Gallup Poll that nicely illustrates the divide in the US as to who people blame for our various woes--Government or Corporations. Where do YOU fall in this poll?


Latest Gallup poll showing the differences between Republicans and Democrats regarding their respective view of Government and Corporations.   I modified the results to illustrate the extremes on both sides. An almost perfect Venn Diagram would overlap the silent majority---Independents, and implicitly identifies the REAL PROBLEM---Crony Capitalism.   This is where I reside. How about you???

Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close  relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of dirigisme.[1] Crony capitalism is believed to arise when political cronyism spills over into the business world; self-serving friendships and family ties between businessmen and the government influence the economy and society to the extent that it corrupts public-serving economic and political ideals.
