Produce everything industrially so people can't earn their living producing things that the market needs-- furniture, clothes, shoes, umbrellas, etc.
If industrial production costs too much, allow them some tax breaks. Offer them land at prices significantly lower than the market price, so they can easily breakeven.
Are they still skeptical? Help them get hefty loans at lower interest with a little promise of bailout if something breaks.
Still they need help? Well, steal public money and build public schools and colleges so you can take off their shoulders the cost of training and developing employees. The government shall take care of it. Make sure the population does not learn anything other than what is needed to work at corporations and factories. Fund colleges well so the industries don't have to spend money on Research and Development either. Let's hope now they should be able to outcompete domestic producers.
What? They are not dominating? Make it harder for domestic producers. How about some new occupational licensing laws? If our industrial friends need more help, we can increase the cost of licensure, renewal fees, registration fees, etc.
Let's look at if we managed to mentally break our population. If working for a corporation is the only option left for them, that is ideal. Now, they can be controlled. They would have to shave their mustaches, wear exactly what we want them to wear, support the political party we want them to support, support the religion we want them to. What else are they gonna do? Deny us? How are they gonna survive?
What can be we do about it?
Willful sacrifice. If people quit globalism, quit supporting corporates, quit working for governments and corporations, public-private collusion may become weak. But I don't see that happening.
People like to talk, but no one likes to be the change. Things are way out of control. No politician would deregulate and risk losing elections. I envision things getting much worse, more corporate control, more corporate slavery, more wealth accumulation in the hands of a few, until one day someone points out that no one has any assets left, until life becomes so difficult that a minor incidence will spark a revolution. Leaders known for corruption will be executed exactly how they were before any revolution. If it ends soon, nothing would change. If the spark became a fire, things may change.
