Also, I don't understand why you would choose stagnation over healthy economic growth for the middle class. Doing this will take strong technological development, good education, low taxes and regulations, and moderate income inequality.
The American condition is actually better than in most other places in the world. You guys need to put away the torches and pitch forks and try to figure out how to earn your way to the 1% rather than trying to get the govt to give their money to you.
this has nothing to do with what I posted. please go back read and understand.
yes the US has become hostile to businesses. they are moving to more friendly businesses environments.
more so under this administration. now the EPA is attacking the airline. that is all they can do is try to shut businesses down instead of building them up.
the cost in jobs and business growth is huge.
however as I proved there is no such thing as tax breaks for moving jobs overseas. it is just another liberal lie.
right up there with you can keep your plan if you like it and you can keep your doctor.
What's not to like - socialize the costs of pollution, privatize the profits. Works every time it's been tried!
Also, too, workplace safety is overrated. We'd have a lot more jobs if we just accepted workplace deaths/disease/injuries of the proles when it slows progress! Etc.
I have no doubt we could as a country eliminate a lot of regulations on the margins that would have little effect on the things we care about, but that is a difficult process, that takes more work than just whining about the EPA, which came about and got its power because we had air and water like China. It's far cheaper and you get higher economic growth when millions of individuals pay for pollution with shorter lives and poor health than when the polluter pays for cleanup at the source. OSHA emerged because businesses objectively ignore problems that don't come with a cost to them. What is a life worth? For businesses, it's worth precisely what a lawsuit after the death/disease/injury will cost, if the family of the dead are allowed to sue, and the state forces the defendant to pay. In "business friendly" locations, that worth is effectively zero, and so workplaces aren't safe. Workers put up with it because not ALL THAT MANY people die immediately, and the long term risks from exposure to chemicals are hidden, and after all in corrupt regimes the alternative is starvation and death.
