Top 10 Unethical Business Actions - Listverse

Top 10 Unethical Business Actions - Listverse | A2 Business | Scoop.it
This list was originally titled “Most Evil Corporations” but the author thought it would be best to keep the site’s neutral status and minimize the probability of this list being classified as slander. As long as there has been big-business there have been dubious and flat-out immoral actions taking place to preserve profit, market share and public image. This list cannot be ranked too effectively, as the extent and severity of the misdeeds cannot be measured but the items have been chosen because of their human and long-term cultural impact.
