Corporatist Lobbying Replaced A Free Market

by James Hall, The Sleuth Journal:

The practice of a pure free market is so rare that a plausible argument can be made that a free market economy never existed. However, as the saying goes, Once Upon A Time, economic commerce did reflect a voluntary basis for business transactions. The fortunes of trade rested upon the mutual benefit of all parties, since repeated satisfaction built sustaining economies. Competition was the norm and the quality of goods and services developed that propelled expanding growth and prosperity for the largest numbers of participating producers and consumers. In the corporatist economic model, the goal is to create and protect monopolies, while stamping out any enterprises that challenge the Plutocrat system.

Corporate economies are dependent upon connection and favoritism by government policy. The essay, Corporatism Is Not the Free Market states a fundamental point. “Too many people are willing to accept government-set goals (such as energy independence) so long as the “private sector” is induced to achieve them. Regardless of how the goals are achieved, if government sets them, that’s statism.”

    Carlyle Group Homeland Security Franchise Adds Palantir Tech Advisor

    Monument Capital Group Holding’s advisory board reads like a Carlyle Group legends list. It includes James A. Baker, III, Frank Carlucci, Thomas F. “Mac” McClarty, III and Mustafa V. Koç. Monument Capital added a new Senior Advisor from Palantir Technology, the group that ensures Davos and Bilderberg attendees are kept safe and sound from mere common folk.

    Michael Leiter is Head of Global Government, Cyber Operations and Senior Counselor to the CEO of Palantir Technologies. From 2007 to 2011 he was Director of the United States National Counterterrorism Centre. Mr Leiter has joined MCGH as a Senior Advisor. He will work the MCGH team to provide analysis of the changing global cyber security space and help to inform the firms’ target market and acquisition strategy.

    PEU’s go where the money is, hire ex-government insiders to steer strategy and acquisition of government contracts. Monument Capital wants to make big money off spying. A younger Thomas Jefferson would be appalled, the older version, not so much.
