I post this because what the NCPPR has done here is indicative of the moral bankruptcy of libertarianism, particularly the Ayn Rand faithful. It is very rare that a corporation decides to invest long term in behavior that serve the public good, but it does happen. The idea is that when you do what is good for citizens of the world in the long run, you can become more profitable in the long run.
There are plenty of examples of how this long-term thinking actually works out well. But it is antithetical to the Libertarian ideology, that selfishness is a virtue and that short-term profits ought to be the only deciding factor in any policy, be that policy in government or private enterprise.
