And that's why India, Pakistan and China have largely been receiving the production industry for the west. The fact is that those states have found that, to be sufficiently competitive, they must provide a welcoming economic culture, which in very simple terms means less costs for capitalist industry.
These lowered costs always mean fewer benefits, lower real wages, and weaker worker rights legislation.
Your point that reducing government costs to corporate entities encourages corporate presence is absolutely correct. It is largely why Virgina has done so well, by comparison, during the economic crisis. But indulging corporations will only delay the inevitable, that is a more acute reduction of real wages and benefits across the entire labor market.
In other words, we're fucked, the state and economic echelon are the ones doing the fucking, and the only thing we will ever be able to do to change the trend is to demand the fruits of our labor, directly and by force.
