How the Social Venture Network changed business in AmericaBen Cohen, of Ben & Jerry’s renown, is asking me for money, and he’s not selling ice cream.

“Corporations are not people, and money is not free speech,” Cohen declares.

The 61-year-old ice-cream mogul sold Ben & Jerry’s to Unilever in 2000. The T-shirt says: “Stamp Money Out of Politics.” These days,  as “Head Stamper” at StampStampede, Cohen is working for an amendment to the US Constitution to get money out of politics.
