To understand why corporatism violates the concepts of both capitalism and the free market, it might be helpful to define these two terms. Capitalism.org describes capitalism as a system in which property is privately owned and there is a separation of state and businesses similar to the separation of church and state. A free market is one in which businesses have an opportunity to compete without certain companies receiving an unfair advantage. InvestorWords.com defines a free market as a system in which businesses are not restrained by government subsidies, interference or regulation.
Corporate welfare violates the separation of business and state that is an important aspect of capitalism. It violates the principles of a free market by giving an uneven playing field, restraining certain industries through regulation or giving favored corporations a competitive advantage through subsidies. In short, corporate welfare is counterproductive to both capitalism and the free market.
