Prosecute Corporate Crime to Hold Big Businesses Accountable: Sept. 2023 TV program

The September 2023 TV program in the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” series helps us understand how some big businesses are allowed to break federal laws – and get away with it.

Big business corporations have enormous wealth – so they also have enormous power.  The federal government should be making them obey the laws, but – instead – the government keeps refusing to hold them accountable.  This hurts all of us – and our health – and our environment – and our sense of having an honest government.

One expert guest helped us explore this topic.  Rick Claypool is a research director for Public Citizen (  This is the non-profit organization Ralph Nader founded in 1971 to serve the broad public interest and protect people and democracy from abuses by governments and big businesses.  Rick Claypool’s job focuses on corporate crime and wrongdoing and the ways corporate power distorts democracy.  He researches and reports on federal enforcement against corporations, deregulation, and conflicts of interest.
