Corporate-Government Collaboration Is One Way

Richard WolffIn this country, every automobile company in Detroit got subsidies from the Detroit and Michigan government. They got roads built to convenience their shipping. They got programs in the high schools to prepare people. They got very expensive government paid for benefits for decades. When they got up and left, no one said, “Excuse me, you’re not leaving unless you pay back! We helped you with the idea that you’d stay here. You wanna leave, okay. But you gotta pay back!”
