Clarke Program on Corporations & Society
Corporations are among the most powerful institutions on the planet. They rival nation states in their wealth and influence. US corporations alone control $40,000,000,000,000 in assets.
What impact do corporations have on our economy, society, political system, and planet? The Clarke Program on Corporations & Society seeks to develop and promote a better understanding of the answer to this question. It recognizes the enormous potential that business corporations have to benefit society and help us address our most pressing problems: mitigating climate change, expanding human life spans, raising living standards, developing vital new technologies, providing well-paying jobs, earning returns for investors that allow a secure retirement.
The Clarke Program on Corporations & Society supports research, conferences, scholarship, and communications initiatives to promote a better understanding of the nature of corporations and the role they play in our society.
