    Well written.  Another deception in the whole wretched trade liberalization meme is that inflationary policies by the money printers are hidden behind the so-called low cost things that are outsourced.   Its not much different than the 80's when Japan was accused of dumping memory chips below production cost in the US computer world  crushing domestic 'competition'.  Once the competition is wiped out, they monopolize the market.  Walmart and all the big box stores are effectively doing the exact same thing.

    When the domestic 'competition' is destroyed they own the market and then raise prices as they please.  Government's job is to implement policies that make it possible for the domestic businesses thrive, current policies crush it.  Small businessmen are not meeting with politicians or the president and don't have the money to bribe them with a cushy lucrative position once the politician gets tossed out of office.

    "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance." -James Madison
