Comments on: Can the U.S. compete with China in the green economy? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/03/11/can-the-u-s-compete-with-china-in-the-green-economy/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Alan_McCrindle http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/03/11/can-the-u-s-compete-with-china-in-the-green-economy/comment-page-1/#comment-344629 Mon, 15 Mar 2010 07:34:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=16521#comment-344629 This is the wrong question to ask – business is now Global not National – patriotism means nothing to the free market.

If Global businesses – such as GE for example – capture this business – which they are likely to do if the experience in other sectors is anything to go by and the rules of capitalism remain the same – they will locate their facilities in the place where they can be most competitive. And that will be China unless US wages fall.

Sorry – for the Republicans and their adherence to the free market principles and Globalization – this is what you get when free markets principles are followed

Globalization is not eco-friendly. The smaller your economic footprint, the better for the environment and for the national economy.
