Monopolisation of big business is endemic to the capitalist system. Big business has become wealthier and more powerful today than ever before.The revolving doors between government and industry has ensured the continued domination of big business over parliament and state. Capitalist economists constantly argue that privately run industry driven by pursuit of profit is the best way for an economy to function. But, even a cursory look at the world around us tells a very different story. Far from being efficient, capitalism is riddled with contradictions and crisis. You could write multiple volumes, as Karl Marx did, on the inadequacies of capitalism, but here, in this limited space, we shall deal with just a few.
