fiveanthems: Government ran and or heavily regulated business does not foster competition it creates oligarchies and monopolies.
The little guy with a new idea has no chance of success in a socialist system, The regulations, High mandatory union wages and benefits, High taxes, and higher cost of material means the little guy has no way of making enough profit to compete with government ran and subsidized companies.
In that system innovation ceases to exist, people with new ideas know they will be smothered so they don't even attempt entrepreneurship.
We live in a world where the reward has to outweigh the risk, otherwise the endeavor is not worth doing, plain and simple.
May I suggest you read a book called Atlas Shrugged by the author Ayn Rand, It is very informative and enlightening on the subject.
