    We need ORCS in all of our Big Cities. We need thousands of ORCS, and thousands of Fifty Gallon cans on wheels and thousands of shovels and brooms. Put them to work cleaning up the streets and sidewalks.

    In the U.S. before FDR it was better to move your wife and daughters to the frontier and farm than brave life in the big cities.

    Then we ran out of Indian land to give away in the west, the country started to evolve into a scarier place and something had to be done.

    The fellow is actually quite consistent with the historical structuralist approach to international political economy. Multinationals use capital mobility in order to put pressure on regimes to adopt greater labour flexibility. We then get a 'race to the bottom' as across country labour competition intensifies exploitative.

    The important aspect is that the US creates "good jobs". That actually means regulation is a positive phenomena, as it reduces the available profit in low productivity employment. Resources can be shifted away from low skilled employment

    We've been driving jobs out of America for the last fifty years, folks.

    What we're facing now is the outcome of these stupid policies.

    FREE TRADE was anything but free.

    The US doesn't have free trade. It still imposes numerous protectionist measures, which certainly have been more damaging to the economy than the standard hullabaloo about outsourcing.
