I'm very fond of Starbucks in this regard, although I admit one could probably dig deep enough into the past of ANY person or company, successful or unsuccessful, and find SOME sort of dirt.

I dunno. It depends on how broadly we're defining things. For any successful company, you could find something that they do that arguably meets one of these. For instance, one of the first companies I thought of was Ben & Jerry's, but they use corn

syrup and some other chemically created products in their ice cream. Is that a "substitute"? I don't know.

In my personal opinion anything chemically created to substitute natural products is pretty unknown to modern effects. That may be paranoia but I'm sure most people wouldn't consider corn syrup bad. There's commercials for and against it.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I think the point is whether they label ingredients truthfully or not, not what they are.

A lot of vicious magnates like Andrew Carnegie, known for having workers beaten & shot, later tried to redeem their reputations by giving part of their fortunes to charity. That's what's remembered: their generosity with $ gained through brutality

Well unfortunately, Jim Beam was bought out by a company which is a subsidiary of a Japanese Company.

Roy Rogers, Hobby Hut, Planned Parenthood.

Rotavele Alabama
11/03/14 1:45 pm

Roy Rogers isn't worth 200 million dollars.

They've been around since 1968 and have only 20 stores?

"HAHA! they must actually use real beef!" - Every other fast food chain who is making billions today and founded long afterwards.

Hobby Hut is so small they don't have a wiki page and when I googled them it literally gave me some locations instead of any corporate page.

They must actually be moral, and that is why they're not big business. Sadly.

Oh good gracious no. Their "Kirkland Signature" brand is like any other brand "equate", "great value", etc. They have it cheaper for a reason. ;) it's practically like "You're already buying screwed up substitutes, let us make it cheaper for you".

Anyone as good as their CEO is hiding a dark secret....you wait, your gonna find out Bob Costco is secretly harvesting organs from children to be sold on the Black Market.

But I'd say Costco is better than most screwed up places, so that was a really good suggestion.

This poll was inspired by my other poll about the word "trick" to become a rich man in America. I want to know the men who haven't "tricked" people for profit and their names because I'd love to give these men some free advertisement albeit small.

The sad thing is 200 "million" is small for a "big business". The S&P 500's smallest company is worth at least a billion dollars. There's thousands of corporations worth more than 200 million dollars. I personally think they're all crooked sadly. :(

11/03/14 1:27 pm

Yea 200 million is a drop in the bucket nowadays. It really is sad the extent at which big business rips off consumers. The worst part is that a lot of it is completely legal thanks to the deregulation that's been going on since the 80s.

Entertainment and software companies have their fair share of unethical business practices anyway. Lot of labor issues and often anti-competitive stuff too.
