Small business has no problem competing, in spite of unfair
competition against the full weight of an intrustive government.
Large institutions greatest virtue is their collective stupidity.
What you are defending is called crony capitalsim, a crooked interconnection
of government, big business, and academia. Such a system is
bureaucrat run so does not allocate resources to where they can do
the most good. Hence I advocate a more "perfect capitalism" predicated
upon no holds barred free markets,
WITHOUT GOVERNMENT MANIPULATION.
What you are defending is immoral and socially unstable, whether
pursued in the old Soviet system or in Indonesia, which last I heard,
has it's capital of Jakarta in flames.
