Easy, simply stop treating corporations as 'persons' under the law, and end
much corporate liability protection (while at the same time reforming the tort
process to prevent humongous punitive awards like $175 million to two former
Texaco employees, or $6 million to a granny who spilled coffee on her lap.) If
the individuals in a corporation were severally liable for the actions they
take in the conduct of their business, then they might start acting a lot more
nicely. At the same time, I'd also stop taxing both the corporation AND its
stockholders and employees. Have one tax (having it at the corporate level
would of course be the easiest and cheapest to administer).
