[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Who's on your ignore list? : Actually, you might need to move to China to get a job. Odd, but American capitalists seem to have an unusual degree of fondness for the Communist Chinese model--at least if you consider where they decide to locate their factories.

See that is the great part of today's world, I can locate my business in the correct location to make me competitive and still live in the States.
Use to be that Roche Brothers (bad name for a grocery store but true) in Roslindale Square was one of the best around. They delivered groceries to your house because most of the people in our lower income had only one car and it was at work.
Then First National came along as a regional store throughout NE and put Roche Brothers out of business because they could buy cheaper and had a better supply chain.
Then A&P came along and ate up First National as they had the entire East coast.
Now it is Kroger, Publix and others doing the same to A&P.
Business flows to the best model possible or it goes out of business. Compaq Computer was a $40 billion dollar company until Dell came along with a new faster better model and Compaq no longer exists.
Economics has always worked the same way since the wheel. The next new thing, process, service, if better than the existing, will always win. Fail to adapt and die. If you die the pensions and futures of your people die also
It is not about rich people moving companies, it is about consumer requirements being met. Faster cheaper better. As China and India's population grows and gains wealth they too will demand more and become consuming nations of well paid people with higher standards of living and the jobs will flow to the next cheap place, could be the US.
But hey what do I know
