What fucking Universe do you inhabit? It must be the one where the obvious does not exist.
Please show me the nation that engaged in protectionist policies to the betterment of their economy or the benefit of their citizens.
If protectionism never worked, why in the hell have so many nations done it? And are doing it as we speak.
The degree that China indulges in protectionist measures today are a whole lot less than what they had indulged in prior to its shift to following capitalist principles. China is doing a lot better because they are not indulging in protectionism and have opened up to trade.
China sure the hell is indulging.
Rather American business is saddled with structural cost disadvantages because of the costs of complying with regulations, taxes, and higher energy costs.
We don't and we are getting our lunch ate, that is, if you are a working American.
As I have already showed on The Factory of Selective Moral Outrage, by Victor Davis Hanson thread that is patently false.
This cheap offshored labor is enriching Communists and American corporations and hurting our own people.
My beliefs are based on and have been confirmed by empirical evidence.
Only a Con would love that, and try to prove otherwise. Your beliefs are contrary to common sense.
America is the leading manufacturer in the world and is the leading exporter of manufactured goods in the world. The decline in those employed in the manufacturing sector, which has been going on since the 50s, has nothing to do with out sourcing or off shoring and is a decline that is also seen in other countries including China.
In my Universe if you allow manufacturing to move the jobs that helped create the worlds largest middle class, the middle class loses what created it and substains it.
:rolleyes: What is simple is that you don’t know what your talking about and are unwilling to do the required research to alleviate yourself of your ignorance in economics or history and are much more invested in protecting your ideological beliefs.
Deceptively simple. Only a Con would believe otherwise. But you guys are dead ass wrong and just will never admit it. A problem of egos.
