How is this different from the MS model?
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, November 24 2012 @ 08:01 PM EST
Sounds like companies trying to live the Bill Gates dream to me. Trample
productivity, enslave the masses, and strong-arm governments to your will.

American (and other) Owned Companies
Authored by: cricketjeff on Sunday, November 25 2012 @ 05:30 PM EST
Who provide tens of thousands of jobs in China (such as Apple) already sue
Korean companies who provide thousands of US jobs, such as Samsung.

Large companies are very rarely national, they follow their own best interests.
Middle Eastern and Chinese countries run huge trade surpluses with the
traditional West, these earnings are held in dollars and dollars are only any
use if you buy things with them, the only things you can buy with that many
dollars are Western companies, this is how International capitalism works, to
paraphrase Churchill it's a lousy system and as soon as someone thinks up a
better one I'll be in favour of it!
