BP's president didn't slip up calling Gulf Coast residents "small people." That's how corporatists see working class people, which is why risks are taken.

Isn't that attitude, that economic populism, very much the same way the Tea Party folks view the Obama Administration, but more from a sense of educational or class populism?

Not all corporations behave that way and even within corporations there is seldom a true 'culture of corruption'. BP is an enormous company and I seriously doubt every decision maker uses terms like 'small people'.
