Are businesses forced to keep bad company?
Multinational corporations may feel a need to work with governments that tolerate, or even encourage, exploitation of people or the environment. The lessening of restrictions on trade has allowed corporations to open plants in new parts of the world. These corporations may appear to be thriving but may feel extremely vulnerable and feel a need to maximize profits through exploitation. Perhaps if some such corporations began to divest in oppressive nations governments would respond and consumers would support such companies.

Academic tenure isn't just a matter of money
The benefits of academic tenure become apparent by examining US society during the McCarthy era when it did not have this protection. M.I. Finley, an untenured ancient history professor at Rutgers University, became a victim of the McCarthy era, was eventually dismissed by Rutgers, left the country and taught in England. All this happened because Finley allegedly ran a Communist study group in the 1930s. Academic tenure protects public debate which is robust and welcomes greatly divergent points of view.
