The corporate Hall of Shame is another one:

and then you have...

and a lot more...

On a different note: spotting bad corporations is easy. Here is a new game.

Can you name a corporation with a GOOD corporate conscience? (Exept for the Coop and Clipper teas)

Hello nelson, well at least i made an effort! =p

Anyway, at the website I just posted before, check out Bayer Corp's profile:

http://www.corporatewatch.org.uk/profiles/profiles.html

It used to be IG Faben, responsible for making chemical weapons, and testing in concentration camps, and slave labour in WWI and WWII.

Oh, hi Martin! Sorry, I couldn't look at your user profile to find who you were, because I had to reinstall Windows, lost FTP connection settings, etc, etc... anyway, welcome 'round here!

If you find the track records of companies disturbing, what would you say of governments that turn a blind eye (or actively encourage) this sort of behaviour?

Oh, not only America!

A British company had to close their abestos factories in the UK because of the toxics it created, so... they just moved it to South Africa instead. Hey, who care if children dies as long as they are not your own?

probably true, but i suppose alot of other countries are equally as guilty if not quite on the same scale, that's human nature for you...
