"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
—Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
—Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth

Comment: Businesses will never miss an oportunity to make profit, even though their ultimate goal is consistently HIGHER profits.
Conclusion : They will not leave or close just because the profit margin is less. Sure they want 100 million in profit but they will NOT pass up 10 million in profit if it is to be had.
