    Whenever there are people there is government of some sort, whether or not there are corporations. Corporations are creations of the government, not the other way around. In the first years of this country there were only farmers and small businesses, corporations were created for specific projects and did not live forever. You may worship them as benevolent societies and the providers of all that is good,
    I do not.

    The free market is not the solution, the free market is the problem.

      You're being hung up on my use of the word "corporation". Maybe I should substitute "wealth generating entity". A farmer, machinist, all count.

      What matters is that your export business is everything. That's what runs your town, keeps the lights on, food on the table, local government and schools running, etc.

      Whether it's a big corporation or a farm (or farm collective), or a mine or what have you, it's the stuff that you export that matters. No export means no town.
