Abstract:     
In Citizens United, the United States Supreme Court held that, at least for many purposes, corporations are people too. This brief essay argues that principles of reciprocity, rooted in moral theory and social science, require, in exchange for the benefits the Court has granted, corporations to accept the burdens of criminal responsibility.
