Rob Sobhani on Corporations
But we need to do more. State government policies should be made more pro-business. For example, even a modest reduction in our 8.25% corporate tax rate should be enacted to inspire companies to take a second look at relocating to Maryland.
We also need to work harder to support the businesses that are already here. Maintaining a vibrant manufacturing sector must be a priority for our state.
Those who are critical of capitalism--I call it "savage capitalism"--point out that many people in the middle class and lower middle class are left behind with little to no chance to increase their standard of living. And then there are those like billionaires Bill Gates &Warren Buffet who believe that capitalism should not leave those who are weaker behind. Capitalism, they argue, must have a conscience.
America needs capitalism with a conscience: a system in which every American has a level playing field in which to prosper. Groups such as "Occupy Wall Street" should bring these legitimate grievances into the halls of Congress.
