    The bigger they are the more problematic they become. Apple is a huge tax dodger. Boeing depends more on military industrial welfare funding than anyone cares to admit. Walmart has destroyed local businesses and economies, and a main contributor to a rush to the lowest possible pay rate in retail and manufacturing, all the while the Walton family remains the richest people in America. Google, we'll see - they can only claim to be "not evil" for so long.

  • I often wonder how conservatives feel about mega corporations since they are not job creators. Populists are more likely to not like Wall Street while elites adore them.

    most are anti-social and must be socialized by the people for the people.

    The government’s push to hold Wall Street firms accountable for helping to trigger the 2008 financial crisis :

    .

    “US authorities have penalized the three biggest U.S. banks –

    .

    JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Citigroup,

    .

    -- more than $37 billion

    .

    in the form of cash and consumer relief.

    .

    Now Goldman Sachs has agreed to pay abt $5.1 billion in the case.

    “…the government said the banks misrepresented to investors the quality of mortgage loans they securitized into risky bonds.”

    8 years before the Madoff fraud was revealed,

    but the government agency “never actually conducted a Ponzi scheme examination or investigation of Madoff,”

    I think they need to be watched closely and subject to anti-trust laws.
