This is the major problem with “the free market decides” because beyond a certain level of power anything can become “as if” a govt itself.

The thing about govt-like free agents is lack of accountability. Theoretically, a govt should have _some_ sort of accountability to the people under its wings. But a govt-like free agent like a corporation only has to answer to themselves.

“Shareholder value” is mythological.

Just themselves.

Add regulations and lawsuits and that just adds things for them to avoid but doesn’t affect them much.
