self test A on the above           self test B on the above        


Large corporations are superior to small business, with limited liability, greater ability to get capital, exploit natural advantages, enjoy economies of scale, lobby and shape government policy. Those that have grown by consolidating with rivals may face little competition. I'm awed as they harness production forces, satisfy consumers, and create wealth. (Note: optimists see corporate  leaders increasingly putting stake-holders (workers, the community, the environment, etc.) above short-term profits for share-holders. Pessimists fear corporate greed, unethical use of power, self-serving disinformation, and environmental recklessness.)


I believe in reining in corporate power and concentrating economic controls / planning in the hands of a highly centralized government (statism).  I prefer government that: 1) takes responsibility to ensure that everyone is looked out for by providing extensive social services; 2) assures environmental quality, workplace safety / societal stability through appropriate regulations; 3) maximizes spending to promote peaceful social harmony, and minimizes military spending; (Note: while social welfare states heavily tax private property, they donít challenge its sanctity as socialism does.)
