I love when foreign companies by domestic ones and turn them around

Like Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory Holding’s buying of the legendary Beam company, producer of American classics like Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark, is expected to be a $16 billion deal. Suntory is buying a majority of Beam shares at 25% higher that the stock’s closing price.

Free trade works because companies are able to seek support beyond their borders and crowdsource, in effect, to seek the most optimum solution at the lowest cost.
