I'm fine with employees unionizing themselves, but I'm also fine with that union getting fired for demanding too much. As we're seeing with the American car companies, the unions demanding too much is now forcing them out of a job. Great job guys!
And you say that Toyota and other Japanese auto manufacturers are subsidized. So what? They still have to sell a good product to us. However, that just means that their other industries are that much weaker. If there are two industries A & B in countries C & D, and B subsidizes A in C, then D will not have a very strong A industry, but B will be booming in D because B from C cannot compete in D what with their profits being tapped to pay for A in C. In short, it doesn't matter that they're being subsidized. In fact, there is an inherent inefficiency in subsidization and so we don't have to worry about another country doing that. You can't subsidize every industry. At some point, someone has to make money.
