    Not yet at least

    They do have a lead in at least one industries (high speed rail) over the US, though not over other industrial countries.

    I agree. The idea that American companies can compete with foreign companies(any outsourced company is no longer American) that pay their workers a 120 dollars a month. as well as little to no health and environmental regulations is absurd.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    And your solution is protectionism?

    I seldom defend james, for good reason, but I don't quite think he said that. Regardless, what would your solution be?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I am actually curious to know why all the jobs and businesses are moving to a Communist country... Isn't the stereotype that the commies will tax them to death, so we give them massive tax breaks because that's freedom and commies are oppressive to companies? If we give them tax breaks and aren't commies, they why won't they stay here? lol

    Saying that you think tariffs should be added to account for differences in environmental and labor laws is protectionism because it restrains trade between countries. Saying that there should be a solution implies that there is a problem to begin with. I do not think there is a problem with what GE is doing. Allow them to invest in china. Shareholders (many Americans) will see returns. We will see cheaper and more goods being imported from overseas and can specialize in what we have comparative advantage in for example environmental engineering services, thus producing more goods than was possible before, a mutual benefit.
