Corporate Spokesperson: There has been much ado about the lack of global corporate responsibility, but most of the harm done was incidental: corporations were in the historically unprecedented position of having substantial wealth and reach without having any of the obligations of the traditional state. This will soon change, however, as more than 50 international corporations this year enjoyed sales in excess of the GDP of 60% of the world’s countries.
Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the spokesperson’s argument?
A. Enjoying financial resources equal to or greater than those of the traditional sovereign state does not necessarily entail an acceptance of the obligations traditionally accepted by such a state.
B. Corporate revenue and influence is expected to increase in the years to come.
C. Many corporations are among the world’s top employers.
D. Many corporations are among the world’s top polluters.
E. Most of the 50 corporations mentioned are expected to see significant decreases in sales as a result of a recent international recession.
