Startpage pulls results from Google trough an anonymous proxy so you don't get targeted results, ixquick aggregates the best results still trough a proxy from multiple search engines

I have to admit, I think Leonidas' achievement is probably greater. You see, these days they have a gold medal for all the different distances in swimming, different styles etc. Back then it was probably just "swimming" and that was pretty much it. So most likely Leonidas had to be very good at several things to get twelve crowns.

Back then the competition was garbage too so it evens out.

What makes you think the competition was garbage? Sure, it probably wasn't something they did professionally, but neither did Leonidas in that case.

The video comparison between 1960 olympics and 2004 or whatever it was.
#59 - corporations (08/19/2016) [-]
Ye, I imagine there was also a difference between 1960 and anything BC.
Considering how important it was back then it may have been more than just hobbyists in there. I mean, right now we don't stop all wars just so people could travel to the games safely. Admittedly there is a big difference in stopping all the wars back then when it only involved Greece, but it still says something about how important it was back then.

While I agree completely that such markups are insane and unnecessary, I don't think the people applying them really care. They're not going to decrease profits simply because Trump tells them to, they'll move completely before they do that. Manufacturing their goods in the US may be morally right, but it would hurt their international market incredibly, which is something they'll avoid at all costs. The US may be their biggest single market, but its not the only one they need to account for.

Then good luck keeping your costs within reason when you move your business to China and have to put up with a high import Tariff. It would kill all your reason to move out of the country. The US is the biggest market there is unless you count the ENTIRE EU, and even then it's close. Why put up with lower worker efficiency, and prices for the extra shipping when you now also have to put up with a massive import tariff, on top of Americans semi boycotting (some consumers won't buy Chinese products, some will) foreign products? It would end up being much more financially sound to move businesses back to the US. Once they're back here, they'll pull jobs away from the service sector and back into manufacturing, which makes the demand for labor higher in America, which will alleviate many of the problems facing undervalued workers in the U.S. You won't have to raise the minimum wage because if you're worth anything your company will pay you what you're worth.
#89 - imbehindu (05/01/2016) [-]
Manufacturing goods in China is far more worthwhile than in the US, because even if worker efficiency is a quarter of what it is in the US your costs are still halved. China is the largest single market, the EU is the most valuable, and throwing up import tariffs will only start a trade war that would fuck everything up, tariffs are a 2 way street and are frowned upon thoroughly, the US can't just abandon the Washington consensus and decide that because they're the US everything will be ok. A trade war with China is far too great a thing for either party to come off well from it.

The only thing that the Chinese have that we want is rare earth elements. And they gouge us for those anyways.

We WANT China because they make things cheaper, but China NEEDS us because we are their economy.
#92 - imbehindu (05/01/2016) [-]
You'll lose every export you could ever have sent them, you lose every good they sell you. Even if it were only short term, the suffering that would cause wouldn't be worth it. You're not China's only market, they sell to the planet.
#80 - tjubox (05/01/2016) [-]
Well, then it's up to the company to decide whether a 35% import tarriff is more cost efficient than moving manufacturing. For example, even though the iPhone has 40% market share in the US, 70% of the world's iPhones are sold in the US. That's the beauty of the system, corps will be free to make their own choices.
