  •  I don't think there is a lack of demand for (0+ / 0-)

    products. Go to any US Ikea or Cosco and you can see that the whole rainbow coalition of the US population and its immigrants and its elderlies have very well a demand for products. I would love to have numbers about how many of those products you can buy at Cosco or Ikea are manufactured in the US and would like to know if there are equivalent products to buy elsewhere in the US, which were also produced in the US.

    If US corporations had restrictions from where they could buy their materials to produce the item they want to sell, and if they had restriction on to where they could outsource the labor for producing their items, the jobs would stay here, the training for those jobs would have to be sustained in the US, and the products they would produce might be more pricey, but that wouldn't hurt, as you could eliminate the competition of products from overseas. Why has everything to be produced somewhere else and not in the US?
