if corporations move their markets as well as their production elsewhere American politicians won't have sponsors.

As long as Americans (or American funds) remain the major shareholders and foreign investors use US based financial firms, the corporations can move their production and even sieges anywhere is convenient (in fact, they have been doing so for quite a long time), it doesn't matter. US politicians will still have sponsors.

I don't know who you're quoting here but it isn't this commentary.  Formal "U.S." corporations retain marketing and often other functions in the U.S., and political influence is a function of marketing.  That actually makes my point, following Klein: the corporations are hollow.

I agree with you. I was answering (and quoting) Ted's comment above.
