True, although corporations are indeed public companies and they have to look out for shareholders. But your point is that most companies are concerned with profit. The thing here is that for a company to be profitable in a free market society, they have to cater to their customers or risk losing them to competition (unless you are a monopoly). Capitalism.

This, I believe in along with some government regulation to keep the playing field fair for all businesses.
