.

GUEST: RALPH ESTES, Professor of Business at American University and author of Tyranny of the Bottom Line: Why Corporations Make Good People Do Bad Things. RUSSELL MOKHIBER, Editor of the Corporate Crime Reporter.
