    Nevertheless the coat is sold by an American company and adding to the profits of the stockholders not to mention a bonus for the CEO.

    Something has to be made in the USA so we can purchase it. Retirees shop at Wal-mart because the prices are cheaper and don’t care about the politics. N.I.M.B.Y. gives a mindset of take care of myself today and not to worry about what is to come. This isn’t about stockholders and the ceo. It is about being cognisant and conscious of what our actions do in the long run.

    Cut corp. taxes cut the heads off the intl. unions,(locals are nessesary sometimes). Then U.S, companys can be competitive but not before.

    davesmithshit, Without the unions, I bet you would not be as well off as you are. Imajs, Not all retirees shop at Wal-Marts. I shop anyplace else first.

    To the strip, I’m extremely to the right, and I agree 100% with the thesis of this strip. America is weak as long as we manufacture NOTHING, and how can we import blood products from China? The love of a buck is the root of all evil…I always buy things that say Taiwan, Mexico, Bangladesh, etc…over China. Best you can do.

    ^ this is where so-called conservatives and progressives meet. Doing away with our manufacturing base and thinking we can thrive on a “financial services” economy is killing us, making us weaker and valuing all the wrong things.

    I tried to buy a new disk with more memory for my Sony digital camera and couldn’t find anything made in the USA. Ticked me off and I left without buying anything. Turns out it wasn’t possible to buy a USA-made disk anywhere. Didn’t exist. Doncha just love the decisions our private enterprise brethren make?

    Sure! Get rid of unions so that we can have Americans working for $.65/hour. But cutting the executives’ $million bonuses would be un-American.

    It would be easier to compete if we could make our over-flowing prisons produce the labor at no cost! But, don’t touch those $million bonuses for the execs!!

    I knew someone who worked in the textile mills in NC years ago to pay for his college. Despite being payed a decent wage(at that time) he was desperate to get out. That’s why he was in college. Do Americans want to work in factories or other professions? BTW Germany does not generally manufacture the type of goods that lend themselves to cheap production.

    @Gladius: trouble is, without factory workers bringing new money into a local economy, there’s a “trickle-up” effect where there will gradually be less and less demand for jobs further up the pay and prestige scale. See what’s happening to Detroit with all the manufacturing jobs leaving: retail, restaurants, entertainment venues, accountants, lawyers… nobody has the money for that kind of thing, so they’re out, too. This is kind of funny because, taken to it’s logical conclusion, Walmart is ultimately slitting its own throat, putting its own customers out of business…

    Only 8% of American workers are in unions. Blaming unions for the export of jobs is like blaming dachshunds for all dog bites. Human has it right- and American companies need to be hiring AMERICAN workers, at fair and equitable salaries and benefits– instead of giving all the benefits to the few at the top- who export the jobs.

    International trade IS something we should participate in, but it would be nice if we exported something other than weapons for that economic base.

    Service economy: produces money which leads to inflation.

    Goods economy: creates wealth which leads to prosperity.

    Its real simple yet we allowed it to happen.

    A goods economy only produces prosperity if you have people who can pay for the product. Neither goods nor service sectors exist in a vacuum. I would much rather see an integrated economy. We no longer manufacture a number of things. That doesn’t mean we no longer manufacture anything. There is also the matter of value added industry. This is not a simple matter of factory work being inherently better than other types of work.
