: Then let's pass laws saying that if you emigrate you can't take your money with you, or make it more difficult top transport capital. Let's make it more difficult to fire workers or close down plants. Oh, and where exactly would teh CEOs go? Cuba? America is one of the most pro-business countreis aroumnd.

Not after laws like these get the first airing in Washington - then the flight will begin. Europe would then be free er, SE Asia would be. Govts must compete to keep the productive classes, and every year as communication and travel become cheaper they must compete to keep more and more people - not just the very rich, or the very capable.

How very frightening for everyone excpet those whose pleasure derives from destruction and control
