How Capitalism Holds on: Left-Wing Thoughts on the Business Round Table, and more

This article is written by an American about America but much applies elsewhere. We also have an influential Business Roundtable and compliant media.

"Since the 1980s, the Business Roundtable has run roughshod over American workers by using the federal government to:
  • Reduce consumer protections,
  • Obstruct employment stimuli,
  • Weaken unions,
  • Implement "free trade" agreements that spur offshoring and tax havens,
  • Ease environmental protections,
  • Increase corporate subsidies,
  • Loosen rules on corporate mergers and acquisitions,
  • Open avenues of profit in the private healthcare system,
  • Privatize education and social programs,
  • .... and block efforts to make corporate boards more accountable.
