The right to privacy(For us, not you)

Two recent items:

1. "Corporations pushing for job-creation tax breaks shield U.S.-vs.-abroad hiring data"

referencing this, from the Washington Post:

The latest data show that multinationals cut 2.9 million jobs in the United States and added 2.4 million overseas between 2000 and 2009.

Which reminded me of this from Jodi Dean from earlier this summer, also referencing a WaPo article:

2. JD:"Business group: Public companies shouldn’t have to compare CEO and worker pay"

Now a group backed by 81 major companies — including McDonald’s, Lowe’s, General Dynamics, American Airlines, IBM and General Mills — is lobbying against new rules that would force disclosure of that comparison.

I suspect a much longer post with many more examples is possible with the title above.
