Caterpillar’s Problem With Peoria: Why an American icon is looking beyond Illinois for its future

    Wall Street Journal (via Google): “Just over 100 ago, the company we know as Caterpillar began building track-type tractors at a plant on the banks of the Illinois River.

Part of the answer has to do with the unvirtuous circle created when organized labor—public as well as private—forgets it has an interest in a growth-friendly environment.”

    Card.

Are our leaders are truly proud of similar ‘victories’? The fact that China has become an economic power, allows them to ignore so shamefully the human rights?
