Abstract: Does anyone really like corporations? In America, the populist streak is never far below the surface, and corporations are always the target of some anger. Of course, the oil companies get more than their fair share, due largely to the peculiar American belief that cheap gasoline is an inalienable right no less central to our way of life than free speech. And then there are flagrant corporate wrong-doers like Enron. But aside from these obvious targets, the corporation that catches the most flack has got to be Wal-Mart.
