How can we use free markets to control bad behavior?

Looking forward to getting this book on my Kindle app (on two devices that sync!).

I have read a lot of the reviews and can't find the question to one issue. How can states, that provide charters for corporations, ensure they are a positive economic factor in exchange for their state charter.

Here is what I mean. I work for a very big corporation that is making a lot of money (in the billions per quarter). While the company would like less regulation and lower taxes, it is doing very well. However, I just had to lay of a well paid American and transfer the job to China (our communist friends) so we could "improve cost efficiency". I just ruined a fine American's life. Now some might thing that the savings will help grow the company and result in more Americans being hired at higher wages and it just is bad for ol' Jeff - but he'll magically get a better paying job anyway (hopefully before his savings run out and he has to pull his kids out of college). But I can tell you the savings will mostly go into executive compensation or money to buy other companies, combine and "reduce redundancies (Americans)".

Seems that since states give charters to corporations that they should have every right to say that that if they are a net negative for the state (sending jobs to communist states), they should possibly get their charter revoked. Has anyone ever done that?

How about it Governor?

Go Rick Go

Go Rick Go. The country (I pray) is finally ready to impliment the tough love policies needed to begin fixing the problems we have created for ourselves over the past 20+ years.

good job

Jon Stewart is unabashedly liberal, but Perry did a good job here controlling the discussion and answering Stewart's admittedly good questions. I wish more political shows went like that one, as opposed to screaming back and forth at each other.

Rick Perry YEAH

WE ARE THE BEST STATE IN THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE OF RICK PERRY. HE HAS BROKEN DOWN THE BURCRATIC NONSENSE IN OUR STATE. I THINK IF WASHINGTON LISTENS TO HIM AND MODELED THE GOVERNMENT LIKE TEXAS, THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE BETTER OFF. I MOVED FROM NY 29 YEARS AGO AND I WOULD NOT CONSIDER ANY OTHER STATE TO LIVE IN BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOMS THAT TEXAS OFFERS. THERE ARE MORE SELF-EMPLOYED AND SMALL BUSINESS HERE THEN ANYWHERE ELSE. OUR TAXES ARE REASONABLE AND AFFORDABLE. AMERICA WAKE UP TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY GIVE THE POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE.

Texas and Freedom

I agree completely with the author from NY. My husband and I have traveled extensively around the world with our careers. Texas truly stands out as a beacon of liberty and individualism. Neither of us are from Texas. We have now lived here since 1996 and have been very proud to call Texas our home.

We have a Governor who believes in state rights, rights of the individual and the free market system. How does it get better than that?
