Your contradictions are crashing into each other here. It's wrong for government to bail out a business, regardless of whether it's in the public interest or not, but its ok for government to actively work against businesses that have built their own market through competition because its "more fair." Government shouldn't prop up corporations, it should prop up the little guys. Am I reading that right? If businesses have access to the internet, they have the means to create their own digital markets. We build a road from point A to point B. Then Walmart says, wow, look at all that traffic. Let's build a Superstore. And Flo and the girls say, "hey, I think it's time we quit our jobs and open that beauty salon we've always wanted to have. There's a vacant storefront right next to that Walmart being built off the expressway." In essence, we've cut the river into the land (roads and infrastructure) and savvy people identified the opportunity and built ships to navigating the channel. Other people hired those ships to move their goods, etc, etc. Sorta like the way the internet works. What you are suggesting is that not only do we need to build the road with public funds, but we should also construct the superstore too. I am definitely no captain of industry so when it comes to making mountains of money, I'm pretty blind to the next great idea in commerce. But I gotta say, I'm not really feeling the Bern here. But hey, have fun storming the castle. Pack a sweater.
