America isnt corporatist, china is. America was laissez faire only in the frontier when it had one. What we have now isnt a clear cut system we can put into an ideological box. Its a parasite class that more or less dictate the law through legal corruption (lobbying). Corporatism would actually be an improvement, it isnt corporation running the show as much as it is like the medieval guild system, most people cant see past the name. Corporatism is great to keep the business interest inline with the country's interest, which is far better than the opposite in the long run. In corporatist china, billionaires get $whackd if they step out of line, In america, it would be a politician who actually did his job
Though it is fair to ask just how do you prevent a capitalist society from degenerating into corporatism?
If by corporatism you mean crony capitalism, well you dont its the "iron law of oligarchy" proven right once again. If money is the primary thing the system value, its only logical those with money will eventually have all the power. As much as I would love a true laissez faire system, like everything lolberts espouse, it wont work because they always seem to forget life isnt a perfectly sterile petri dish of pure data free of outside forces that wont take advantage of this system

Exactly. Look how many times Bernie Sanders has been wacked.

I cant see how people think if bernie ever got power, he'd be able to stand to the bankers. The video of him letting BLM sheboons steal his mic and push him aside is exactly how it would go at best. The guy is just another wet noodle socialist that never got over the scandinavian model

After the show he put on in 2016 he bought himself a third house and his wife's multi-million-dollar criminal fraud charges were swept under the rug. Bernie knows what side his bread is buttered on.
