Not only are they not the same, they are diametrically opposed.
The whole point of government is to govern, or regulate, both society and the economy.
The role of government is laid out in the preamble of the United States Constitution.

"We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."


I'm guessing a common corporate mission statement reads, "To make as much profit as possible for our shareholders, screw everyone else including the country we reside in."
