Poll Shows Americans Are Angry with Corporate Greed

The issue of corporate responsibility emerged early on in this election year, with the presidential campaigns of right wing populist Pat Buchanan and consumer advocate Ralph Nader. But it hasn’t yet really hit the radar of the major candidates. Sure, President Clinton held a summit on corporate citizenship this spring, but its unlikely that a President so indebted to corporate America will challenge corporate power in this election year, even if that’s something voters would like to see. A new poll released this week shows that the public is getting increasing angry with corporate greed and that people want the government to do something about it. Joining us now to talk about this poll and state and local grassroots efforts to push for corporate responsibility are Scott Nova and Ethel Klein.

A description of some of the laws that cities and states have been passing to redress corporate greed. TAPE OF ROBERT REICH.
