Is corporate welfare justified?
Absolutely not. There is no reason to allow US companies to set up fake "shell" companies off-shore in order to avoid paying taxes. Don't get me started on this... It makes me rant
I have no idea.
What is corporate welfare? I'm not familiar with the concept.
Depends on the extent of it and the potential for commuity return. A tax break for a large company that could be anywhere I can kind of see, a new stadium that won't provide many jobs and if successful actually makes its money off the community rather than adds to its economy doesn't need or deserve it.
When taxpayers also benefit.
it is, because it would hurt the country more to let the corporation go
under. The Chrysler bailout years ago helped a lot of people in my area
as well as the Detroit-area economy in general. I think there have to
be strings attached, though. There has to be a payback of the money and
there have to be efforts to move the corporation towards efficiency or
would like to think corporate welfare is justified. it is there to help
out people when they are down.
