How Appropriate Is It For Governments To Help Drum
4/10/2018 at 7:30 AM ET
How appropriate is it for governments to help drum up business for their companies abroad? Shouldn't commerce be completely separate from politics?

(Except for pathological cases) a nation's government exists to further the physical and economic well being of that nation's citizens. The way you phrased the question even implies that line of thinking: "their companies". Because at its core politics is the allocation of power there will be variations between the political parties of just which citizens or what specific businesses benefit the most (or in more extreme political cases, benefit at all). Commerce cannot be separate from politics.

This sounds like a school question. This type of question is often asked to make students think about some subject and doesn't have a right or wrong answer. If this is a school question, the actual answer you provide is likely not as important as having that answer show that you thought about how capitalism and government work together and what is good and bad about those connections.

I am closing this question since there hasn't been much recent activity.
