It is very difficult, in our global society, for governments to control international corporations. It seems to be they who control the governments. And if you make life too uncomfortable for them, they’ll take their business to another country. And free market ideology has encouraged the idea that corporations are best left alone. Survival of the fittest and all that.
It has happened before. The Great Depression, which occurred under the last Uranus-Pluto square, was a crisis caused by lack of regulation in the financial system. Rules were introduced as a result, and then junked in the 90s. And now we’ve got another financial crisis.

Though people are protesting against the power of the corporations, things may get worse. Pluto is only 3 years into Capricorn. It may be a time when big business becomes more powerful than ever.

On the other hand, the Ingress Chart for Pluto into Capricorn has some nice things going on. The Ingress Chart for Pluto in Cancer in 1912 had Pluto in square to a Mars-Venus conjunction, and what we got was 2 world wars. The Capricorn Ingress chart has Pluto conjunct Venus and Jupiter in Capricorn, trine to retrograde Saturn, and an out of sign opposition to retrograde Mars. So a lot going on, a lot to sort out, but the potential for war seems less. And Pluto is surrounded by much nicer aspects compared to the Cancer Ingress Pluto.
The Capricorn Ingress Chart also has Moon opposite Uranus, suggesting protest (Uranus) by the people (Moon); and as Uranus has started to square Pluto, so have we seen the Arab Spring and the Occupy protests.
