Re: A funny state of the economy
Corporations only have power through money. If the financial system collapses they will be in no state to monopolize anything.
Opposition from Congress or not, you only have to look at Obama's cabinet upon taking office to see how very smooth the transition was from the Bush administration. Robert Gates even stayed on, the only Secretary of Defense in US history to stay on from one administration to the next! How that represents change with regards to foreign policy I do not know.
