Comments on: First 100 Days: Manufacturing a dream and a recovery http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/01/19/manufacturing-a-dream-and-a-recovery/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Harry_Dingey http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/01/19/manufacturing-a-dream-and-a-recovery/#comment-28828 Sat, 06 Feb 2010 11:32:17 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=1316#comment-28828 I CAN CREATE 15 MILLION JOBS ALMOST OVER NIGHT right here in America !!!

Here is my Job creation Computations:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++
Total USA Imports in 2006:
———————————-
$ 2,211.7 billion —– Total Imports.
$ 309.4 billion less — (minus spent on Imported Crude Oil)
————————————————–
$ 1,902.3 billion / 30 billion=63.41 million jobs lost from Imports. ======================================== ==========

Total USA Exports in 2006:
———————————-
$ 1,451.7 Billion / 30 billion=48.39 million jobs America gained from Exports

If USA Pulls out of NAFTA and WTO right now:
USA would absolutely gain a total of 63.41 million Jobs by Manufacturing all IMPORTS right here in the USA.

So, 63.41 minus 48.39 = 15.02 million NET JOBS GAIN. But, a lot of Exports must be purchased in the USA. That would mean an even larger number of jobs created in America than I have estimated.

My calculation means an ABSOLUTE 15.02 million Jobs gained if the rest of the world did not buy even one penny of USA EXPORTS.

SO MOTE IT BE. . . . .

Do you truly want to help straighten out the United States Government now? Then, copy and post this article everyplace on the Internet you can post.

He just wants to take control of it. I think everyone could have gotten behind a sizeable stimulus of infrastructure projects, Republicans and Democrats. Our infrastructure is crumbling and what better time to repair it than when millions of manufacturing and construction jobs have been lost. Unfortunately feminist groups threw a fit because these “shovel ready” project jobs would have gone mainly to men. Instead they insisted that we focus on “social infrastructure” and spend more on education and health care where women work. Nevermind that these two industries have added jobs in this recession. Obama and Congress don’t care about helping the hard hit areas of our economy. They just want to give away money to their favorite interest groups who will donate to their reelection campaigns and solidify their power base.

There aren’t enough Americans that will pay extra to buy products made by companies that must pay US minimum wages, meet EPA requirements, OSHA requirements, and all other US legal requirements. Most of these requirements have humanitarian value (or we would not have them). The answer? Apply tariffs to all products (and components of those products) that “correct” the cost of the product so that it would have the same price tag it would have if it were made in a country with the same legal requirements as US manufacturers must survive. By the same token, we should agree to have our exports subject to tariffs where our minimum wage is less than theirs, and where our pollution controls & safety standards do not measure up to those of the country to which we export. This proposed tariff system would truly level the playing field for all countries and competition could take place where it counts… in product quality, design, features, reliability, etc. Wouldn’t this make more sense than rewarding the countries with the worst standards? I think so. Would it add bureaucracy? Sure… some. Would it pay back a hundred fold? Absolutely.

Do you know if America just stopped exporting everything to the rest of the world and just produced everything America now IMPORTS?

America would automatically Experience a net increase in newly created jobs to the tune of well over $760 Billion dollars of new jobs every year.

All these Stupid Globalist American Politicians tell us:

“Oh no American can not turn to protectionist because look at all the jobs America would lose from the reduction in the world buying all the American produced goods”.

That statement is hilarious.

The only Goods America has produced in the last 20 years is Political Horse S-H-I-T..

What Rock have all these Globalist American Politicians been living under for the last 20 years..haha

The International Trade number is either Positive number or Negative number.

If it is a positive number, this means America is exporting more American Produced Goods and Services than America Imports from the rest of the world. This is very good.

If it is a negative number, this means America is Importing more Produced Goods and Services from the rest of the world than America Exports. This is very bad.

In the Above table America is in last place NO. 188. That is very, very Bad.

188. United States $ -568,800,000,000 2008 EST.

This trade number has decreased a little because of the latest Economical down turn. This Trade Deficit number was $ -760 billion dollars just before the latest down turn.

America Imports more goods from the rest of the world than any other country in the whole world.

America may even Import more goods than all the other countries of the world combined.

That is why all the other countries of the world keep worrying about America turning to protectionist International Trade Polices.

Because they all know that is exactly what a politician would do if he cared about the financial health of his country.

I was Industrial Engineer for Rockwell International for 30 years. Dealing with Production Numbers is exactly what I have done all my life.
The American Politicians are Destroying America by sending all the good paying America jobs off shore.

America will soon be a third world country.

As you can see, America has the worse International Trade Deficit than any country in the entire world.

WE are in last place.

This is why America is leading the world into a world wide DEPRESSION.

Thanks to them Damn Stupid American Globalist Politicians.

READ IT and WEEP..

Why is the American Politicians Sending all of the highest paying jobs off shore to China when American workers have an unemployment rate approaching 10%.

Why does the American Politicians care more about giving all the high paying jobs to the Chinese workers than they do to American Workers?

The most Important Question is why we Americans elect those A-S-S H-O-L-E-S back in office.

We deserve exactly what we get.

We are our own children and grand-children lives up forever.

Thank you Grandpa..

A “service” economy, which is becoming more and more obvious to people living in the real world, is nothing but one parasite sucking life from another until they’re all dead. When are the “experts on the economy” going to grasp this reality?
Which countries are becoming more and more wealthy? Those which are manufacturing real products. A guy who is servicing something, like your furnace, although necessary, is not producing wealth; he/she is only taking money from your pocket.
Fire these “service economy” advocates who are blinded by their theories and will not grasp reality until their country is in ashes around their feet and they’re wondering why the grocery stores, hardwares, and other stores are sitting empty and they’re standing hungry and naked, and asking: “How did this happen?” Duh! Then, maybe they’ll get a clue!

Under current conditions, there is too much ‘leakage’ in our economy for our economic ship ever to be completely ‘bailed out’.

We talk so much about ‘energy independence’, especially as the prices of oil skyrocketed. That can happen again. It is not just oil – it is steel, computers, cell phones, clothing, computer software, automobiles (even those made here) …

Furthermore, our corporate leaders are selling out to foreign investors. Utility companies, chemicals, plastics, computers, electronics, … are all basically now controlled by those foreigners who are pocketing the profits rather than reinvesting here.

Reports have shown steep declines in corporate investment here in the United States, too. That investment was supposed to happen primarily because of the false notion that massive tax cuts would funnel back into the economy. Clearly, that ‘trickle down’ theory has failed one more time.

Our ‘stimulus’ funds will similarly end up in the banks of India and China and Saudi Arabia and…

… and we’ll end up going to them to beg for more funding of our burgeoning federal deficit.

Unfortunately, the onus rests with corporate America which is both reluctant to make goods here at much higher costs and to make investments in expansion here.

The ‘bailout’ funds are being improperly handled, too, especially indicated by the massive funding required to make a corporate behemoth out of the Pfizer merger with Wyeth. The banks got our tax dollars to feed their greed, not to extend more credit to the “Joe the plumbers” among us (Take that, John McCain!).

Are we going to be as economically dependent as we were in 1776?

Time and corporate proactive trend reversal will tell.

And the unions need to get realistic about what the workers can afford. When ANYTHING gets priced beyond the competition, the business goes elsewhere. High pay and tremendous benefits mean squat when you can’t hold a job.

we have no choice but to restrict all imports–yes i know the arguments for not doing it but, the reality we have to use our labor and our dollars here-makes no sense to export them, we are going to have massive amounts of unemployed people for a long time–and they will have to have income and hope that things are going to get better which I doubt–you need a paycheck that reflects an increase in wealth–throw as much money as it takes to recreate our steel industry and our clothing industry basid on products produced in our country

See the Ford manufacturing plant in Brazil. Fantastic….and no union to prevent it from making better cars cheaper without strikes or loss of down time from human issues. We are not going to ever be able to compete manufacturing with cheaper labor countries with talented skilled labor, so we have to CHANGE and allow the corporations to use more productive methods.
