Re: Who does he think his customers are, if not employed people

If you're BAe Systems, or US equivalent, who are your direct customers ? It's not the man in the street, it's not even the purchasing directors at Tesco/Walmart?

If you're not keen on that particular example, there are plenty similar. E.g. Big Pharma. Google. Maybe even Microsoft in the days when PCs were still seen as the answer.

The idea that ordinary market forces allow Joe Public to routinely exert any significant influence over multinational businesses is laughable.
