Just a correlation I made... I find it rather ironic that you and Learner are implying that the idea of capitalism (i.e.: the lack of input and interference from the government) when concerning business is "inherently wrong" while it has often been said (especially by Learner) that lack of input and interference from the government regarding society would work (which IMHO would be replaced rather quickly by organized crime, just like the power of the government regarding the economy has been replaced by big businesses).

In the end, there are those with power and those without. It doesn't matter how you get there.

I rather like you last line. But yes there are those with power and those without. We still have government interference in our econmy however. Look at ma-bell break up.

The Fed-gov bought 5 T-1's from MCI way back when. It just so happenes the man who started MCI left the Fed. lol. This 5 T-1's gave them start up capital, and enough to launch a law suit against the Monolpoly Ma-bell.

Flash forward, Airline bail outs. Flash forward, even more Dupont...

There are many instances of big companies helped by the fed for one reason or another. So there is interference.

As far as Google goes, I do not think you grasp the "Amount" of power they curently wield and grow daily. How many companies they can criple now with a press release if they desire.

Capitalism has NOTHING to do with that. That is the difference between a free economy (US), a mixed economy (Canada) or a controlled economy (China).

I also implied nothing. I said all I meant to say: Capitalism begets greed.

Capitalism begets greed

:nods:

It is how it is set up. Big fish eats little fish. At the end of the day it is how much money your company makes vs the other guy. If you study econmoy and get into the insa and outs of what makes it work, you will find it is turely a greed driven system.

Want an example? Pick up Forbes magazine and look at the most sucessful companies. Read up on the to 100, top 500, 400 richest people in the world.

By capitalistic standardas these are sucess stories. It all comes down to money. Stock companies are driven by money. It is the reason people invest in compaines. Sure there are those who invest to help a company for a cause they belive in. The vast majority.... Take a trip to wall street sometime and watch the human pool of greed.
