Shaping Society Through Corporate America – An Interview with Justin Danhof – Episode 455

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark welcomes back Justin Danhof. Justin is the General Counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research, as well as Director of the Center’s Free Enterprise Project.

Chuck and Mark kick off by asking Justin about the power that large corporations now have. Justin explains how they have obtained the ability to change culture and how agendas can be implemented through shareholder activism.

They discuss how the large corporations’ leadership acts more as politicians than entrepreneurs. Justin explains why liberal employees are often able to express their view more openly than their conservative coworkers.

They finish up by discussing how many large corporations are more concerned about a political agenda than profits. Justin explains why shareholder activism is very important for other viewpoints to be heard by large corporations. They also explain why large corporations can get away with ignoring the views of those on the right.
