I found it in a PDF article entitled "Cracks_World". It was on one of the links that Anaconda provided on here a few posts back.

I do wonder if nationalized teamwork is perhaps more of an advantage than corporatized teamwork.

I mean, more competition between individual corporations leads to more advances in R&D, but also leads to the demise of certain privatized corporations putting teams of people out of work. Sort of like evolution and survival of the fittest.

Whereas forced cooperation at the national level protects the industry and thus the workers, it potentially leads to less ecconomically driven R&D but more public park type projects.

I guess, one thing that ought to be examined more closely is whether competition is even necessary for R&D. Perhaps in some instances it is while in other instances it isn't. Or maybe socialism just turns the focus of competition on corporations from other countries....I'll continue this thought later.

Oh well, some things governments do is right and other things they do is wrong. Are government made a huge mistake. When you're out, well, just make the best of it!
