Google is a Public US company, and is in the main financed by US Pension Plans. It has an obligation to it’s stockholders to run the business in an effective, competent and appropriate manner.
Therefore the following question begs to be asked; ” Does the establishing of a $50 million dollar research centre in Tel Aviv, paying extravagant salaries to Israeli workers, when such an operation could have been located in Bangladesh for example, at a fraction of the cost, fall within the remit of conducting business in an effective, competent and appropriate manner? ”
In this sudden rush to Israel, Google is in good (depending on how you see the world) company. IBM, Sun Systems, Microsoft, Intel and others have all chosen Israel as a location in which to set up operations. Financially, this just does not make any sense. Furthermore, why is a country made up overwhelmingly of Russian immigrants, with an average IQ of 90 such an attractive destination for these corporate giants ?
Tel Aviv is the tenth most expensive city in the world and as previously stated, salaries are high, and IQ levels not so much so, whereas Bangladesh can offer qualified hi tech workers at 1/5 of the price. It must be something of a `bitter pill` for Americans to consider that a US pension is paying some Israeli’s $150,000 a year salary, when if work must be `outsourced` the money could be more wisely spent elsewhere.
An additional abuse of the US by Israeli’s is how American Universities such as Harvard are being frequented by students from Israel, who take student loans, then after graduation, disappear back to their `homeland` never repaying the loan, again it is the US taxpayer who picks up the bill.
It is no secret that Google’s founders, Larry Page and Russian born Sergey Brin are `very` interested in the Zionist State, and have known ties there. It should also be of interest to note that these two `entrepreneurs` were financed by Andy Bechtolsheim, the Co Founder of Sun Microsystems. All three are Jewish, and all three now have operation centres in Israel.
