Zombie Corporations

With our production of The Revenants (by Scott T. Barsotti) coming up in April, we will be talking a lot about zombies here at BLOOD RADIO. We thought we would point out ahead of time that the zombies we're talking about are not the ones the economic policy wonks on the nightly news are speaking of.

It seems that the term "zombie corporation" has now caught on to describe "propped-up, government-subsidized, bailed-out firms that aren’t really functional." That quote is from a nice little piece in Reason by Todd Seavey.
