Well, it is no longer necessary to use whips and chains to enslave human beings, allthough there still people who still revert to these out-dated methods simply because they have not figured out how to exploit the complexity of modern day life.

But the business world quickly realized that to enslave people all you need to do is provide them with enough credit to hang themselves.

This is not unlike the old "company store" concept where the owners had the market on housing and goods cornered and simply kept wages low enough that no one could ever save anything. And any raises a worker might acheive always got sucked up by "inflation" on the goods.
