  Corporatism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Political scientists may also use the term corporatism to describe a practice whereby an authoritarian state, through the process of licensing and regulating officially-incorporated social, religious, economic, or popular organizations, effectively co-opts their leadership or circumscribes their ability to challenge state authority by establishing the state as the source of their legitimacy.
Corporatism is a form of class collaboration put forward as an alternative to class conflict, and was first proposed in Pope Leo XIII's 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum, which influenced Catholic trade unions that organised in the early twentieth century to counter the influence of trade unions founded on a socialist ideology.
Corporatism or neo-corporatism is often used popularly as a pejorative term in reference to perceived tendencies in politics for legislators and administrations to be influenced or dominated by the interests of business enterprises, employers' organizations, and industry trade groups.

Corporatism & Neo-Corporatism: Assumptions Sovereignty and Interventionism There are three assumptions shared by virtually all theories and definitions of corporatism (including neo-corporatism) that are critical to this research; the corporatist state possesses relatively absolute internal sovereignty, the state is decidedly interventionist in society, and the state has identifiable external sovereignty.

 What is American Corporatism? : SF Indymedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Unlike socialism, corporatism understands that direct government ownership of the means of production does not work, except in the limiting case of infrastructure.1 But it does not represent a half-way condition between capitalism and socialism.
Bribes-if-you-do are a much less disruptive means of manipulating behavior than sanctions-if-you-don't, and corporatism hates disruption and loves business as usual.4 One way to interpret corporatism is as a systematic way for government to distribute bribes for submission to its authority.
But they are also ambivalent about it in theory, because it contradicts many of their cherished ideological beliefs.6 At the level of ideological self-characterization, neither side has fully grasped what corporatism is nor can quite bring itself to admit that it endorses it.

 Corporatism and Socialism in America by Anthony Gregory
Indeed, corporatism, implemented by the state –; whether through direct handouts, corporate bailouts, eminent domain, licensing laws, antitrust regulations, or environmental edicts – inflicts great harm on the modern American economy.
We should recognize that state corporatism is a form of socialism, and it is nearly inevitable in a mixed economy that the introduction of more socialism will cartelize industry and consolidate wealth in the hands of the few.
What is more often neglected is that the history of the American domestic welfare and regulatory state also corresponds closely to the rise of corporatism.
