Question 1: Explain how both the legislative and the judicial branches of the U.S. government support the corporate community and the power elite. What, if anything, tempers this support? Two decisions by the Supreme Court over the last few years would be very interesting to look at as examples for this question: Citizens United vs. The Federal Election Commission, and McCutcheon vs. The Federal Election Commission. These examples are not required, but you might like to look at them in relation to this question.
Question 2: Review the New York Times from this week; can you identify at least one business corruption scandal? Briefly describe the situation and then explain how stronger governmental regulation might prevent such occurrences in the future. You might also explain how such business practices hurt the common good.
