I got a little worked up there.
To be fair, Madison was precapitalist, and he saw the owners as benevolent people who'd oversee the welfare of the majority. He wasn't thinking of corporate executives stamping on people to maximize wealth. When Hamilton began to push the country that way, Madison became very upset which started their epic disagreements.
If you could bring him, or any founding father 200 years in the future, they'd be disgusted, depressed and I believe vehemently anti-capitalist.
