The Crossroads for Government and Business

business_government

Two of the major forces that have shaped America into the world’s lone superpower are a democratic governing system and free market capitalism.  Have these societal forces shaped over time to compliment one another or do they counter balance?  The answer is both.  They are interdependent on one another.  The government both regulates private enterprise to protect citizens from capitalisms excesses and at the same time provides incentives to encourage private business and industry to thrive.  Major industries like banking, energy, telecommunications and aerospace down to small corner businesses can be helped or harmed by government action.
