Taboo in the Boardroom

"This basic notion -- that it is ethical for businesses to uphold the free market and renounce the use of politics -- seems elementary, yet it is virtually impossible to overstate the degree to which the point is lost on, if not altogether taboo for, those who sit in corporate boardrooms, no less today than in 1980. Even lip service is rarely paid to the idea."
