What percentage of companies commit fraud today on a daily basis?
Your implicit assertion is not only controversial and unsupported,
it's also vague. Even if it were "true" (and it's so vague that it
is, as Pauli might have said, not even wrong), how much of that
current fraud is a result of big business taking advantage of
corruption and special advantages given them by the state? Eliminate
the state, and perhaps you'd eliminate most of that fraud. This
itself is vague, but it's all I can come up with to counter your
"argument". Vagueness gets vagueness, and specifics get specifics.
