Corporations don't create jobs, they eliminate jobs.
While you see corporations are having problems, you still think corporations are the end all, creators of everything.
Backpedal all you will by posting some nonsense about ideas and labor.
You are completely clueless as to what creates value.
Here is a link for you to read, it is from the Mises institute, but it is about Locke, so that makes it worth reading.
A giant IC based in Canada will still continue to do most of its business in the U.S. because the U.S. economy is so much bigger. It doesn't matter
where the headquarters is based, they will still be taxed for their business operations in the U.S.. Maybe China and India will become like the U.S.
in the future, but that will be in the distant future. Both are most likely heading in the direction of Japan.
Our biggest differences is that you seem to be absolutely convinced that the U.S. needs corporations, when it does not. If anything, corporations get
in the way of U.S.productivity.
Please explain to me how the US military ensures the thriving of home soil headquarted US corporations. Im assuming by making this statement,
you are stating your willingness to continue Americans overseas imperialism in order to ensure the continued growth of your corporations. If not, i
guess you can scratch your "they need the U.S. military to keep their overseas operations going".
Just the opposite, I want to kick out the corporations and stop backing their overseas corporate imperialism. This has been one of my biggest points
from the beginning. Why the corporations should pay U.S. debt, because the money was spent promoting their overseas imperialism. They will pay the
money in order to continue doing business in the U.S., and in hopes of regaining control of the U.S., should they loose control once again.
As far as your links go, I think it is great John Deere is building plants in India to sell goods to India. John Deere is one of the few legitimate
corporations out there. Doesn't alter my concepts, actually enforces them. Build locally, and sell locally.
While corporations are moving out of the U.S., they are still planning on selling in the U.S.., that is when we hit them with the taxes.
Corporations, and all businesses that build in the U.S. and sell in the U.S. will pay lower taxes. Businesses who refuse to follow reasonable
environmental and labor standards, should pay higher taxes to do business in the U.S. irregardless of where they manufacture.
Your third article is just a bunch of propaganda garbage. It is the failure of the U.S. government to enforce the laws against corrupt corporations
that discourages small business start ups. When Clinton was in office, and regulations were back in effect, we made more start ups than ever before.
What corporations mainly do is push out smaller, more efficient, more innovative smaller businesses by underhanded business practices.
Really hard not to roll my eyes at you.
I challenge you to show me how the USA is still the best option...
Ever hear of GDP? Who cares what those garbage articles say, GDP is the bottom line.
The lions share of new tech still comes from the U.S., and until that changes, the U.S. will remain on top.
