The actions of the large corporations
These actions are the primary factor
that defines peoples future in a purely capitalistic system
. The ordinary people
within this system don't elect those who decide what’s done.
Big Business usually keeps many goods cheap for us in the western world
by screwing over
counties in the third world
and/or cutting corners thus hurting peoples health and/or trashing
. Big Business also often decides to make goods expensive even though they are usually still doing more of the same. When Nike
trainers and Gucci
woolen hand bags are priced at $100 nothing tangible is affecting the price only shallowness
Sometimes, when their public image
is suffering too greatly and shares drop as a result, conductors of big business need to do, or pretend to do, things that can be considered ethical
to boost their image. On occasion the law can also make them do this, however crack teams of lawyers
and hefty bribes handed to politicians
in the media
usually prevent this, it can be said big business practically owns the areas these dudes work in.
Big business can lead to great advances being released that revolutionize our lives but it can also suppress such great advances if no profits
can be made from them.
If you are a person who has ever wondered why things are so shit
or a rarer person who wonders why things are so awesome
, big business is the answer.
Steve: Wow Coke fucked over
that country pretty badly, privatizing
their water supply. Poor bastards
have to pay more for it than we do.
Andy: Yeah well, that's big business for you.
Santa: They probably invented these advanced phones donkeys
ago. But to maximize profits, they have to release them in increments, wasting resources and other peoples money. It's just like those multi-bladed razors, Gillette make, they kept adding more rather than just starting with 5. Ahhh... Big Business...
