If you search online “do corporations have too much power”, results are dominated by Unites States sources. It’s as if the debate hasn’t even started in the UK. Perhaps it should.
You could argue that those protesting against trans-Atlantic free trade agreements are die-hard socialists who prefer to keep Europe’s sclerotic status-quo and don’t want change.
Or you could wonder if they have a point. Their protest isn’t as much against the trade agreements per se, as against increasing dominance by big, multinational companies that have as much cash as a medium country’s GDP and so much power they sometimes bend governments to their will.
