We certainly need to be investing more money into small companies instead of pumping money into large corporations and allowing the government to continue to create more regulations that only help protect large corps from real competition by making it exponentially harder for small companies to survive.
A healthy middle class is sustained when an economy has a robust oscillating process between the creative ability of individuals on one side of the socioeconomic system and the commodifying powers of collectives (govs and corps) on the other.
