We, the People

We, the People are supposed to be in charge. Why would we allow an economic system that don’t serve We, the People? Why allow businesses that don’t pay well, make things that last, provide service and pay back taxes to cover the infrastructure that supports our businesses?
Why would we allow corporations whose only purpose is “to make money for shareholders”? What kind of We, the People system would ever allow that?
Who is our economy for?
