Tuesday’s Big Idea
In his book, Citizens DisUnited: Passive Investors, Drone CEOs and the Capture of the American Dream, Robert A.G. Monks defines the "ownerless entities" that are many of today's corporations to military drones:
"They are analogous to the military vehicles that have enormous power and capacity for good and ill. They insulate operators from risk while casting vast externalities and costs onto society."
These ownerless corporations, Monks argues, present serious risks to society. It's their problem. Their fault. And yet, it's our responsibility.
