Adam Winkler, a professor of constitutional law at the UCLA School of Law, joins us to discuss his new book "We the Corporations: How American Businesses Won Their Civil Rights." What exactly is a corporation? The corporations seizing of their first rates as 1809, and how corportions are extensions of property rights. How "Corporate Personhood has become problematic. How corporations shed their public obligations and piggybacked on the 14th amendment to give corporations more rights. How the Supreme Court has been consistently pro-corporate whether it leaned liberal or conservative. The counter-intuitive role of Ralph Nader in expanding corporate rights. Citizen's United and the "money=speech" equation.
