    american s don't know who owns their company, and it's easy to see why when there are so many under one umbrella.

      hard to know who owns the company you work for but these days it's hard to know who owns the companies that provide the utilities, services and goods you buy. Qwest my phone/DSL provider for years here in OR. was eaten by a St. Paul company called Century Link. Our electric company PGE is owned by a Scottish corporation. We had Enron which screwed the state out of 3 mil.$ that was never paid back. My old dicey mortgage was at one point bundled and sold to Countrywide. When we refinanced through our credit union it was amazing to see who had owned and sold and handled our loan over the years.

      I guess this is the invisible hand of the market at work. An ownership society that buys and sells without regard for the people who work for these corporations to them labor is a profit loss. As for this market being free how come the customers of what used to be public have absolutely no choice.

      To make matters worse the owners of the place have turned their greedy privatizing eyes on our schools, our 'entitlements', health care,  prisons, water, energy  all the basic necessities that a society needs and people use. Such a giant disconnect from the wealth creating Market to both workers and consumers and the well being of our society at large. These giant to big to fail multinational entities are not in our national  interest and workers globally are nothing but a profit loss.
