Re: corporate conscience
And the result makes everyone richer.
Suppose your country/state/city/village had to produce everything it needed locally.
No buying Mercedes fire trucks for the airport, you need to buy trucks built in Seattle. You can't buy wheat from the mid-west so bread is expensive and you cant afford it because nobody outside your state is buying Boeings.
If you want to see the standard of living you get with self sufficiency just look at rural Bhutan.
