Chinese commentaries stress the opportunity that the investments and aid they offer presents to developing countries to avoid the hazards of reliance on Western dominated financial institutions: austerity programs that call for severe cuts in state-subsidized social welfare, deregulation of state-owned facilities, trade liberalization, and an open door for multinational corporation investment. ~ Melvin Gurtov
Multinational Corporation quotes by Melvin Gurtov
What if one out of every three multinational corporation CEO's were raped every year? Don't you think that would raise a kind of ruckus? ~ Inga Muscio
Multinational Corporation quotes by Inga Muscio
Almsgiving is a major tenet of Islam. It's also a kick in the pants of the highest order. Nothing is as cool as skimming off a couple of hundred thousand from some multinational corporation and handing it out to random strangers. Or writing a harmless little virus that makes credit counters "forget" to send a surcharge back to the bank after each purchase. Oh, sure, technically I'm supposed to give away my own money, but whatever. I'm sure Allah gets the spirit of what I'm doing here. ~ Lyda Morehouse
Multinational Corporation quotes by Lyda Morehouse
God's purpose for my life resided not so much in what I did as in how I did it. It didn't matter whether God gave me a large role or a tiny one; I could still have impact if I could learn to do one thing - to love people in whatever circumstance I found myself. Why? Because love lasts. Because love never fails. Because love does not envy, and it never boasts. It is neither proud nor rude. Love is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes. Love never gives up. God is love. Love, in fact, is the hardest, most powerful thing in the world. Whether driving a child to school, leading a church, cleaning a bathroom, heading up a multinational corporation, or washing feet, love is the secret to making a lasting impact. ~ Ann Spangler
Multinational Corporation quotes by Ann Spangler
No, seriously, you should bury her up to her neck and throw rocks at her until she dies. What a crazy lunatic, offering her child a normal, healthy mammalian childhood. A woman in full bloom of health daring to use her body according to its biological design and function? Gross! When she could be purchasing from a multinational corporation a totally inferior product for the same purpose. That's downright un-American. And to do so within full view of an intellectual such as yourself!? Tie her up and SET HER ON FUCKING FIRE. ~ Elisa Albert
Multinational Corporation quotes by Elisa Albert
Nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state. ~ Zbigniew Brzezinski
Multinational Corporation quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Large numbers of young people are waking up. And they are saying, "We are not here just to work for multinational corporations and make money for them. We are here to live. We have to find the meaning of life." ~ Satish Kumar
Multinational Corporation quotes by Satish Kumar
A system is corrupt when it is strictly profit-driven, not driven to serve the best interests of its people, but those of multinational corporations. ~ Suzy Kassem
Multinational Corporation quotes by Suzy Kassem
One doesn't have to be a large corporation to benefit from the advantages of volume. This can also be achieved through joint ventures. ~ Norbert Reithofer
Multinational Corporation quotes by Norbert Reithofer
I am sorry to be leaving the BBC. I have enjoyed a fascinating seven years at the corporation and am particularly proud to have played a small part in the development of the BBC's Global News services, BBC World Service and BBC World. ~ Pauline Neville-Jones
Multinational Corporation quotes by Pauline Neville-Jones
There is the general belief that the corporation income tax is a tax on the "rich" and on the "fat cats." But with pension funds owning 30% of American large business-and soon to own 50%-the corporation income tax, in effect, eases the load on those in top income brackets and penalizes the beneficiaries of pension funds. ~ Peter Drucker
Multinational Corporation quotes by Peter Drucker
If longevity is the best index to measure a company, a basic requirement is the ability of the corporation to generate new and new leaders. ~ N. R. Narayana Murthy
Multinational Corporation quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
What the US evidently sought to impose by main force on Iraq was a state apparatus whose fundamental mission was to facilitate conditions for profitable capital accumulation on the part of both domestic and foreign capital. I call this kind of state apparatus a neoliberal state. The freedoms it embodies reflect the interests of private property owners, businesses, multinational corporations, and financial capital. Bremer invited the Iraqis, in short, to ride their horse of freedom straight into the neoliberal corral. ~ David Harvey
Multinational Corporation quotes by David Harvey
Western culture prefers us not to believe we're defined or limited. It wants us to buy the fiction that the self is open, free, nothing but pure, bright possibility; that we're all born with the same suite of potential abilities, as neural 'blank slates', as if all human brains come off the production line at Foxconn. This seduces us into accepting the cultural lie that says we can do anything we set our minds to, that we can be whoever we want to be. This false idea is of immense value to our neoliberal economy. The game it compels us to play can best be justified morally if all the contestants start out with an equal shot at winning. Moreover, if we believe we're all the same, this legitimizes calls for deregulated corporation and smaller government: it means that men and women who lose simply didn't want it badly enough, that they just didn't believe - in which case, why should anyone else catch their fall? ~ Will Storr
Multinational Corporation quotes by Will Storr
Virtually unable to attract new capital to the foundering enterprise, the company seized the next year on a novel approach to raising money to fund the embryonic British Empire: a lottery.
With the reluctant approval of King James and the Church of England, the Virginia Company sold lottery tickets to the public, discovering no shortage of gamers willing to hazard hard coinage for the chance to win the 01,000 grand prize, a fortune at a time when the typical working-class family scraped by on little more than a pound a month. Having begun as a corporation, Virginia had evolved into a gamblers' stake with a lively populist following back in England. ~ Bob Deans
Multinational Corporation quotes by Bob Deans
I desire a society which selects its rulers from the best elements of every class and denies the right of any class or corporation to usurp the government itself
whether it be the nobles, the clergy, the bourgeoisie, or the proletariat. For government by any class is fatal to the welfare of the whole, ~ Rafael Sabatini
Multinational Corporation quotes by Rafael Sabatini
Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power argues that if corporations have 'person hood' under the law, then it makes sense to question what kind of people they are. He posits that corporations behave with all the classical signs of sociopathy: they are inherently amoral, they elevate their own interests above all others', and they disregard moral and sometimes legal limits on their behavior in pursuit of their own advancement. Organizations of this type would thrive under the leadership of people who have the same traits: sociopaths. ~ M.E. Thomas
Multinational Corporation quotes by M.E. Thomas
Of course, the idea that a state, any more than a corporation, commits crimes, is a fiction. Crimes always are committed only by persons. While it is quite proper to employ the fiction of responsibility of a state or corporation for the purpose of imposing a collective liability, it is quite intolerable to let such a legalism become the basis of personal immunity. ~ Robert H. Jackson
Multinational Corporation quotes by Robert H. Jackson
A risk-taking environment starts at the top of a corporation. If the CEO doesn't have this spirit, chances are you won't find it anywhere else in the organization. ~ Mary Kay Ash
Multinational Corporation quotes by Mary Kay Ash
When you walk into a store and you want to buy something, you give them cash and they sell it to you. But very often, you walk into our "store" and you want something - a credit card, maybe, or a loan - and very often the answer is "No," even if you're a large corporation. ~ Jamie Dimon
Multinational Corporation quotes by Jamie Dimon
The blunt tools of legislation or union power can force a corporation to pay higher wages, but if employees don't create an equal amount of additional value, there's no net gain. ~ Charles Platt
Multinational Corporation quotes by Charles Platt
Orwell couldn't see that Big Brother would not be The State, but The Corporation. ~ Laurence Overmire
Multinational Corporation quotes by Laurence Overmire
The 'Occupy' movement seems to have found a central theme to its 2012 movement around overturning 'the corporation as a person,' and some legislators are supporting that concept. ~ John Battelle
Multinational Corporation quotes by John Battelle
A corporation, essentially, is a pile of money to which a number of persons have sold their moral allegiance. ~ Wendell Berry
Multinational Corporation quotes by Wendell Berry
In addition to billions in new 'stimulus' spending that our country can't afford, the Geithner plan also contains billions in tax increases on small and family-owned businesses while protecting the tax preferences of wealthy, multinational corporations. ~ Kevin McCarthy
Multinational Corporation quotes by Kevin McCarthy
The big lie of American capitalism is that corporations work in their own best interests. In fact they're constantly doing things that will eventually bring them to their knees. Most of these blunders involve toxic chemicals that any competent chemist should know to be dangerous. They pump these things into the environment and don't even try to protect themselves. The evidence is right there in public, almost as if they'd printed up signed confessions and sprinkled them out of aeroplanes. Sooner or later, someone shows up in a Zodiac and points to that evidence, and the result is devastation far worse than what a terrorist, a Boone, could manage with bombs and guns. All the old men within twenty miles who have come down with tumors become implacable enemies. All the women married to them, all the mothers of damaged children, and even those of undamaged ones. The politicians and the news media trample each other in their haste to pour hellfire down on that corporation. The transformation can happen overnight and it's easy to bring about. You just have to show up and point your finger. ~ Neal Stephenson
Multinational Corporation quotes by Neal Stephenson
Such competence is not necessarily acquired by means of the 'scholastic' labours in which some 'cinephiles' or 'jazz-freaks' indulge. Most often it results from the unintentional learning made possible by a disposition acquired through domestic or scholastic inculcation of legitimate culture. This transposable disposition, armed with a set of perceptual and evaluative schemes that are available for general application, inclines its owner towards other cultural experiences and enables him to perceive, classify and memorize them differently. . . . In identifying what is worthy of being seen and the right way to see it, they are aided by their whole social group and by the whole corporation of critics mandated by the group to produce legitimate classifications and the discourse necessarily accompanying any artistic enjoyment worthy of the name. ~ Pierre Bourdieu
Multinational Corporation quotes by Pierre Bourdieu
Corporation 2020 is an indispensable contribution to the global transformation of finance and corporations as humanity re-integrates centuries of knowledge and continues its inevitable transition from the first Industrial Era ... Pavan Sukhdev is a powerful standard-bearer leading us to the cleaner, knowledge-rich Green Economy globally, and this book provides a benchmark and guide to this better future for humanity. ~ Achim Steiner
Multinational Corporation quotes by Achim Steiner
Everything is going according to plan in this strategically fathomed notion of "country" where the population wholeheartedly believes in that fabled myth known as democracy. The corporations that profit from our endless war campaigns, who have a multifarious number of politicians at the top of their covert letterheads and on payroll always get what they pay for - a route to even more of our tax dollars. The status quo doesn't change with the election of any given politician, whether it be in the Senate, the Congress, or even the White House. This nation (i.e. notion) is, in and of itself, nothing but an ingeniously designed corporation that uses you and I to further perpetuate the myth of country, the myth of united, the myth of democracy, and the myth of patriotism. We have long passed the point where we the people sat on the tongue of this monstrosity. We now reside in the belly of the beast. ~ A.K. Kuykendall
Multinational Corporation quotes by A.K. Kuykendall
At News Corporation, we have a history of challenging media orthodoxies. ~ Rupert Murdoch
Multinational Corporation quotes by Rupert Murdoch
One aspect of modern life which has gone far to stifle men is the rapid growth of tremendous corporations. Enormous spiritual sacrifices are made in the transformation of shopkeepers into employees ... The disappearance of free enterprise has led to a submergence of the individual in the impersonal corporation in much the same manner as he has been submerged in the state in other lands. ~ William O. Douglas
Multinational Corporation quotes by William O. Douglas
Corporations are in love with the idea of the strategic plan. They need to pay to figure out where they are going. Yet there is no evidence that strategic planning works - we even seem to have evidence against it. A management scholar, William Starbuck, has published a few papers debunking the effectiveness of planning - it makes the corporation option-blind, as it gets locked into a non-opportunistic course of action. ~ Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Multinational Corporation quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Society has to be structured such that there are checks and balances, so that it can't be manipulated, for instance, for the profit of just some multinational company who's going to get rich on trying to legislate the environment. ~ Greg Graffin
Multinational Corporation quotes by Greg Graffin
Multinational corporations do control. They control the politicians. They control the media. They control the pattern of consumption, entertainment, thinking. They're destroying the planet and laying the foundation for violent outbursts and racial division. ~ Jerry Brown
Multinational Corporation quotes by Jerry Brown
Here was a corporation behaving like a monster though the individuals who owned its stock were human cultivated men. A corporation has no soul. ~ Margaret Case Harriman
Multinational Corporation quotes by Margaret Case Harriman
Multi-billion-dollar multinational corporations view the exploitation of the world's sick and dying as a sacred duty to their shareholders. ~ John Le Carre
Multinational Corporation quotes by John Le Carre
I have long argued that in the modern world, corporation tax has had its day as a major source of tax revenue. ~ Nigel Lawson
Multinational Corporation quotes by Nigel Lawson
Her crime cost nobody their life, but she famously was escorted off to a women's prison. Had she been a corporation instead of a human being, odds are there never would have even been an investigation. Yet over the past century - and particularly the past forty years - corporations have repeatedly asserted that they are, in fact, "persons" and therefore eligible for the human rights protections of the Bill of Rights. ~ Thom Hartmann
Multinational Corporation quotes by Thom Hartmann
I don't believe this. And I thought running a corporation was hard? This isn't a wedding; it's a fucking conspiracy planned by pompous, cutthroat lunatics. Worse, they're delusional enough to believe they're visionaries. Wedding planners who want to color-coordinate flowers and bathroom accoutrements? What the hell's a bathroom accoutrement, anyway - toilet paper? ~ Andrea Kane
Multinational Corporation quotes by Andrea Kane
Did you ever expect a corporation to have a conscience, when it has no soul to be damned, and nobody to be kicked? ~ Edward Thurlow, 1st Baron Thurlow
Multinational Corporation quotes by Edward Thurlow, 1st Baron Thurlow
There was one issue on which there seemed to be almost unanimity: the Internet should not be managed by any government, national or multinational. ~ Jon Postel
Multinational Corporation quotes by Jon Postel
I'm okay with multinational marriage, foreigners are also alright. Mixed blood babies are so pretty. ~ Leeteuk
Multinational Corporation quotes by Leeteuk
Lying there, I thought of my own culture, of the assembly of books in the library at Alexandria; of the deliberations of Darwin and Mendel in their respective gardens; of the architectural conception of the cathedral at Chartres; of Bach's cello suites, the philosophy of Schweitzer, the insights of Planck and Dirac. Have we come all this way, I wondered, only to be dismantled by our own technologies, to be betrayed by political connivance or the impersonal avarice of a corporation? ~ Barry Lopez
Multinational Corporation quotes by Barry Lopez
We would do much better as leaders in the Church to learn at the feet of the farmer rather than study with the CEO of a corporation. ~ Neil Cole
Multinational Corporation quotes by Neil Cole
The corporation is one of the great unheralded human inventions of destruction. It is a way to absolve from any personal liability a bunch of people. They form together in a massive ID and they do whatever they want. ~ Keith Olbermann
Multinational Corporation quotes by Keith Olbermann
Today, the biggest bottleneck to the growth of a corporation is availability of good talent. ~ N. R. Narayana Murthy
Multinational Corporation quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
I think that any artistic decision that is based on whether or not you are going to make money it is not really an artistic decision. It is a business decision. And there are a lot of things that I can do to earn a living and a lot of things that I have already done to earn a living which produce the amount of capital needed to do this project. I came here to spend money on an English orchestra and record my music, so I can take it home and I can listen to it. And... if somebody else likes that kind of stuff, I will make it available on a record so that they can hear it. That is my part of the public service of spending the money to make this event happen. No foundation grant, no government assistance, no corporation, no comittee. Just a crazy guy who spent the money to hire English musicians to do a concert at the Barbican and make an album for Barking Pumpkin Records. ~ Frank Zappa
Multinational Corporation quotes by Frank Zappa
One of hallmarks of a creative person is the ability to tolerate ambiguity, dissonance, inconsistency, things out of place. But one of the rules of a well-run corporation is that surprise is to be minimized. Yet if this rule were applied to the creative process, nothing worth reading would get written, nothing worth seeing would get painted, nothing worth living with and using would ever get designed. ~ Ralph Caplan
Multinational Corporation quotes by Ralph Caplan
I think people love each other a little more than they hate each other ... Love has a slim hold on the human corporation, like fifty-one per cent, but it's enough. ~ Peter De Vries
Multinational Corporation quotes by Peter De Vries
The angel we named God banned representations of himself, even the writing of his name, trying to halt the process of literalization - but in the end it became inevitable. The angel found himself at the head of a corporation, run by Young Turks who wouldn't respect the line management structure: They rewrote his memos to make the law more rigorous, more confined, more human. He got ousted in a boardroom coup and kicked upstairs. He hadn't realized the power of corporeality, that the minds of men would of necessity alter the mind of their God. Being a deity meant taking on a lot of your subjects' qualities - both profound and trivial. ~ Michael Marshall Smith
Multinational Corporation quotes by Michael Marshall Smith
Get a job and when you earn a little bit of money, then you can do more good. Then bringing your values doesn't mean you have to compromise yourself. You got to get over this idea that you can't work for a big corporation, or for big oil or bigger pharma, because actually, those are some of the great jobs are and you can do good there. ~ Dana Perino
Multinational Corporation quotes by Dana Perino
The first clock radio was patented in the early 1970s by Sony Corporation in Japan. Digital ~ Catherine O'Reilly
Multinational Corporation quotes by Catherine O'Reilly
New Maxi-Pad Pets. Accessories for your period.
Brought to you by The Corporation: In your homes and
in your pants. ~ Libba Bray
Multinational Corporation quotes by Libba Bray
The idea that each corporation can be a feudal monarchy and yet behave in its corporate action like a democratic citizen concerned for the world we live in is one of the great absurdities of our time - ~ Kim Stanley Robinson
