I have dinner on my shirts
Yeah I don't know but I'm pretty sure it was going on long before NAFTA.
When there's money to be made people find out about it and do it too.
Like Bain Capitol and Romney he didn't invent that scheme, he jumped in on it.
Well that country would do the same with our exports and you shopping at WalMart will be the one paying the tariff.
What you recommend has been done before with bad consequences.
We are the 2nd biggest economy in the world. Businesses want to make money they will sell to us. If they don't, no big loss. If the U.S. don't make it I really don't need it. We don't need other countries to sell their junk to us. China steals other companies tech and rebrands it as their own. Great trading partner. (Sarcasm)
I'm not a economist, its way over my head.
Just because I don't understand international trade I can't say its bad for us.
Are all our politicians simply on the dole or do they have some sense of responsibility to the people here?
And don't forget many of our business's sell their products overseas, they would be smashed.
Sorry,I couldn't resist..
We lived without free-trade way before free-trade started correct? I'm not asking you for a list but would love to know what we actually export other than grain and planes? Remember, most of our products are not made in this country. If it is made in their country they don't have to pay Tarriffs. It's just like Honda and Toyota for example. They moved here to bypass tarriffs, employing many americans.
Wow! You're willing to join me and turn against Dem Policies and call for Capitalism? Never saw that coming!
This is the first USA Election where every candidate is against Capitalism...
End the EPA,Income Tax, Dodd Frank,etal.
How is it going to get worse? Other than your illegal gardner, housekeeper, cook,driver being sent back cause they get paid under the table/no taxes. Or your drugs being more expensive due to a bottle neck at the wall or paying more for a hooker because the cheap ones were rounded up and deported or cause you want to be a liberal in good standing
Or Hilly selling America for a few pieces of silver or selling Fla to the Saudis where would you move too-Ca.?
I think you must have hit your head with one of those box's.
I can't tell you SAC75 but once in a while someone will mention that there is actually a lot of goods produced in this country and that exports are important to us still.
Ya i cant give you no hard numbers either. Just know our wages are going the wrong direction and it needs to stop.
Your right about that, what I don't think is fair is Obama getting the blame for it.
We have been on the losing end since the end of the seventies.
Nobody seemed to notice until the economy crashed.
Then without our house as a ATM machine we realize we aren't doing so well.
The roots of that go back decades, maybe just a unavoidable consequence of world wide competition.
maybe capitalism needs serious tweaking.
Don't know but do know it's going to take some thinking out of the box by all.
That's ok our "beloved politicians" aren't economists either, most aren't even business people have never ran as much as a lemonade stand, yet they are in charge of policy
Making a govt with impossible goals like; "everyone gets equal pay".."tax the rich"...
...Just adds to
..and no one cares.. That's what puzzles me.
There policy's and reg's kill business NOT grOuth..lol..."Call A Pro Dumbazz"
Obama care requirements stop biz from growing over 50 employees. EPA regs stop expansion. High corporate taxes seize profits. Dodd Frank made investing difficult. Obama, like FDR,took a recession, added unnecessary regulations, and created a long Depression.
That clothing line has already been patented.
Printed up for a Trump win in November,
I hope they didn't invest their entire fortune on the project.
