Corporate corruption is the new normal, Americans say
Polls show that nearly three-quarters of Americans think that corporate corruption has increased in recent years, with 62% saying corporate corruption is endemic. That could have a lasting impact on the way people relate to businesses and public institutions, writes Eduardo Porter. “It’s hard to fathom the broader social implications of corporate wrongdoing. But its most long-lasting impact may be on Americans’ trust in the institutions that underpin the nation’s liberal market democracy,” he argues.
