v· political culture, in which members believe the basic unit of society and the primary concern of the state is the corporate group rather than the individual, and that the interests of the corporate group are the same as the interest of the nation.
Corporations should work mainly for the national good, rather than the good of their owners
Corporations should be protected from foreign ownership
State should deal with corporations rather than individuals
"Corporate Nationalism" may be used to describe a political philosophy and economic theory whose adherents are corporatists and believe that the basic unit of the society, be it the family or other corporate groups, has the same interests as the nation. Some therefore believe that the state should deal primarily with "corporations", which may include companies, worker's cooperatives, unions and so on, and allow these units to organize themselves to serve their members as they feel fit.
Corporations should work mainly for the national good
A related use of the term "Corporate nationalism" is to describe a philosophy that private enterprise should work mainly for the national good rather than for the good of the investors. In exchange, legislators will favor large corporations and involve them in drafting legislation. The Christian Falangist Party of America espouses this view. They do not reject the right of investors to make profit, but believe they do not have the right to take actions such as moving factories to other countries and thus endangering American workers. Also in the USA, the left-wing New Alliance Party is said to have described Zionism as "Jewish corporate nationalism", although the exact meaning of this presumed slur is not clear.
National corporations should be protected from foreign ownership
In Britain, the presidents of Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems, the largest aerospace and defence firms, are reserved for British citizens. Norway has a history of successful state campaigns to block foreign companies from taking over major Norwegian firms. In 2005, PepsiCo was rumored to be planning a bid to take over French food group Danone, arousing popular outcry. A former boss of Danone said. "Danone is like Chartres cathedral, and one does not buy the cathedral of Chartres."
Corporations should (may) be nationalized
The phrase may be used to describe national intervention in corporations, including outright nationalization where the state assumes ownership of the corporation. Some see recent US government interventions in the Financial industry, including the effective nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are seen as a form of corporate nationalism.
The state is biased towards corporate interests
Some libertarians in the USA consider that the end of slavery coincided with the start of a regime "tainted" by aggressive corporate nationalism, or government intervention into the economy. In this view, the destruction of chattel slavery preserved and perpetuated "bourgeois" slavery.
