I think there are too many conflicting groups in power. There must be a constant power struggle behind the scenes for the top position.

I'm trying to connect dots here.. rickymouse said a few posts after yours that "the big businesses have little ties to an area they do not live in" (so they might leave any day). I rather not disagree with that as there probably are atleast few examples of such, but what I would find quite hard to grasp, is, the concept of "having direct control over the corporations" (e.g. the top level corporations, who own or have strong ties to smaller companies).

I mean.. it takes a long time to grow "a big company/corporation" and it is quite hard to control anything that could be described as been "massive" in size. It is even harder to align the operations of multiple big corporations to act in concert, if they are "separate species" -- which they are, if they were just recently added to portfolio of, let's say, Goldman Sachs Group Inc or Merrill Lynch & Co Inc. The article goes to mention that "Most company shares are held by fund managers who may or may not control what the companies they part-own actually do. The impact of this on the system's behaviour, he says, requires more analysis."

So, basically some "top level" person (or persons) could squeeze out some extra money from corporations and by doing that hurt some citizens somewhere, but having direct control over the corporations..? I'd say that it becomes much more complex concept, when one thinks about it with more thought.

This article describes Corporatism, which is the road to fascism. Capitalism and Corporatism are similar like ants and elephants are similar. They're both animals, and they both have legs. The similarities end there.


I'm sorry, but when I hear that Capitalism and corporations isn't the same thing I hear the propaganda apparatus at work. So I think, anyways. (And I don't think I'm alone.)
Could you show how greed is or isn't capitalism and greed is or isn't Corporatism?
Maybe start a new thread (if there isn't one already) explaining the difference?
Really think greed is WAY more destructive than good.
