Comments: Politics and the Press

As a dyed in the wool capitalist I would like to make a point that is often over looked: corporations are a violation, by design, of the basic rules of capitalism.

A corporation is designed to reduce risk, while risk is the major governor of the capitalist system. It is risk that justifies profit. If the risk is limited, so should the profit.

Real capitalists, like small business owners, are at a decided disadvantage trying to compete against all of the special privileges granted to corporations.

You're quite right, of course. I tend to confuse "pure" capitalism with the corporate structure so pervasive here in the USofA.
