I think there should be limits on the size of companies to limit their power and influence. In theory, more people should mean more demand, and the potential for more business (jobs) to meet that demand. But in today's world it really just means that the existing top dogs squatting in their respective markets/offering goods and services will do it at a 25% faster rate (grease the machines and speed them up a bit -- let them run a little longer), and make more money, and have more power and influence, while 100 million people fight instead for a handful of jobs.
