Carpets the way of the Corporation

The September issue of AFR BOSS magazine takes up as one of its themes – The Corporation. Specifically following on from the Australian release of the film of the same name.

If the corporation were a real person it would be considered a psychopath, according to a new documentary, The Corporation.

I found BOSS’s second article in the theme the more interesting of the two.
Ray Anderson, chairman of Interface, one of the world’s largest carpet makers (and participant in the documentary) describes his Damascus road experience where he turns his company around from being a plunderer to trying as hard as it can to be environmentally sustainable.
He shows that being good is good business.
It’s not all optimism though. Joel Bakan, University of British Columbia law professor and author of the book on which The Corporation is based sounds a cautionary note
