are all corporations good?

ok, a few weeks ago i posted a question called "how much do you remember from the 90's" or something like that i cant remember, anyway the point is not everything from the 90's was a good thing. Every year, the major business magazines put out their annual surveys of big business in America. You have the Fortune 500, the Forbes 400, the Forbes Platinum 100, the International 800 -- among others. These lists rank big corporations by sales, assets, profits and market share. The point of these surveys is simple -- to identify and glorify the biggest and most profitable corporations. The point of the list contained in this report, The Top 100 Corporate Criminals of the Decade -- is to focus public attention on a wave of corporate criminality that has swamped prosecutors offices around the country. This is the dark underside of the marketplace that is given little sustained attention and analysis by politicians and news outlets.To compile The Top 100 Corporate Criminals of the 1990's
