    Cheap imports have become a delusion.

    Economic growth is economic growth. Are you saying if all that manufacturing was here in good old USA we would not be improving our middle and lower classes ?

    What about all those high paying manufacturing jobs adding to our societal wealth ?

    And what , you expected China to wallow as peat burners for the rest of history and never experience economic expansion.

    You speak with forked tongue klan man.

      Your argument lacks one very critical thing.

      MATH!!

      China's middle class has just stared to grow and it's already at 450 MILLION.

      That's 150 million more than ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE U.S.!

      You speak with f*cked brain rain man.

      • common sense, please review below for math errors and advise.

        ACME Inc produces 1,000,000 widgets per week using the equivalent 1,000 barrels of oil per week. The widgets are sold in WMT stores.

        How does oil consumption change if the widgets are produced in China, American, Columbia, or anywhere. If the widgets are produced in America, the oil is shipped to America. if the widgets are produced in China, the oil is shipped to China.

        No matter where or how, it takes 1,000 barrels of oil to produce the 1 million widgets.

        WMT buying from Chinese manufacturers does not increase world consumption of oil. It just changes where the oil is shipped.

        Feel free to explain in detail how the widget factory in China uses more oil than the American widget factory.
