The pie is growing unfortunately the number of people taking slices of the pie has increased much faster, that means smaller pieces for everyone except for a few who control the distribution of the pie, I know/expect you under stand this but just in case lets say that in America we have 320 million people drawing from the pie and then we bring in 1.3 billion Indians and another 1.2 billion Chinese. Now lets say that the pie represents jobs and their are 1.2 billion jobs and 3 billion job seekers that means that 1.8 billion do not have a slice of the pie and it will not matter what that 1.8 million do even if they re-educate their selves and displace some of those working those workers that they replaced now take their place as unemployed or underemployed.
I question myself as to whether a global economy "pie" is a good or bad thing, short term it has hurt the american worker maybe long term "10-20 years" it would be good. I wonder if it is/was preventable but their is no way that anyone can deny the impact it has had on America's working middle class. Now those who have benefitted the most from the Chinese and Indian merging into the job pie are those who hand out the slices you know those that can invest in foreign markets. It seems that for some reason the Republicans and Wall Streeter's fight any effort to make the Chinese live up to the trade agreements and to bring their undervalued currency up
