    Do you think there is any other country in the world talking of their banking business like this?

    The fact is that the banks are offering dishonest sub prime loans again.

    As I just showed the results of 3 combined studies showing a good regulatory environment ... actually noted as one of the best in the OECD, the argument doesn't stand.

    Alternatives in backwards countries will be attractive, but not as attractive as $1.75 hr manufacturing wage in China, relative to $33 hr for compensation in the US.

    Selecting regulation in a good environment as an excuse is like telling your spouse your leaving them because you don't feel right inside ... whilst your banging the neighbor.

    How did this switch to Ayn Rand??

    The lack of focus here can be astonishing.

    Trade can be mutually beneficial for countries as long as they are (1) sufficiently competitive and (2) leverage areas of comparative advantage. When countries leverage what they do best, as opposed to trying to do everything, they can strengthen their advantages in those crucial areas. At the same time, by shifting investment away from areas in which they are not competitive and have little prospect of being competitive, they can increase returns on capital for existing economic activity and free up capital for investment in emergent areas that create tomorrow's competitive advantages. Finally, because consumers enjoy greater choice (range of products and also product prices), consumer welfare benefits from trade. In the long-run, that approach can lead to stronger growth and more jobs, not less. A recent case in point is Germany. With its world-leading manufacturing sector, Germany has been able to leverage global growth and, as a result, suffer less harm than many other developed countries during the recent recession/financial crisis and enjoy a faster jobs recovery/higher levels of employment than the U.S., despite the major structural problems still confronting Europe.

    Clearly, there are also some downsides. Not every industry is world-class competitive in every country. Hence, dislocations can result from trade. Policy makers need to focus on transitions, improving a country's factor conditions (especially human capital in today's increasingly knowledge-intensive/information-oriented macroeconomic environment) and offer a viable transition strategy to mitigate the impact of temporary dislocations. In general, a country should not seek to prop up industries that have no prospect of becoming world-class competitive (a necessity when those firms must compete with such rivals). Doing so only raises costs to consumers (price and quality trade-offs) and undermines consumer welfare. An exception can be made for the tiny number of industries that are of strategic importance, namely essential for the national survival so to speak. A case can also be made for an exception for infant industries, but there is a risk that such temporary protection can evolve into a permanent regime leading to overall net losses in consumer welfare and high opportunity costs.

    Sometimes you attack the wrong issue ... litigation is the issue ... not regulation.

    So you haven't noticed any busnesses moving overseas or the economy becoming mired in debt?

    Sure. While you have that job. But how long will that sublime notion last?

    Leftists should always avoid attempts at irony and analogies. Just try to stick to the facts and work from there.

    You're still just flinging out baseless innuendo. I wonder why? Could it be that the states with the highest poverty rates are actually southern conservative states? Actually, it could be. http://www.census.gov/compendia/stat...es/11s0708.pdf

    I notice that Texas is right up there with West Virginia. Congratulations, Governor Perry.

    You have a little correlation/causation problem there. To the extent that businesses are moving out of the U.S. it's primarily because of cheap labor and because developing economies are growing faster and thus provide more opportunity for expansion. It has little to do with regulation or litigation.

    Actually they are two of many issues. Unsustainable debt would be another major issue as well as a large segment of the population which believes the government can be all things to all people.

    It certaily has because it has become too expensive to do business in the United States. Ask thoose who are leaving, the ones who are being forced to pay that $33 an hour you mentioned.

    Now Boeing, as one of the latest examples, might even leave because the government is restricting their movement. And they'll be leaving those $33 an hour jobs behind.
