The efficient market question is somewhat related to CN0OC. If a foreign company (CNOOC) wants to pay a higher price than a domestic company (Chevron), and the U.S. blocks this transaction, is the price for the company "efficient"? (admittedly, the possibility of a 0% loan available to CNOOC and not to a U.S. bidder may complicate the "higher price" comparison. There may have been other differences in the offers). What is the "risk free" rate in China?

The CNOOC situation raises interesting questions. In general, what are your thoughts regarding which industries should be protected for natl security reasons vs. which should not? (shipbuilding, food production, airlines, etc). Why? On airlines: i was not necessarily going to foreign ownership yet there are advantages to this.

TWA got acquired by American? American showed business savvy on this - purchase and integration? (it has been in the WSJ?) As a result, American is more resilient during a shock (vs. other hub-and-spoke carriers).

I find little disagreement on the economic question, yet I don't feel Becker and Posner properly weighed the importance of balancing our foreign policy, human rights, and security interests with our economic ones.

It may be that we can effect our goals more efficiently with more economic ties, but it may also be true that our foreign policy and humantarian interests are undercut, rather than strengthened, by these sorts of entanglements. It seems to me a makes a middle way more likely (China gives a bit, and so does the USA), but if the "middle way" is unacceptable for security or humantarian reasons, are we right to reject it?

on randomness, business savvy, bad luck, or challenge-seeking behavior: what do you think of leaving the oil industry in the early 2000s and joining the airline industry? (what has happened subsequently). Inverse labor arbitrage?

Shdn't government promote Christianity if most of the voters want it to do so? Non-Christians of course have the freedom to move to a non-Christian country should they find it too burdensome.

Sometimes we have to make a choice between risk (war,even the division of way of thinking)and economy(money),but,first of all(before that),we have to make sure that whether they come to what you defined before.

There is a void in thinking that reduces all decisions to market efficiency - a corallary would be that the shortest route through a strange city is the most efficient until one learns that they are smack in the middle of a high crime ghetto. There are other considerations to make -nothing operates in a vaccumn -including economic absolutes.
