Ross - it doesn't help when you turn around and present another false dichotomy.

It's quite possible that Joe *does* understand corporate budgets and politics,
and *still* thinks that business decisions are antisocial.  In fact, one can
fairly easily argue that *many* of our current socio-economic issues are due
to the fact that corporate decisions are in general required to be in the
stockholder's interests, not society's.  In other words, they are in general
*by definition* anti-social.

So the correct phrasing is "How do we change the anti-social behavior into
something less anti-social which still pleases the stockholders?"
