    You dumb twat, no shit they existed. The point is they were all either bombed to hell from WW2 or still third world countries(China, South Korea and India weren't even emerging economies at the time). So high taxes and high regulation in a globalized society with free trade and multiple competing economic powers just wont work, business will go elsewhere.

    It is true, you could institute tariffs to protect industry(which I agree with in certain cases), but you have to provide incentive for industry to remain in your country in the first place.

    Here's the incentive. Keep your factory here, or we don't let you sell in this market.

    Period.

    Get it? The problem with "Free Trade" is that those other countries protect their industries and we don't protect ours.

    Ever try to get product into China? I have. It isn't as easy as getting their products into this country.

    So, you are going to institute a ban on foreign goods?

    That worked really well for the Soviets and is working really well for North Korea.

    China doesn't ban foreign goods...

    Actually, China does ban foreign goods. In order to "sell" goods in China you are required to "produce" the same amount of goods in China. This is one of the major reasons corporations moved to China. You want to sell there you have to move there.

    No, they slap it with a VAT and make you fill out a ton of paperwork. And that's for things they WANT to get into the country, like machines to make factories better.

    Trust me, I've done this.

    We should do the same. Huge tarriffs on foreign made goods and strict inspections on what they are bringing in so we don't have the lead paint, roofies and other nonsense.

    So you would treat Chinese goods the same as say, British or German goods?
