The Economist magazine held an online debate and poll on this topic: Do multinational corporations have a duty to maintain a strong presence in their home countries?
Harry Moser, Reshoring Initiative, was invited to write in support of that proposition.
Jagdish Bhagwati, Professor of Economics and Law, Columbia University, was invited to write in opposition to the proposition.
The moderator from The Economist, Tamzin Booth, was very surprised at the resulting 54-46 win.
She also then tries to explain the results away, blaming “angst”.
