Corporations can influence various governments to foster a more favorable environment for them to invest in. Often, under the threat of moving elsewhere, poorer countries are forced to lower or even nearly eliminate certain corporate taxes to these large foreign investors.
This distorts markets in favor of the big players.
As such influence spreads globally, it contributes to a form of globalization that seems less like true free market capitalism that they talk of, but more like a modern form of the unequal mercantilism that prevailed during colonial and imperial times.

More than just a few rotten apples that various economists and business elite tried to describe as the cause, is the system itself. As the previous link also points out, the systemic problems had long contributed to inequality and other problems, but now that even other aspects are being affected, it is now highlighting the deeper problems even more: The crisis is not the result of a few bad apples.

History suggests that if a population is pushed too far, revolts can be violent.
