    schema:description ""Corporations are responsible for an immense number of deaths and injuries, for massive environmental destruction and financial damage, but they are seldom help accountable for their acts. The monetary costs of the 2008 financial crisis, a crisis created by high level mismanagement and fraud, were in the trillions, yet to this day none of those responsible has served a day in prison. Governments compete to devise ever greater punishments for street criminals, whose offences collectively cause far less social and economic harm, but corporate criminals, if called to account at all, receive second chances and fines that are trivial compared to profit levels. In About Canada: Corporate Crime, Laureen Snider traces the ways that particular systems of government -- from ninteenth-century crony capitalism to today's neoliberal democracies -- develop policies regarding the socially harmful and illegal behaviour of corporations. This book shows why governments are reluctant to pass, enforce and administer meaningful regulation of corporations: they are institutions with the power to put thousands of potential voters out of work, generate negative commentaries from highly respected experts and produce critical editorials from 80 percent of Canadian media (owed and controlled, let us remember, by many of these same corporations). In the end, Snider asks the most important question of all : How can we change our political and economic systems to prevent, or at the very least mitigate, the tremendous damage corporate activities are inflicting on human lives, health, jobs, communities and economies?" --"@en ;
