Jefferson on the aristocracy of corporations

Just while I was thinking about it, Jefferson usually got a thing or two right... From the Online Library of Liberty :
I hope we shall take warning from the example and crush in it’s birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.

Right on one or two things?

Other than his personal slave ownership, (his political position was against slavery) Jefferson usually did get it right.

Who understands the original intent better? Jefferson or Scalia?
