Sandy Reiter, assistant professor of business administration at Washington and Lee and a former plant manager for Honeywell International, will discuss U.S. corporations w on NPR affiliate WMRA’s Virginia Insight show this afternoon (Thursday, December 2) at 3 p.m.,
More than a hundred years ago, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations should have the same rights to due process that American citizens are granted under the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Less than a year ago, the Court granted corporations extensive rights to free speech under the First Amendment. Sandy will be joined by University of Virginia history professor Brian Balogh to look at how rights, responsibilities, and power have evolved for American corporations.
