Republican/Tea Party stooges = anti-middle class American.

Cut the value of the dollar by half again and imports will be snuffed out because no one will buy them. And real domestic production (that is, goods made from American component by American citizens) will start up again. If the people actually have jobs, the deficit will shrink unless we blow it invading someone else.

No solid education and no trained employees. I’m for as many people getting a college education THAT WANT ONE! However, there’s one kind of career area that can’t be off-shored–craft labor like, electricians, plumbers, auto body work, mechanics, a/c and heating installation and maintenance, etc. “Blue Collar” labor is not a low class job as many propagandists say. I’ve heard “Educrats” talk down “Blue Collar” work as if it’s something like leprosy. My eldest son is a commercial plumber. Earns a good salary. The company that supplied my pellet stove has employees that earn good salaries and benefits. Jobs, Yes, but Education Yes.

That would cut into the upper level management’s salaries and benefits.

Maybe investors are more important to the government…….first priority, despite all the hoopla about ‘debts, jobs’.

then, they need to find customers overseas as well

we’ve been sold out

We in corporate America have spent the last 10 years shipping every possible job overseas. When is the Fed and the White House going to realize that. Printing money just allows us to invest in more overseas operations.

every business in the world is shedding human labor, in favor of automated productivity gains……..even outsourcing will become obsolete.

eventually, every employee that gets replaced, loses income and purchasing power.

that person is a customer, that no longer spends money…..

that effect causes businesses to fail or become more competitive

it’s a snake eating it’s own tail, Ouroboros

Somehow only the North Americans have to pay up the world prices. Slap some kind of tarrifs on these cheap Chinese imports. Competition is good, but when the Chineese work for $80 dollars a month there is no competition. When I buy I look for the made in USA or Canada sticker and I am seeing less and less of those.
So Mr.WTO what you gona do?
