24. Understood and thanks for the link as you are right as rain regarding the effects of myopia here
But it is true as well and we know it, that 1) corporations and not just America's need to be far more responsive to the peoples they've left in their dust, and 2 - no-less than two) that there is far more cache involved for a socialistic, people-based governmental model to be seen running oligarchs of 'the 400 families' and corporate overlords down the road...maybe cheaper too than laying out the resources to develop areas or clean them up.

I'd be making clean-up and restitution a very big part of any such negotiations you bet!
