Reprint: All we hear anymore is the world is a market place and we need to learn to compete globally, but let me ask you why are our imports so far out of whack with our exports?
It’s simple . . . The marketplace that gives them the best return is in the U.S. Why? Because today we are still the wealthiest country in the world with the largest number of dollars earmarked on non essentials. Now does it make any sense that the jobs are going elsewhere? Maybe but the theory is short term and no one is looking long term.
If all the high paying jobs go away, what will we buy those non essentials with? Or better yet who will buy their product? If American Companies outsource there labor for cheaper dollars where will they sell their products? Will they sell them in those countries where the get the cheap labor? Hardly their income isn’t enough.
We have become a Capitalist Country run by business and business doesn’t have the sense to come out of the rain, unless they can make a profit by doing so . . . Once they didn’t see the paper companies didn’t think replanting trees were in their best interests . . . Sure if you don’t think you’re going to be in the same business thirty years later maybe its not or maybe your thoughts are just too narrow? You figure.
. . . A year later has anything changed?
The price of gas is at all time highs, why, green house emissions? Running out? Or what if our powers have decided that it’s not in our best interests anymore to be reliant on oil from everyone else?
And that’s the only thing that makes any sense. But if that was the case, don’t you think we would be building up manufacturing in this country? Still we are dependent on cheaper wages trying to compete with those who don’t make nothing from the products they build. We forget that China is a Communist Country and they don’t play by the same rules as a country based on Capitalism. And still we have no fence; no one has been fined for hiring illegals. None have been sent back and drug trafficking in up.
Toyota was the leader in cars sales for a quarter in the U.S . . . Americans are buying foreign vehicles and the dollars are going somewhere other than to U.S. car manufacturers. Many media outlets state the usual, serves them right for still building those big cars. That’s what we said in the seventies when there wasn’t enough gas. And then we wanted those big pigs once again and everyone was driving suburban, vans and SUV’s. And the middle east wants more for a barrel of oil and the gas companies want bigger profits and the consumer is squeezed at the pumps. And your government is just giving it lip service.
And everything seems to be failing apart. Another presidential policy gone astray, it happened in 1968 and it’s happening again.
