I am a Nationalist, and see all states as American. If a Company moves to another state thats fine by me. Moving to another country is taking away tax dollars, jobs, etc from our nation that I cannot endorse.This can happen with or without globalization.
Do I take it you are ok with a company moving plants across state lines and firing hundreds or thousands of people in the process but some how it's wrong to do the same thing across country lines?
Automation didnt close those factories in Pittsburg, since production fell not only the number of factories and employees. Also automation doesnt affect small business who are caught between "free" Trade abroad and over regulation at home. We have to compete on uneven terms, which makes it an unfair market.Where is the outcry for destroying the use of automation? Automating current process to be more efficient thus requiring less workers to do the same job? That's ok? Can I replace all my workers with machines as long as those machines are in the US?
I never said close trade, I am simply stating that we shoudl deYes let's close our borders and seclude ourselves form the world business wise and let the world grow up and more powerful around us. Great idea, let me know how that goes.
