Bumble, many of those companies employ a vast number of Americans right here in the good old USA. Don't you think it is a bit drastic to refuse to buy their stock, and sell off shares, in protest? That is just making a bad situation worse, not better.

Teresa Heinz is worth over 4b. And has 56 operations around the world
and only less then 30 here in the US.

Now why would anybody with an agenda add to the list the wife
of John Kerry?

Oh yea.. Busted.


Btw Bumble,
Where did you find that list? Some anti-American rag?

Not only would boycotting those companies F-the US economy, but also
many other countries around the world creating mass unemployment worldwide.

That just shows the desperation of the left. Willing to screw the world
over for their own personal power status..


Try thinking outside your little box.

To boycott that list, we would all need to move into grass huts, gather berries for food and initiate a global barter system. No thanks.

Lou Dobbs list.

Heinz isn't listed on there because her foreign companies are foreign companies. She is not taking American jobs and moving them overseas.

You dolts are obfuscating the point. When you give money to support the operations of companies taking our jobs overseas, you are only supporting that process. Make the companies that keep American jobs here receive a reward for it and that will help keep jobs here and help our economy.

So if we boycott those companies, how will we play EQ or post on message boards?

There's also more than outsourcing at work tho. I know that for tariff/taxing or other regulations, some places like the EU prefer to buy from companies that have a manufacturing source in that region. That's not really the same as sending a job overseas for cheaper labor; it's allowing the company as a whole to better access a market for their product.

And s was pointed out, some of those companies are major US employers. Intel for example is the largest employer in Oregon, and also has sizable operations in Arizona, New Mexico, California and Massachusettes, most of which are still expanding in production capacity and total jobs (if not as fast as in the 90s). They also have facilities in Ireland and Israel, both of which also continue to expand, and in Costa Rica, China, Philipines, Japan, India and probably more. To say that they're outsourcing and killing US jobs is a bit of a push.

Sure she is. Ketchup has a long (Years) shelf life.

What about every company in America that invests in those companies?
And the companies outside of America that invest in those companies?
And the jobs that would be lost *not only in America* worldwide because of this boycott?

What about the trillions of dollars that come back to America from these companies?

See,
The point I'm making is that America's economy isn't just America's economy.
We are the richest nation on earth and the economy of the world rely's on
our worth. Taking away worldwide investments would bring the world
economy to it's knees. The entire world market would crash.

And what about the world economy? Do we just make America Isolationists?

What you've read is nothing but a bill of goods being sold by someone that has no clue
about the world market.

Give us a link. I could find it myself, but I want you to provide it.




GOD BLESS AMERICA

I didn't say to boycott the products or the companies. I said to take out any investments in them. If they see a correlation between stock price and outsourcing they will stop and realize that staying in country makes better business sense.
Heinz owning foreign companies has nothing at all to do what I've suggested. Why is this being politicized? The way to hurt a company is to withhold investing in it. Reward the companies that stay in state and they become more powerful at the defectors expense. It doesn't hurt our overall economy one bit and hurts the companies who screw their employees.

Hey I agree with Bumbleroot!

Don't get me wrong, I no where near agree with the reason for doing it, but the method is correct. If you want to try and deter/penalize companies from/for certain actions don't invest in nor buy its products.

This is not an issue for legislation, it's an issue for the markets to decide through investors and consumers.

I have to agree with Vireil on this one. I see Home Depot and Delta on that list as well. I have stock in both. Those two companies right there are little money makers. They go up and down and up and down. Do you realize how many people Home Depot and Delta employ right here in the US????
You say Heinz isn't on the list because the Heinz companys overseas are foreign companys. You could say the same for Home Depot and Delta and probably 98% of the companies listed.

That list might have some credibility if it was a whole lot smaller and only listed the companies that have shut down in the US completely and moved their operations totally overseas.

If you were loosen money cus our economy sucks and you can make more money in america selling your kids for crack money to homosexuals ( i been reading to many of Z's post I think) than actually getten your average american these days between ages of 16 and 30 to stay at a job longer than a year some even a few months for they move on....yeah i would move to places where education was a standard than just a piece of paper. But were the unapproachable west. We dont give a shit. oh and no offense about the homo kid thing. Those are just Z's kids really that do that.
