I believe it should be more like "Corporatista," because he is not catering to the community, but rather the corporations.
While I agree that corporations frequently influence regulation, often to the detriment of the intent of the regulators...I would also add that "the community" provides non-productive influence as well.
The real problem with regulation in this country is twofold
1. Regulators often don't well understand the technology for which they are making regulatory decisions.
2. Regulators are either elected positions or they are appointed by people in elected positions who have a vested interest in keeping those that put them into power fat, dumb and happy.
The result is that regulators end up reacting to individuals or corporations who are unreasonably screaming like Verruca Salt, "I want it and I want it now!" instead of making informed and well though decisions.
Is it any wonder that the system is screwed up?
