The term was first used in Marcos' Philippines. It was coercive. While it included government guarantees to private loans for cronies who provided a standard 50% kickback, the main thrust was control by cronies of sugar and copra buying, and control of imports which the principle export industries used. Here it is going to be very similar but far more complex because we don’t just export coconut oil and refined sugar. Obama care will give them control of the insurance industry, eventually big pharma, and medical devices. The banking system is already controlled, or already in control. Next will be energy.
