It just needs to be managed. The problems you mentioned don't necessarily arise from just allowing people freedom to make money, it's the result of some companies growing too large and putting their own profits above the interests of the nation as a whole. The role of government should be to enforce and defend the borders of the nation, and to regulate what comes into and goes out of the country, be it people, jobs, money, whatever. Outsourcing labor, importation of cheap products that undercuts the nation's industry, things like that should be stopped through tariffs and regulations, and companies that get too large should probably be broken up, but within the nations borders I think people should be basically free to do business as they please.

If you allow them to make enough money they will be able to use that money to buy influence and power. They will have a financial incentive to use that money for influence and power.
well, let's start from the opposite direction then. what do you propose exactly?
I'm honestly not sure, but distributism looks like a better alternative. People should be allowed to own their own property and start their own businesses, but we can't allow the means of production to be controlled by a small group of people. If many people control means of production then the citizens of the nation will have a greater influence on policy. Economic power = political power.
>>131437>the means of production
And the "means of production" is what exactly? Resources, raw materials, factories? It's a Marxist term based on an outdated Industrial Revolution era model not really applicable to the modern world. The biggest, Jewiest corporations in the world right now that are probably doing the greatest amount of harm are news and media corporations and software giants, and they basically don't produce anything.
