"Given the extensive involvement of state violence in the process by which the corporate elite not only achieved its wealth in the past but continues to maintain and augment it in the present, it is clear that the massive inequalities of wealth that characterise present-day “capitalist” society are radically inconsistent with any approach to justice in holdings that is even remotely Nozickian."
Corporatocracy also called Corpocracy, Crony Capitalism, Monopoly Capitalism, Lemon Socialism, Cronyism, Supercapitalism and Socialism for the Rich is an economic system in which the state intervenes within the economy for the benefit of the profit of a select number for corporations, especially in the context of squashing competition.
Corporatocracy-like economic policies could have been said to have started with the process of enclosure in England. The enclosure was a process in England practiced since the 13th century by which the English State took communally owned rural land by force and gave it to private owners. When Mercantilism became popularized, governments began to create monopoly corporations in certain trades and industries. Some of these firms such as the East India Company and Hudson Bay Company became so powerful they effectively ruled over the territory. During the Gilded Age, with the rise of industrial capitalism monopolies and other corporations began to get more influence in the government with corruption being rampant. However, during the Progressive era corruption and the influence of corporations in government declined. Since the presidency of Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, many say the United States has been experiencing a constant shift towards Corporatocracy due to more favorable policies given to corporations, corporate influence in government (Lobbying aka legalized bribery), rising income inequality, and the dominance of the workplace by corporations.
Lemon Socialism emerged as a pejorative term for an economic system based on: a government that offers subsidies to weak, bad or bankrupt companies so that they don't end up and remain in the market.
Mega Corporatocracy is an ideology that wants to one corporation control all aspects of human life, and force everyone to only work and consume. There is only one world government that has a monopoly on everything. An example of Mega Corporatocracy is the BNL from the 2008 Pixar film, Wall-E.
Supercapitalism was a concept created by fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. This theoretical variant of corporatocracy would intervene in society so that it was fully standardized so that companies could know what customers want and customers would consume infinitely. This variant is similar to Fordism, the fictional ideology of "Brave New World".
The Congo Free State Model was based on the Congo Free State, a former colony of Leopold II, King of the Belgians . The economy is based on a state that enslaves black population so that the enslaved are distributed to corporations, and slaves who do not obey would be killed or lose their hands. In general, the Congo Free State economy preaches state interference to protect large corporations that enslave Blacks.
Shellism, Shell model, or more appropriately, Shell Neo-Imperialism, is based on the Shell PLC (formerly Royal Dutch Shell PLC), a super-major oil giant, and its subjugation of Nigeria. The basis of its beliefs would involve securing hegemony over a country through constant bribery towards its government and national military, controlling and operating the oil via its oil extraction infrastructure and distribution networks, and spreading propaganda to pacify the population and sway public opinion to hide the several atrocities committed there, including the aforementioned corruption and bribery, bribed military operations to suppress anyone there from spreading awareness and fighting for genuine change, and the several thousand oil spills resulting in the poisoning of Nigeria's water supply and environment that were denied responsibility of shell and were instead blamed on terrorists.
Bezosism, Amazonism or Amazonization, is based on the relationship between Jeff Bezos and his company Amazon, with the American government. It is the driest form of Corporatocracy, preaching that the only state interference in the economy is to give subsidies and forgive some deregulation of private companies, among others.
Steve Sisolak thought believes that local governments should be run by tech companies. He believes that by letting tech companies do local governance, economic development and advances in technology would accelerate.
Corporatocracy as a character cares a hell of a lot about getting the maximum amount of money possible, and unlike certain other people with this trait, corp is very much willing to use organized violence to achieve this goal.
Corp absolutely loves government policies that favor the wealthy to an insane extent, and he is often seen literally worshiping concepts such as Intellectual Property as a deity. Because of his love of these policies, he hates the public domain.
Since he thinks the state must serve powerful business owners, he is one of the few ideologies that openly believes that corporate lobbying is a good thing. This is an idea that even some other capitalist ideologies see as unjust (when consistent).
