A state can be a public government if it’s nominally responsive to the concerns of the people, i.e., if it’s representative. A tyranny would be a private government. With these terms in place, Liz wants to describe companies as private governments, and hence we should use the scholarship of political science to evaluate them and try to make them more just, more accountable to the people whose lives they affect….” At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.
