  •  the problem is the unequal labor/environmental (0+ / 0-)

    laws which we operate under.

    The Republican idea is to accelerate the race to the bottom.  They've partially succeeded by killing unions.  The Democrats in the form of Clinton, and now Obama, are helping them.

    They want to kill off the env laws too.

    The more reasonable approach is tariffs which at least partly compensate for the fact that China, and other countries too, are destroying the environment at a prodigious rate to bring you "cheaper" goods.

    That pollution from China is going worldwide.

    Externalities, externalities, externalities.

    Having said all that, we are losing our manufacturing base, and as MANY people have pointed out that has severe implications for our economy long term.  Really, we are already seeing the result of that.
