Corporations are the greatest drivers of wealth creation in the history of mankind.
Because they screw their employers without their permission. That's rape, right?
Becuase of their disproportinate influence on our govt thru lobbyists?
I do not hate corporations, Heck I owned a couple. I just think they have to much gotv influence and do not pay their fair share all the time.
And for the past few decades feel that they must continually increase their profit.
Quite often at the expense of US workers thru layoff, pay cuts or offshoring.
because they are outside their control. And , I think they are envious that those that do, do and the others that don't don't, either they are part of those that don't, or part of that set of folks who think they know more, feel 'more' than anyone else and have in their bottomless pit of narcissism, the virtue to match.
Oh puhleeeze. That's an insult to real rape victims.
I suppose you would rather we all just live like feudal subsistence farming serfs of the Great Collective.
I'll pass. I like living with modern technology, indoor plumbing, refrigeration and all that Corporate Stuff.
because they are stupid brainwashed kool aid drinking wombats.
Name one thing invented by Government that helped boost our GDP or created an industry and thus jobs.
Umm the internet? Integrated cirsuits, super glue, Satellites, the list goes on and on.
Without govt funded research we would not have many things we now take for granted.
I think the modern corporation is becoming outdated except for regulated utilities. If you look around your house you are provided services by machinery that cost Louis XIV a fortune in servant salaries: flush toilets, showers, washing machines, dryers, vacuum cleaners and a long list of other appliances and conveniences. The US is still the world's leading manufacturer but that doesn't generate much in the way of jobs. Walmart, Target and McDonald's are the big employers in today's world but is anyone going to be surprised if they go bye-bye by 2020?
Quite true but virtually all of those advances and many more were less the result of grants than DARPA prize money. Government rewarded research is much more effective than government funded research.
