rupert murdoch worried about possible u.s. protectionist policies

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

in an interview broadcast on the bbc rupert murdoch voiced concern that barack obama’s instinct might take him toward protectionism. while acknowledging that he liked him as a person, murdoch voiced concern regarding obama’s inexperience.

there’s a fairly lively comment section on murdoch’s wall street journal website concerning what a obama presidency will mean for small business owners.

asian industry is leary of possible protectionism arising under an obama administration and a democratic controlled congress.

    Rupert Murdoch is worried about himself. Individuals like Murdoch will see big tax increases (do they really need that much power and money?), and most other people will finally get a bit of a break.

    in a capitalist society, if people work hard and their hard work gets taxed away, they will work less or move their companies to another country and in the process, pass their higher tax rates onto consumers (read, middle-class) by increasing prices on consumer goods and services. econ101. the middle-class always pays.
