Lol what are they gonna do? Take us to court?
Funny how things change. It wasn't long ago the Democrats were complaining about the trade deficit, and saying it was destroying our country, and we need controls on all this outsourcing.
Now here you are saying we need more trade, which will increase our trade deficit and allow more companies to outsource to China.
You hate Trump so much, that he has used his magical powers to get you people to support everything you hated 3 years ago.
Which means they want us to pay it back. We won’t do that if our economy is broken or we go to war.
That may be true but if we decide not to pay China back we then become Argentina.
Yeah, because we can’t produce our own electronics.
I told people if Trump were to be elected that Trump would preside over the worst economic collapse in modern history.
It's coming; all in good time.
Trump certainly knows how to run a business; right into the ground.
I worked with semiconductor fabrication for over 11 years.
That claim is complete bullshit. Americans CAN produce anything we desire to produce.
The issue is, what are consumers willing to pay for any product?
Much of the electronics are produced for American companies that transferred operations there for tax purposes and for cheap labor. They can always bring that manufacturing home.
EXACTLY. It's all about profit, the bottom line, share holders, etc.
In a good economy?
Whatever it’s worth to them.
Lots of people became very wealthy prior to Reagan.
