U.S. trade problem begins with outsourcing

August 13, 2010

Today I am wearing my Indonesian shirt and my pants from China. Do we really need an economist to tell us what's happening in our country?

While I understand and approve of our trying to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves, outsourcing has to have a downward effect on the economy of the USA. Because this country has been the top economy in the world, there is no place for us to go but down. If China ever calls in our debt to her, we are going to be dead in the water.

I cannot suggest a solution to this problem but I certainly hope that someone can.
