Maybe it's a little more exacerbated in football because it allows you to produce more money, through revenue and higher valued players, but just pointing out that it's not solely a football phenomenon.
EDIT: realised that I hadn't made my edit when you probably posted that. Accidentally hit submit before I wrote about your post that I quoted.

Even Lyon's dominance is a prime example of why money doesn't matter as much as you might think. Lyon were dominant because for a 7 year period they spent their money in a much smarter fashion than anyone else in France. Lyon historically are neither big nor rich.
Definite yes for promotion and relegation in most circumstances.
Definite no for wage cap - at least in English football where it didn't particularly add much when it was the rule. However, definitely needs financial regulation of some sort. UEFA's ideas look good on paper but suspect they'll be easy to circumnavigate. Even if they work I don't suppose it will reverse the gentrification of the game.
Worth pointing out that 7 of Barcelona's starting lineup are products of their youth system (would have been 8 if Puyol had started).
