Re: Ethics and Corruption
All good points.
I would say that there are company/organizations that do exist in the United States that are called "Think Tanks" that do exactly the kind of thing we're talking about. However, there have been plenty of statements in the news regarding the validity of their work because of the potential influence from their sponsors.
Government is often no better in this regard because of lobbyists, politicians, etc.
This whole thing just feels like a much bigger social problem than anything else.
