When big pharma patents a drug and makes it so expensive people die, or they push a drug that is useless and even dangerous.
When Monsanto controls a significant portion of how food is produced.
When you cannot look to a local provider for nearly anything (internet, clothes, etc), because either they cannot compete or their prices are too high for everyman.
When laws are passed that curtail your freedoms in exchange for better profits to the few.
It does infect your everyday life, and I would argue that your have even less power to confront it as you would a direct bribe.
