Creating monopolies is in human nature, controlling as much resources and stopping the competition. Its when the monopolies take advantage of
consumers who depend on their services with over priced items when it is not right.
Economist try to bring in various theories to explain human behavior but honestly you cant put humans into a math equation and turn us into a
powerpoint presentation with graphs to predict the future with complete accuracy, we aren't robots.
For those who don't see the parallels of the "Mafia" and Capitalism. In my eyes i see it as this.
Capitalism is the breeding ground for organized crime.
Organized crime is the act of "Criminals" creating front companies for monetary profit and also to hide illegal activity.
Capitalism can be defined as privately held businesses that is in the business of creating profit for all investors and shareholders.
To tie this all together, both corporate entities and organized crime organization are both affected by policy, monetary systems, the market,. The
mafia just uses underground means to accomplish it goals while corporate businesses bend laws and policies to their favor the legal way.
