    As is being discussed elsewere on this thread, quite a few developed nations are also export led economies (I cited some statistics) and I think it's worth understanding how they do that.

    As far as I know, the workers benifits for people in Ireland, Finland, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland etc are as go if not better than the US but these nationas take a different approach.

    Likewise, many American companies quite sucessfully export or the US would have zero.

    So my question is how to translate the formula into better policy and supports to promote revitalization of US industries. In fact Obama is trying but Congressional support is pretty weak.

    Ultimately, you could make the same argement about China - lots of companies have left for other, cheaper countries because they consider China too expensive - at the bottom of the food chain that is always the case.
