    The recent,expanding ability of the wealthy corporate sector to purchase control of government at national and local levels has tipped the economic scales in their favor.

    They buy tax cuts and credits, non-compete contracts and immunity from prosecution for laborious and safety abuse, They've bought immunity from predatory practices and outright theft from consumers and government. All of those things tip the economic scales heavily in their favor.
