Interesting but one thing really struck me.
They are all swallowing Trump's claim that he will with some magical stroke of his presidential pen repatriate all those lost jobs.
People ask Sanders how he expects to accomplish his promises. Well, I would suggest asking Trump that. And not taking bullshit generalizations and pompous pronouncements as an answer.
Most economists will agree that NAFTA and many other free trade deals are a net benefit to all parties. Maybe, I don't believe it but maybe Trump could help SC, but how much would his changes hurt other areas of the country?

The one problem with allowing the repatriation at a low tax rate is if those corporations do not use the funds to invest in America. If they use some of it to continue the putrid share buyback programs that have propped the market up, or invest it offshore.
Having said that, the repatriation should be allowed at a low tax rate. I would encourage a strong law that limits the incestuous nature that is the modern board-of-directors, wherein people are allowed to serve on many boards.
And lowering the corporate tax rate to 10% - 15% would be a smart move, that would encourage investment in America. Heck, do away with the corporate tax altogether.
