    I think that on an individual bases, businesses should to whatever it takes within the law and morality to maximize profits. Morality is the issue here I suppose. I dunno that exporting jobs is immoral.

    However, I think that we should have national policies that would tend to result in job creation at home.

    Yeah. The idea that middle class do all the work and the rich get all the money is brilliant, if you are rich that is. If you are not, and you fall for that crap, then that is pitiful.

We have already agreed that low wages is holding back the investment in technology, and low investment in technology is the cause of their proverty, thus paying higher wages is the solution.

    Name one country which started paying higher wages to it's productive workers that didn't increase in wealth.
    Argentina has a minimum wage equal to about $21,000. Their unemployment rate is 7.5% and their GDP per capita is $14,715 compared to the US value of $51,459. By the way, Argentina's minimum wage is higher than the United States'.

    I don't know that I would put it in the category of immoral, and don't think the op questioned its morality as such, but its patriotism. Which it does strike me as un patriotic. And I agree with your second statement.
