I think the story is a lot more complicated the pundits of the media and the idiotic fools that have been running for office care to understand.|
China is pleased to get any help available.
That big corporations have out-sourced jobs should be of no surprise to anyone, They are driven by their bottom-line not social and moral ethos. If the textile mills went to China it was because competition from the cheaper prices of the first to out-source their labor forced the rest of them to do the same. Before China, it was Japan that saw manufacturing companies move out of the US -- it was supported, in part, by ideology, the intelligentsia wanted to rebuild Japan into an interdependent capitalist society that would find another way to accumulate its resources rather than by force. The same was true with the Philippines -- long before most everyone's time on these boards. Then Taiwan, Indonesia and now China and others.
The attitude of the idealists who made it easy for big corporations to out-source and thereby deliberately not regulate the kind of labor force or other political and social ethos, were interested in creating a global market and global interdependence on capitalist trade, presumably making these Nations more responsible and less dependent on taking their needs by force. In stark contrast was the lack of out-sourcing of jobs to Nations like Germany, which has always had a highly competent work-force which demanded parity for their efforts and could because they were already part of the global capitalist market.
The politicians and their media always have to have a bogey man. They don't bother to consider the history and the reasons.
The power brokers have conversely stuck to their plan all along, now that these out-sourced countries are all players in the big capitalist market place, they feel justified in forcing them to bend to the wills of their notions of social ethos, hence the HR bashing.
There was no concern over the jobs in the US with its already high standard of living, they reckoned education and technological distance would keep them viable. Then they discovered a plateau. It was a lot more complicated then they reckoned. So now they pull out all stops to bring the thing back into their control. But the lack of regulation and care in our system has led to one disaster after another.
Rather than explain all of this to the American people and actually create a viable plan, they have foundered in knee-jerk notions of creating new industries, letting the big corporate thieves and banksters with their schemes them all a bunch of garbage. The politicians are really too stupid toget a handle on any of it and have resorted to cheap sound-bites of rhetoric driping in fear and loathing.
Obama's administration talked a big idea but had very poor follow-through, hamstrung by the garbage that has filled and choked the nation already for far too long.
