Do a quick web search for articles on American companies moving headquarters and/or operations to other nations.
Discuss the reasons why the company moved. Did they move their headquarters or production capability? Was it part of a merger? Why did they move; what was their strategy? What should the U.S. do to keep these companies in the U.S., if anything? Should this company be considered a “American” company?
