environmental risks are a non concern for multinational companies that can just move both production and services elsewhere after draining/polluting an area. they are not tied to the region.
since cleaning up pollution is a cost that brings no return (unless they are bound to the region) why would they ever address them without regulations?
Environmental risks should have been reduced in economical growth since both are inverse-related
it's in reference to global warming.
many parts of the right believe getting as close to laissez-faire as possible, yet they also block any measure to get companies to clean up the pollution they create.
I am making the argument that holding both those positions is hypocritical.
All companies should be respinsible for their waste regardless if it is non-regulated capitalism or not. I do not really get the premise of the question ot the point you are trying to make.
