What Do You Call A Country Ruled By Corporations?

A corporatocracy?

How about a kleptocracy.

I wish I could be outraged at this, but when the ruling party is bought and paid for by corporate interests... it's not easy. What else, really, should we expect?

It's almost enough to make you laugh—bitterly, of course. Here was Ford Motor Co. announcing yesterday that it had cut 10,000 jobs last year and that it will cut up to 30,000 more. But shedding jobs at muscle-car acceleration rates didn't stop Ford from pocketing hundreds of millions of dollars courtesy of the American Jobs Creation Act.
