Introduction

Corporate Personhood is the most significant legal term that nobody knows.

  • Every aspect of our economy and our democracy is impacted by the growing hegemony of corporations. Nothing in our society is as consequential to our lives and our ability as a free people to control the world we live in as is the doctrine of Corporate Personhood promulgated by the Supreme Court. And, you probably don't believe that this is true.... yet.

Definition of Corporate Personhood

In a U.S. historical context, the phrase 'Corporate Personhood' refers to the ongoing legal debate over the extent to which rights traditionally associated with natural persons should also be afforded to corporations.
