    I'm supposed to re-counter your "hogwash" comment?

    OK....Jack, you don't know jack.

    Hows that?

    It should be at about the same level.

    Sorry; my bad (working from memory). The Seattle-Bellevue-Everett region, has 3%, not King County. Still, you pack a bunch of Libbies into an area that elects a guy like Jim McDermott and you gotta wonder how on earth we could open a popsicle stand, much less have companies you might have heard of, like: Microsoft; Boeing; AT&T Cellular (McCaw); Amazon; Starbucks; Columbia; Nordstrom; Costco ...

    Dumb luck I guess, despite our business-killing $9.19 minimum wage. Or perhaps the more northern latitude, which due to fewer daylight hours in Winter does not actually follow the laws of supply and demand as Professor Emeritus Limbaugh, AM Radio department of Business Finance / Economics would teach. Merely a speculation.

    From what I have so far read, it would be a blessing for towns if Walmart does not open it's doors there. Let one of their competitors open their stores, much healthier for the employees and it would teach Walmart that blackmailing your government will not work.
    Workers are better off if they are denied the option of working at Wal*Mart? Consumers are better off if they are denied the option of shopping there? How can this be?

    I know how contanerized shipping has totally changed the economics of imported products.

    Either stay within the context of our conversation or ignore me.
    What is a "protected market"? And shipping costs from China are significant; manufacturing trends are actually starting to bring production back to the U.S.

    Zero state income tax, right?

    Wow.....you call yourself "very liberal", you castigate liberals as you put down Limbaugh.

    I'm getting repetitive, but technological change is altering the economics of manufacturing. And what, exactly, is "society"? Corporations exist outside of society?

    They capitalize on it for the benefit of their customers. That's what has made them so successful.
