It’s more than just a tough economy that drives capital out of the US.  The biggest employer in my county, a mining company, recently made a large investment up in Southern Canada.  One of the main reasons they gave for going North was that there is a “mine friendly” environment up there, as opposed to the over-regulated one down here.  The green left that control America couldn’t care less about job losses, of course, but a huge number of working class jobs have been lost or never created due to their efforts.  Our mining, logging, and oil industries are shadows of what they could be.  Thank the Sierra Club and their ilk for that.
