“Governments should fight corporations, not collaborate with them”: Professor Jonathan Marks’ talk featured on TED.com


Conflict is bad. Compromise, consensus, and collaboration are good. Or so we’re told. Lawyer and bioethicist Jonathan Marks challenges this conventional wisdom in a talk featured by TED.com. Conflict between government agencies and corporations is as essential as the constitutional struggle among the branches of government, and competition among corporations. Marks shows how governments can jeopardize public health and the environment when they partner with industry, and confound the common good with common ground. To access the talk, please click here.
