“I think Manufacturing is going to be localized in the future. Things will be made in the country they are consumed.  But technology improvements will kill any massive job gains.  Anyone that thinks that the key to employment growth through manufacturing is sorely wrong.

“They could never have the factories here . It would take 10 years to build the factory if at all, it would cost 10x as much to build the products, and they could only make 1/10th as many.

All these reason are due to the lefts biggest donors

Unions
Trial lawyers

“Having been to China a number of times (35 years in the manufacturing industry), I can tell you first hand that the pollution there is unbelievable as are the working conditions. I can also tell you that the cost difference between manufacturing in China and manufacturing in the US is not as great as you think when all things are considered, warranty, shipping damages, etc. Sooner or later the Chinese workers are going to demand a living wage and a safe work environment as well as pollution control. What are you going to do then?

“Too bad this will never happen! That would take the power away from the politicians so fat chance on that. These politicians have divided this country for their politic gain. They are having us fight amongst ourselves so we don't rise up against them.
