Some of that steel could have come from WTC1, 2, & 7.

To the victor goes the business. I hope that they made it able to withstand an 8.0 quake.

Bridge from China

I bet 10 bucks that some of that metal in that bridge will break. ;)

Thank you Von

“If another country can deliver a quality product for less money - this is to our advantage. If you don't understand this - then you might be on the wrong site supporting the wrong candidate.”
This issue seems to come up a lot on this site. Some have even said that Dr. Paul needs to dumb it down … he can’t because he sees the real issues and the real issues are complicated and need to be understood. Otherwise we would have more dumb, WTF type of post and we will end up with a Cain, Bachman or Romney.

No Problem at all

Some of the core principles of Austrian economics are 'counter-intuitive' ...

Until you take a little time to sit down, and read some quality explanations. Hazlitt. Murry Rothbard. Ron Paul himself.

Once the light bulb goes off the basic principles of Austrian economics are amazingly simple. But not at first.

So I don't expect everyone who supports Dr Paul to have done that. I do feel we do need to make every effort to point people toward the source of real free market economics education.

The more the knowledge spreads - the stronger and more solid the support will be, and the better shot we are going to have to turn the ship around.

Economics in One Lesson

Submitted by Von on Fri, 07/01/2011 - 20:57.

It seems some people here are not educated in Austrian (real) economics, understanding of which includes a strong belief in true Free Trade.

Real Free Trade (not GATT / NAFTA phony globalist structured Trade) is based on comparative advantage:

If another country can deliver a quality product for less money - this is to our advantage.

If you don't understand this - than you might be on the wrong site supporting the wrong candidate.

Because Dr Paul is a strong follower of Austrian economics. About all of his policies are based on this philosophy.

Educate yourself:

(its also available at mises.org - but there seems to a a problem with the search engine lately)

The Austrian

… Misian, Rothbardian view is not a NWO view. One can learn this very basic fact by reading Hazlett; his many examples relate how Free Market economies works in free sovereign societies. Please read and understand the basics … and then you can WTF us and Mises, Heyek, Eugen van Bohm-Bawerk and even Dr. Ron Paul.

Well said ...

IF we get some populist, protectionist President, beware...
I think all the republican candidates (except Paul) fall into this misguided believe in protectionism.

China wants to build a city in Idaho..so rumors grow

I would consider it a direct assault on our freedoms and our nation if China was to build a city in idaho and to own property.

Here Here for the Hazlitt plug.

Why is it ever a bad thing to get a good deal?

Money saved on a bridge is money spent on something else. When we spend money in China it makes our dollar go farther. Money not spent makes the dollar stronger.

Besides that, who knows the quality. It is probably the 'right' quality. American's have become as bad as unions. IF we get some populist, protectionist President, beware...

Trade wars and protective tariffs only hurt the poor.

I want things made on earth by humans.

Are you endorsing unemployment?

Just think of all the US jobs flushed down the toilet. Your remark that American's have beome as bad as unions is despicable.

Isolationism is very short-sighted. Please read the Hazlitt book.

WTF!?

I can't believe your post. We are America, a sovereign country. We have a responsibility to our citizens, not to make China great. We have record unemployment here, and yet we are outsourcing jobs right and left. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure this out. The hundreds or thousands of jobs involved in that bridge could put our people to work and help our economy out. I'm sorry to burst your NWO bubble, but we are not one big happy planet with one race or country...we are a complex planet full of various races, ideals, agendas, and morals. It's like you saying you would feed a family in the next state, before you fed your own kids. I mean after all, we all have to eat right? Your kids are your responsibility, not mine.
Now please take your NWO ass out of here and jump off of a bridge!

It's now or never...time to hit the streets and spread the truth!

WOW

… maybe it is time to review Henry Hazlitt’s “Economics in one lesion”, especially chapters XI - XIV (Saving the X Industry). See it here: http://www.hacer.org/pdf/Hazlitt00.pdf. Central planning got us into some of this mess … we can’t Central Plan our way out … there are way too many unforeseen consequences. The bridge is being built in China because it can be done cheaper there. That leaves more money to be spent on industry (some in the US) for items that sustain jobs.

I posted this

information 3 days ago, with commentary.
First of all, there have been numerous reports of tainted products the USA has bought from China...and we're going to trust them with a bridge??? Insane! Second of all, the American People need jobs--how dare "they" give these jobs to foreigners?? Just yesterday, I read an article wherein:

"...In 2010, the U.S. military had a problem: 59,000 microchips destined for installation in everything from missile defense systems to gadgets that tell friend from foe. The chips turned out to be counterfeits from China..."

Again, why isn't the USA using ONLY its own citizens to build something so important. Plus "we" need the jobs! Other countries are making important military parts??? Absolutely ridiculous! Talk about weakening our National Security, yet we're expected to believe that being groped at airports keeps us safe. Who's to say parts aren't being DELIBERATELY compromised?? I just can't stand it!
