    That is one possible method...and you are preaching to the choir as long as we are not talking about a return to the bad-old sweat shop in unsafe polluting factories days.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    And how do we transition back to a manufacturing economy? Robots cost less than decent paid labor, and they don't require health insurance or vacation time.

    Fact is, no one in this country is going to do anything, unless its hugely profitable.

    Is it really any surprise? When there's a gravy train, virtually everyone wants to ride, with the exception of those who vehemently value their independence.

    Surprise

    People who work at low-wage and low-middle-wage positions use Food Stamps and Medicaid (along with personal deficit spending via credit cards) to make ends meet. It not just "welfare mommas" folks, our economy is suffering. Something to consider when members discuss eliminating welfare programs accross the board.

    Hmm, well here's another story along those lines...

    Why Incomes Could Fall For the Next 30 Years | Daily Ticker - Yahoo! Finance

    Economists Richard Burkhauser of Cornell University and Jeff Larrimore, a staffer on the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, warn that demographic factors -- which have largely aided the U.S. economy in the past -- could end up pushing incomes down for the next 30 years or more. If other factors don’t force incomes up, we may be at the beginning of the longest period of economic decline in American history.

    It’s well understood that incomes went up in the 1980s and 1990s but stagnated from 2000 to 2007. The median income fell sharply during the 2007-2009 recession and has yet to recover.
    A 30 - 50 year recession??? WOW! Talks about improved education and the need for some "miracle thing" in our economy that builds new jobs. LOL.

    The only thing we need is for corporations and investment banks which hold all that capital to re-invest in our own economic growth.

    Don't worry, Obamacare will fix everything.

    Even many of those will hop aboard but wisely choose to bank (or invest) the savings attained.

    Anyone with the tiniest amount of macro understanding knows that it has been wages that primarily causes companies to relocate. Any argument about "regulation" is an environmental Luddite argument.
