Profit Uber Alles

Print
Written by Michael Renner

We live in a world where deregulation and privatization are the rule.  A number of proposed new international trade and investments will make it much easier for corporations to sue governments when they perceive that regulations impinge on their profits.  The likely result would be fewer social health, or environmental rules and, presumably, less citizen recourse to the information consumers need about the impacts of products.  Passing these agreements would further sacrifice sustainability on the altar of profits.
