    Did Wal*Mart start the decline of America?

    1975 was the last year America had a trade surplus....

    Sam Walton was in Seoul in 1975...

    Jimmy Hoffa disappeared in 1975....

    Wal*Mart moved their Global Procurement Office to Hong Kong and than to China....

    Wal*Mart partnered with a person from Hong Kong on a port in Mexico....

    Retail makes NOTHING....it only moves currency....

    In the past thirty-seven years...

    How many dollars in America have been transferred to China?

    Remember, 1975 was the last year the United States of America had a trade surplus....

    America has a 6 to 1 trade deficit with China....

    People think the American government borrows from the Chinese government in order for America consumers to purchase Made In China stuff....

    but it's We the People that purchase all that crap first....

    and their government has to sell bonds(debt) in order to get some of those dollars back....

    Put the blame where it needs to be....

    We the People are addicted to the word cheap....

    and are screwing themselves to death.

    Made In America is the only way out of this mess cause foreign made put US here....

    Either the people of America need to stop buying all that foreign crap....

    OR...

    the nice people of China step up to the plate and purchase American made to balance the trade...

    One hasn't a need to go to Harvard to understand that...

    in fact...

    for the past twelve years....

    people of Harvard hasn't understood any of that.

    sad!!

      • ["Now let us look at Wal-Mart again; you buy a product there, 6% goes to the employees, 10-18% is profit to the company, 25% goes to other costs and 50% goes to re-stock or the cost of goods sold. Of the 50% about 20-25% goes to China, a guess, but you get the point. Now then, how long will it take at 433 Billion dollars at year for China to have all of our money, leaving no money flow for us to circulate? At a 17 Trillion dollar economy less than 40-years minus the 1/6 they buy from us. Some say that if we keep putting money into our economy, it would take forever, but if we do not then eventually all the money flow will go. If China buys our debt then eventually they own us, no need to worry about a war, they are buying America, due in part to our own mismanaged trade, so whose fault is that? Not necessarily China, as they are doing what's in the best interests, and we should make sure that trade is not only free, but fair too."]

        the above came from the article "The Flow of Trade in a Global Economy" by Lance Winslow

        1975 the last year America had a trade surplus....

        DO THE MATH PEOPLE.....!!!
