    I would trust the policies of the Chamber to to advance the economy more than anything coming out of the Beltway.

    Corporatism is collectivist; it is a different version of collectivism than socialism but it is definitely collectivist. It places some importance on the fact that private property is not nationalized, but the control through regulation is just as real. It is de facto nationalization without being de jure nationalization.

    Although Corporatism is not a familiar concept to the general public, most of the economies of the world are corporatist in nature. The categories of socialist and pure market economy are virtually empty. There are only corporatist economies of various flavors.

    A significant difference is that I can opt out of “corporatism”.

    A significant difference is that I can opt out of “corporatism”. I think you should have mentioned that “corporatism” is not the same as corporations as we know them.

    Unfortunately one cannot opt out of Corporatism. Most people don’t understand that the CofC is NOT the same as their local Chamber. The CofC has opposed EVERY progressive action to improve the pay and lives of workers.

    Just try to “opt out”. And you don’t get to vote either.

    The C of C and the Retail Merchants Association are shills for Big Business. As an independent optometrist, I have seen how they have advocated for corporate optometry (i.e. LensCrafters/Pearle/Sears Optical/BJ’s Optical/JCPenney Optical/Target Optical….all owned and operated by Luxottica) contact lens/eyeglasses bought online, and of course insurance companies (pimps). They tell me small busines is the backbone of the economy (heard that one before?), and then lobby to put us out of business. That is their right, and I am not bitter, but I recognize the truth for what it is.
    Not that it matters: check out the people complaining about jobs going to China with their arms full of bags from WalMart.

    There is only one difference between communism and cpitalism/corporatism. In the former, the state controls all business; in the latter business controls the state. In both systems, the average person gets treated like crap. An American CEO is no different than a Soviet Premier – both want absolute power and don’t give a dam about anyone who doesn’t let them.
