Yes, I do. Consider that when products go overseas for production it results in a lower cost to Americans, typically. (How many middle/low income people could afford Iphones if they were produced in this country?) When this outsourcing happens it frees capital, both human and monetary, to pursue other avenues of production. In the 90’s we DOMINATED the GLOBAL computer/internet innovation. This fueled the vast expansion in the economy during that period. Our issue in this country is that in the last 10 years innovation has been stagnant. Our economic growth was based on housing, public and private debt the three of which are not sustainable in the long run.What, do you support how businesses send jobs overseas, or how they suppress the poor?
As far as suppressing the poor, by outsourcing and thus lowering the cost of goods it is in fact progressing the poor as ‘creature comforts’ become more attainable. Research the recent Census data concerning the percentage of low income families who possess things like A/C, cable TV, PC’s, etc.
