i understand some of the logic behind that assertion — that corporations are operated by and dependent on people, as well as the fact that corporations have the power to create wealth and share it among the people — but the fact remains that so many major corporations serve only a select few, while underlings are made to suffer [as the Washington Post article below suggests].  to quote The Wall Street Journal, “The problem with Romney’s claim [he’s the guy who said it first], however, is that far too many American corporations aren’t redistributing their wealth.  Instead, they’re hoarding it…Romney’s mistake isn’t in thinking that companies are humans. It’s in overestimating their humanity.”
