New Challenge of Capitalism

The challenge that global capitalism comes with is this. A government can ensure that its citizens enjoy the opportunity necessary to challenge and replace existing leaders and wealthy in its own borders. However, there is no global authority granting opportunity to all. Hence, once a private corporation reaches a size on a global scale that it can then use to garantee the continuation of its power (such as AIG), governments fail to provide the necessary degree of opportunity to others. This leaves large corporations without the challenge needed to keep them on their toes.
