Trump Notches a Win as Carrier Agrees to Keep 1,000 Jobs in U.S.

Time and time again we see governments of all stripes in Ontario and Canada taking a hands off approach and simply watch as high-paying jobs are emigrated by multinationals, hollowing out the middle-class. There was a time when a blue-collar job could feed a family and send children to university. Even CIBC has noted that - during the "golden age" of neoliberal globalization - Canada has essentially "raced to the bottom" by participating in and allowing the mobility of capital without a return on domestic investment.

Canada sees slow and steady deterioration of job quality over the last two decades: CIBC

Why are we putting up with this?

Just a thousand though. Its a good symbolic/propaganda coup. Its good for Trump when this stuff works, but personally investing in little battles like this is risky - they don't always go your way and Trump will pick fights like this and lose from time to time as well. High Risk High Reward.

Obama's made more jobs than this many times over - if we're looking at the numbers.

If the Republicans approved the infrastructure bill Obama wanted he would have made many more.

This Carrier thing shows exactly how Trump thinks he will own the negotiation table: leverage. In this case he used actual leverage with Government contracts. He is delusional in that he honestly believes that The USA will always have the upper hand.

Well this is the same thing mobile capital does: use it's power to leverage a favourable outcome. How many headlines have you seen with companies like the auto sector, manufacturing, say it has to close a factory its no longer "economical" and then point to some tax or other way to balance their books in the way they want.

Not disagreeing. Just saying that Trump is delusional because he thinks that he will always have the upper hand in every kind of negotiation.
