A Phoenix Suggestion:
Regulating Big Corporations

Suggestion to Congress: It is clear that mega-corporations, such as Google and Amazon, have gotten so bit and powerful that their impact and control of the economy is no longer in the public interest. Some form of trust-busting, monopoly regulation, is in order. But please, don't flush the baby with the bath-water! These companies have gotten so big because they fill a strong demand: broad selection, global access, and rapid service and delivery. That Pandora's Box is open and cannot be closed. Consumers will never again be satisfied with the limits of brick-and-mortar retail. Regulations that make it impossible for vendors to provide that level of service, will not be acceptable to voting consumers. I suggest that instead, policies, and perhaps temporary subsidies, be put in place to enable other companies to compete effectively and profitably in this market.
