Dawn Carpenter welcomes you to a new episode of More Than Money where she continues the conversation on corporate social responsibility started on Season 1, but this time focusing on the consumer perspective. Unfortunately, we live in a time when we take for granted that the products we consume  should be and are safe, but this has not always been the case. In this episode, Dawn engages in a deep conversation with Ralph Nader, the man that is known for doing more than any single person to advance our cry for the production of safe products and good responsible business practice. Listen to this episode, get inspired, and remember that we all have within us the power to change and make change.
