Corky - You're posting nonsense about having to pay for trade imbalances in gold and having greater # of goods and services available.
Meanwhile - We sent all our good jobs overseas!
Do you understand that people need jobs? Do you understand that having an economy based on crappy service jobs can't and doesn't work?
We need to make stuff here so that people can work and be paid a living wage for it. This isn't rocket science.
"Yeah, It's a Conspiracy!!"
When people shill for allowing China to crap all over any semblence of free trade under the guise that its a good thing, then yes they have ulterior motives. Nobody is this stupid.
You literally quoted someone who conflated having access to more stuff to buy - without any consideration as to whether we have the money to keep buying it - with actual wealth.
Nobody is this friggin stupid. Anyone who would say something so dumb has a reason for doing so. And, unlike you, most people need a better reason than being a partisan shill.
