The following data was screened earlier today on CNN's program ' In the Arena '
US Multinational Corporations - emploment changes 2000 - 20009
USA .............................. a net reduction of 2,900,ooo.
Other countries .............a net gain of 2,400,ooo
It would seem that generous tax and related breaks are not helping to retain jobs in the US by this group of companies .
Any comments ? No bashing , please.

It's because those who control this country (billionaires and corps) can not see beyond their own pocket books. Outsourcing, down-sizing, right-sizing, job and pension eliminations, higher HC premiums, Co-pays...next up major wage reductions. It seems that the billionaires do not want others to achieve their same level of financial success and security-all rather third worldish, IMO-
