Americans are responsible for that, not corporations. As a truck driver here in the Cleveland area, I've witnessed company after company leave Ohio. Some for southern states to break up the unions and others out of the country altogether to escape unions, taxation and regulations. None of those companies wanted to leave. But because of global competition, they had no choice.<quoted text> and just like the " economic recovery and un employment numbers, we only can lie about that on paper.
U.S. corporate taxes that were actually paid (the effective rate) fell to a 40 year low of 12.1 percent in fiscal year 2011, despite corporate profits rebounding to their pre-Great Recession heights.

If corporations are people too than they are bad people who had a chance to raise the standard of living for the world. Instead they would like to see the bulk of uor population brought down to chinas standards.
Companies care much less about profit than they do growth. Or to put it another way, let's say you got a hold of a lot of money. Create your own scenario how you came into this wealth. Now you want to do the responsible thing with this money, so you research the market and find two companies that you are considering investments.
Both have conservative growth. One company has a 3.5% growth rate. The other 4.7%. Which company are you going to invest in? Before you answer, consider that the 3.5% growth company grosses 75 million per year, and the 4.7% growth company grosses 5 million a year. Does their gross earnings affect your decision? Of course it doesn't. You are concerned about your money and how it will grow--not the gross dollar amount of the company.
Since you feel that way as an investor with serious money, it's reasonable to assume other investors feel the same way. It's the job of the CEO to have favorable growth in their company so they can attract investors just like you.
