Ethical Corporatism Tagging System

To achieve healthy capitalism and to protect the people from corporate abuses and corruption a new universal system of labeling for all products and services must be designed and implemented globally. The ingredients of each product or service are composed from not only the physical components but more importantly from the processes involved in the final output.

All corporations and businesses in general must be held accountable and be observed by consumers, employees, the community, and the state departments. For this purpose a tagging system shall be put in place to measure and publicize on any product and any service on the performance of the production business for the total and each of at least the following issues:

People Before Profit

Executive pay
Excessive advertisement
Unfair advertisement
Labor welfare
Unions’ participation
Capital distribution
Political leverage
Environmental responsibility
Social contributions
Fair play
Equal opportunities
Financial transparency
