No, slaves are not that good for business. Even if you dont pay salary, they cost money. As they have no economic incentive to work, the only way they can gain something is by doing less. So, with no positive feedback, you have to resort to negative feedback. Slavery might work if all you need is physical force (and use physical force to get it), but definitely not in a modern R&D based corporation.
