Edwards Unveils Corporate Reforms

Presidential hopeful John Edwards will hold community meetings Saturday in Iowa, while his wife, Elizabeth, campaigns in New Hampshire.

While in Des Moines on Friday, Edwards proposed limits on executive compensation packages and requirements that big businesses operate more openly.

The North Carolina Democrat says his corporate responsibility plan also would restore retirement security for the middle class through tax reforms and savings help.

Edwards says his plan would protect consumers from abusive financial products, such as high-cost mortgages, and require employers to offer savings plans for workers who can't access pensions.
