Most of the Americans are worried that US faces a crisis of corporate capture of democratic government, where the economic power of corporations has been translated into political power with disastrous effects for people's lives. In his new book, Captured: The Corporate Infiltration of American Democracy, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse warns that "corporations of vast wealth and remorseless staying power have moved into our politics to seize for themselves advantages that can be seized only by control over government." The book illustrates what he calls, the "immense pressure deployed by the corporate sector in our government." He emphasised that they must rebalance their democracy by changing the rules to limit the power of money over government and empower people to engage politically as a countervailing force.
I think corporate are essential part of the country. They are very much important for the progress of the nation too but they should not be so much powerful that they would begin to influence the government as Americans are looking worried.
