    They bottle and sell the world over, why wouldn't they invest in China? Or India? Or any other country they do business in?

    I can give you 3 reasons why they're better off investing there than here.

    1. The Chinese market is opening to demand for Coke products. There will be no chinese made coke products on our shelves, but for foreign consumption. That profit also will STAY overseas till such time that the US becomes safe again to reinvest domestically.

    2. The costs to operate and run a business in an hostile business climate such as the US jeopardizes the chance of success and profit in the US.

    3. With all the idiots screaming to punish both the rich AND corporations who 'don't pay their fair share', you don't put your capital in harm's way by investing inside their reach.

    When economic, regulatory and legislative sanity returns to this nation (hopefully in 2012) THEN you will see the return of investment capital and business as the economic environment stabilizes.

    I'm sure you're so patriotic, you don't own any investment in foreign profiting companies either.

    Can the hypocrisy.
