    and here i though that corporations were just put upon and heavily taxed by federal taxes that they had become so weak that they could barely move their heads, let alone invest in the US or to create jobs (aren’t they suppose to be the job creators, or so we are told any way)

    I just finished Fragile By Design: The Political Origins of the Banking Crisis & Scarce Credit. This was an excellent book by two Republican academics. I’m currently reading Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty by Daron Acemoglu and Ames A Robinson. I’m a little pas halfway thru and it’s already the best book on debvelopment I’ve ever read.
