Comment: It can't because we have to

(See in situ)

It can't because we have to

It can't because we have to compete with 50 cent an hour Chinese labor and other wage arbitrage countries. All the so called free trade agreements, NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT/WTO removed virtually all consumer products manufacturing plants from the USA. Consumer purchases are 70% of the economy. The total number of paychecks earned today is about the same as in 1979, despite there being a 50 million increase in population. That's what so called free traders want, that's what we get. It's just math calculations.
