Many see Corporations are all powerful entities who run the world. I have never ascribed to this view. Kodak just went into Chap 11, just 35 years ago they controlled 90% of their market and had the highest rated brand in the US, now they are on their way out taking over 100k jobs with them, good paying jobs.
