BIG MISTAKE


Why should this be any surprise? The purpose of ANY corporation is to make money for the stockholders. If you don't like that then try communism and see where that gets you.
If Exxon had priorities other than making money for the shareholders then it would have gone bankrupt a long time ago. It is a damn successful and well-run company--in fact it is the biggest corporation in the world.
Should corporations have limits placed on how they do business to protect citizens and employees from abuse? Absolutely. Just make sure that Exxon does things in manner prescribed by law (and if they are allowed to get away with such things in Ghana then whose fault is it, really?
