Headline: Monopolies and Freelance

Nutshell: The world will be divided into monopolies and freelancers.


The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and nothing is happening to prevent it. An ignored problem does not solve itself. The future holds a massive economic segregation of large and small businesses. Corporations will monopolize, and those who protest them will remain freelance and probably will remain at the lower-medium income level.
