That is a state of equilibrium. A market failure occurs when equilibrium is disturbed. In Enron’s case, those who were a part of the scandal had greed and desires that their salaries couldn’t satisfy. Their personal interest urged them to take what is not theirs, which is not only illegal but it creates a resource deficit as well. Enron, being a big and influential company, has a great impact in society; therefore, when it fails, it creates a chain reaction that affects other businesses, investors, and the general public.
People are tired of having their own futures and the futures of their children put at risk by the insane scramble for power among those who hold the reins of the various governments all over the planet. People are fearsome at seeing the environment put at extreme risk by corporate greed in partnership with government. Among the most important of these revolts has been one against established religions, and particularly the Judeo-Christian Religion of the West. It is that aspect of the planet-wide revolt that is the primary subject of this essay. Human beings being what they are, and possessing a really strong "urge-to-religion" or "urge -to-believe", and an even stronger "urge to have someone else be responsible for them", much of this revolt against religion, is itself in the form of a religious phenomenon.
The multinational corporations, Wal-Mart, Nike, and Gap, had negative impact on the world through human rights violations, through their control of the media, and by putting smaller local companies out of business. Corporations are often major violators of human rights. "As human rights advocates begin to address corporate crime, they often do so in the absence of any serious government support. As a result, they are tempted to fall back on voluntary codes of conduct adopted by the corporations themselves. At best, this self-monitoring represents "enlightened self-interest" by companies looking for a stable investment climate.

They were the people who wanted change and ultimately they won with the start of progressivism. Ida Tarbell, Upton Sinclair, and Henry Lloyd all made significant contributions to the start of the Progressive movement with their writings.
Brought by large corporations, they are intended to brainwash the individual and turn him/her into a loyal brainless consumer of the product that is offered. Fake promotions, grand openings and other tricks are designed specifically for these who refuse to become believers right away. For example, how many times one can hear a promotion slogans like “Free set of floor mats with every new car purchase!” or “Free mouse pad with every new computer purchase!”, etc. In my opinion, this is a clear indication of companies seeing nothing but a crowd of morons in their consumers. Jack, the main character of “Shopping”, finds himself in a store and interprets the echoing din as “of the extinction of a species of beast.” In other words, the shopping environment is like a variety of traps set by some beast ready to hunt you down.

All paid for by excessive spending by consumers and the government. My proposal to resolve the ‘foreclosure crisis’ rests in the meaning of this word. The time has come to sterilize many things, especially money. Too much money has gotten us into this mess and adding more simply makes it worse. Many critics, such as Jim Rogers of the famous Quantum Fund, are very outspoken about this.
