    So do you support a socialist economy that restricts companies from outsourcing? I don't like that jobs are going to China, but the fact is that something might cost $10 to produce in the US while it costs $2 to produce it in China and have it shipped here. It's how free market capitalism works.

    You can not compete with socialists with capitalists methods, you will always lost.It is not "free market", but a giving away our technologies, welfare and future to a cunningly communist country.It is a crime against our people to give everything China for nothing.

    No, manufacturing is simply not an area in which the United States has a comparative advantage. Our comparative advantages are in ideas, intellectual property, professional services, and the like. International trade is a very positive thing, for both the US and China.

    If we can then sure. Any one calling themselves a patriotic American should be against outsourcing in the first. Anyone who has ever bashed communist dictatorships should be appalled by the fact our elected officials have sold our country out to Chinese just so they can continue sticking their tongues up the asses of businessmen to toss their salad. The idea that the US can compete with a country that pays its workers a $120 a month and with no work and environmental safety laws if ****en laughable.

    washingtonpost.com: Chinese Workers Pay for Wal-Mart's Low Prices
    SHENZHEN, China -- Inside the factory, amid clattering machinery and clouds of sawdust, men without earplugs or protective goggles feed wood into screaming electric saws, making cabinets for stereo speakers. Women hunch over worktables, many hands bandaged and few covered by gloves, pressing transistors into circuit boards.

    Most of the 2,100 workers here are poor migrants from the countryside who have come to this industrial hub in southern China for jobs that pay about $120 a month. A sign on the wall reminds them of their expendability in a nation with hundreds of millions of surplus workers: "If you don't work hard today, tomorrow you'll have to try hard to look for a job."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Capital has historically migrated to lowest cost of labor for consumer goods, even within the US. Some Americans are having problems understanding their skill sets no longer have market demand in a global economy that provides the same end products without furnishing mostly uneducated workers with what Americans consider a deserved standard of living. So, as with this thread, they try and find someone, something else to blame for their circumstances. Different ideologies are always an easy target.

    I wouldn't stop it but I would instead add heavy tariffs evening the field perhaps even to a degree that goods here would be made cheaper to purchase.

    Yeah, Americans don't need clothes, or shoes, or TV's, ovens, etc. They should just stop buying Chinese products so that all the companies that sell them can go bankrupt, adding millions to the unemployed line, and when they lose their houses they won't even have cardboard boxes to sleep in, 'cause they're made in China.
