You guys will all likely find the new documentary "The Corporation" (to be released by Zeitgeist) interesting and/or controversial. Saw it at Sundance. Enjoyed it quite a bit.

Corporations have been an engine of growth for this country since their inception, and throughout their evolution. The earliest corporations were somewhat different than what we're used to thinking of today. I do feel that the corporation as an entity has acquired too many privileges, and that any abuse by anyone running a corporation is too much.

The problem of growth is, I think, an issue. It's not just greed causing fraud and resulting in the outsourcing of jobs to other countries, it's also because the economy has become so addicted to rapid growth and improved quarterly results that there's too much pressure on corporate executives to produce results at any cost.

I wonder what will happen when we run out of markets to exploit.

Not everyone involved with the production is a Canuck, but the financing pretty much all came out of Canada, yup.
