Externalizing rent-seekers

Written by James Gustave Speth

Today's corporations have been called "externalizing machines," so committed are they to keeping the real costs of their activities external to (that is, off) their books.  They might also be called "rent-seeking" machines, so committed are they to finding subsidies, tax breaks, and regulatory loopholes from government.  The environment, of course, suffers as a result.
