Our brave new world is charaterized by persistent unemployment at 10%+ in both Europe and US if you count those who have stopped looking becaUSE THERE IS NOTHING OUT THERE. Pushing jobs offshore is a huge reason. No one is suggesting
how to emply tens of millions of people who have have no opportunity. Retraining them to work in IT is absurd.
Why not reduce imports of textiles, shoes, clothing and wood products to zero over the next 5 years? That would create millions of jobs in the US? I am in favor of free trade where it makes sense but why "cut off your nose to spite your face".
It seems to me that our government has no strategy other than to source cheap product. Our first obigation should be to the 300 million people who live here and want to work here.
