Jason, I believe that every thing balances out, so go ahead and protect all the buildings you want. However, do not be surprised when things don't turn out the way you had hoped for. In my experience, the best way to help yourself, is to help others first. It seems counterintuitive, but it works like a charm.

The more Hamilton weakens itself, and allows business to have its way, the stronger the city will get. Ireland has a corporate tax rate of 12.5%, so one would assume they are being taken advantage of by big corporations. The truth is that their per capita income is 50% greater than both the U.S. and Canada's. Their generosity to business has been rewarded with high wage jobs for its citizens.

Hamilton has attacked business for over fifty years now, and the negative effects are obvious. Why don't we do the opposite and start catering to businesses, the effects will be a huge increase in jobs, wages, and quality of life.

It's as easy as following the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".
