Wow, I penned an economic theory called "Market Defense Theory," about two years ago. It came to me in a flash of brilliance although I have had trouble convincing people that it was viable. It essentially had to do with setting up corporations that were geared to fight back against market exploitation by funding corrections to market inequalities. This is the first practical example of such a theory being put to use.
More or less, Smith purests attest that competition arises from companies competing against each other for a slice of the pie, and that competition will create a balanced market. However, to use a football analogy, this isn't exactly offense and defense, instead market competition is akin to receivers and running backs fighting over yards and points. A Market Defense Corporation is more like a linebacker, slowing and halting the progress of companies in the entire market, making sure that it is not skewed in a way that exploits consumers.
I know that probably sounds convoluted and it is just a snippit of my entire brainstorm, but this OWS example is close to what I am trying to explain. It gives me hope that someday, I might be able to put it in a much clearer way. Just intuitively though, I know there is merit to this idea.
