Capital Reforms

Restructuring Capital Markets to Ensure National Security and Corporate Accountability

Executive Summary

This proposal aims to fundamentally restructure capital markets to address the inherent limitations and negative consequences of the profit-centric corporate model. By amending all corporate charters to include a morality clause, this Order seeks to mitigate the harmful effects of profit-driven behavior on national security, public welfare, and the environment.

Case Study: Boeing

Boeing, a major aerospace and defense contractor, has faced significant scrutiny due to its profit-driven decisions that compromised safety and quality. Over the years, Boeing's management engaged in aggressive cost-cutting measures, including outsourcing critical engineering functions and prioritizing shareholder returns over product integrity.

The consequences of these actions were starkly highlighted by the tragic crashes of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, resulting in the loss of 346 lives. Investigations revealed that safety concerns were overlooked, and crucial software flaws were not addressed adequately due to pressures to reduce costs and expedite production.

This case exemplifies the dangers of stripping a company bare for profit. The erosion of engineering expertise and quality control at Boeing not only damaged the company's reputation but also posed severe risks to public safety and national security, given Boeing's role in providing essential aerospace services to the U.S. government.
