Established businesses generally like a stable political climate regardless of the form, however,  communist or socialist governments are more useful at limiting competition, therefore, a favorite of established business. The only question is what is the price.

If you consider starting a competitive business you will find the regulations over whelming.

Look at the article from the American Magazine about what Washington DC is doing.

If you read the Declaration of Independence and the original U. S. Constitution you will note that these documents refer to individuals rather than fictious beings (corporations).
