I'm always confused by this usage of the terms corporatist / corporatism. Isn't the technical meaning in political science quite different?

Arguably the term can refer to "government *by* corporations" but only for a very broad sense of "corporation" and certainly not in the sense of big business.

Not necessarily disagreeing with your underlying statement, only the term "corporatist".
