    Trade deficits are ALWAYS detrimental to their nations’ GDPs.

    Refer to “Warren Buffett's concept to significantly reduce USA's trade deficit”

    of course thats idiotic, its like saying Chicago should not run a trade deficit with NY. If they make great stuff in NYC and not in Chicago the folks in Chicago would be idiots for not buying from NY.

    Does the goof liberal want a law saying you must always buy in your city or country regardless of price and quality???

    I try not to buy anything produced in China. Not easy, and certainly not cheap... but worth the effort and the cost.

    1) It is not Chicago, and not NY
    2) They don't make anything good in China
    3) China has a looooong history of not just inferior, but dangerous products like lead paint on Disney childrens glasses.
    4) WTF made you think I am liberal?
    5) Your strawman argument is weak and stupid.

    I want my Country to make an effort to lower the cost of energy so that American factories can compete. I have never bought a car made in China but I don't mind buying cheap stuff made in China because democrat policies have driven up the cost of living in the US and it's hard to make ends meet..

    So do you want a law that makes trade with China illegal? How many liberal economists support this??

    I just bought tires made in China they were 25-50% of the American and European price, and double the quality. I bet my life on China.
    They do make crap too, but as always you have to shop wisely.

    great point!!! the liberals hate corporations so tax them at the highest rate in the world. Who can afford the liberal prices our corporations then must charge to make up for the liberal tax.

    What is wrong with you?
    Where did I say there should be a law against Chinese products?
    Obviously you have never read about the damning environmental short cuts China takes in producing rubber. But don't worry about it. As long as you are happy with your tires.
