I really hope the American people wake up to this fact, because these false "open markets' which are completely rigged and getting worse due increasing corporate control of our government are destroying this country. As well as the people who blindly support it.
If you remove regulations and allow corporations to do whatever they want to make a profit, it will not result in economic growth for the country, it will result in increased centralization of wealth and increasing the gap between the rich and the poor.
It's not so much the removal of regulations that's the problem, but allowing the most powerful corporations to WRITE the regulations and laws, allowing them to take full legal advantage over any and all competition while sending their own retired executives to enforce the regulations they helped write.
This isn't capitalism. No true competition can exist in this situation.
