Multi national corporation sell out to China

So with the NBA and Activision Blizzard controversy also the entire South Park give China the middle finger what are your thoughts on the matter how can this be resolved. Should this remain people voting with their wallets or should the government interven?

This will be one of many skirmishes where multinational corporations move contrary to one or more governments. In some respect, these companies are already governments unto themselves, spanning multiple political jurisdictions. For the present time they remain subject to local political and legal systems - is it just a matter of time before they assume control and the political entities are subservient?

I’ve been watching these trends for a while, seems like it is starting to get interesting.

I think it's up to us. When you see these shady companies doing this stuff then just stop buying their stuff and make some noise too. Then the company has to chose if it's worth it to make money in china or here. I think BMW is the same too. So many cars of BMW are ruined because they try to make them appeal to china

Yup it up to us, the general consumer to say no to corporations that cave in to the Chinese government.

Like I pointed out in the Meme thread.... These corporations, athletes, and celebs are total hypocrites. The only cause they are willing to stand for is one that will not personally affect their check book or put their life physically on the line. They are only about one thing, and that is the dollar. They proven this week that all that talk about oppression and marginalized people is total BS. These hypocrites stand shoulder to shoulder with Chinese Communism and its oppressive system because it pays their bills. So what that the Chinese are shitting all over the people of Hong Kong. So what that China has "re-education camps". Hey as long as they are getting me paid I will be a good little puppet and salute when their anthem plays but I will kneel for the anthem that has given me true liberty.

Welcome to Chinese Hipocracy.

The NBA did walk back their initial response, but I generally despise the self-flagellation by multi-nationals (cough cough BMW, Mercedes).

As a shareholder I would never want the profitability of a company to hinge on the good graces of a bunch of communists.

Hows about boycott anything made in china? And not just anything. But everything. Period. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Hopefully a nationalist will produce an untraceable and well encrypted cell phone/computer company in the usa thats half as fast and half as good and half as reliable as the apple/samsung/hua-whatever companies has. I would glafly over pay for these products in order to protect democracy. Policies in china are getting retarded. Look into how its changed. Foreigners are no longer accepted or liked or free in their mainland. Ive avoided chinese products for decades and would like to cut the from my wallet to their commies pockets 100%.

Free Hong Kong please. If they go democratic then they good.

All North Americans should follow suit.

Toppleing china is easy. It starts with is and our wallets and all dollar stores n walmarts.

Make “Made In America”Great Again.

I believe the biggest impact will be 401k holder informing whatever company invest their saving that they are not permitted to invest their money with any business with ties to china.

Our good boy Lebron ought to shut up until he learns what to speak. Now the little dog is getting a lot more than what he bargained for.

Let me be clear: LeBron Jamesís comments sounded like those of a straight-up Chinese-government plant. Thatís how bad they were. They were selfish; they put his own already-stuffed pocketbook ahead of the values that all of us Americans should be championing ó especially those in positions of influence, like James, and double-especially those who, also like James, have claimed to stand for them in the past.
