I am by no means a economic expert but I was thinking the other day what would happen if we limited corporate size? I know this will truly never happen but what economic implications would there be?
We have a estate tax to prevent individuals from becoming to wealthy but nothing really regulates corporation except the fact they can't have a monoply. When corporations get to big apparently they can't fail or the US economy will fail as we seen with automotive manufactuers and banks. So what happens if we limit the size by say number of employees, marketshare, or some other limiting factor? I'm all about free market but when is company getting more than it's fair share?
I can see a few postive things coming out of it.
Less sway in government policy.
More middle class jobs.
More competition equals lower prices.
More product selection.
Bored at work thought I'd share my thoughts.
