380. market, corporations and the attractions to bigness.

April 5, 2010 § Leave a comment

People who criticize market forces I think are missing that it is corporations using markets through control that cause economic difficulties. The reason, I speculate is because they tend to be progressives who really like large scale organizational interventions, because their careers are there,  and being critical of markets appears to take head on the economic difficulties of our time, but really misses that it is self-serving large corporations that are the real source (not in isolation of course, they need markets to operate in) of economic exploitation nd inequality and the purchase of governments.

Just as Burkean conservatives are lost in the right wing rhetoric, and so unheard, progressives who are also democratic and inclined to smaller scale go unheard.

see my The use of religious affiliation – a way of saying “No”? for an older but still relevant analysis.
