Why do ANYTHING in america? Jobs? Who cares corporate america can make
more money doing it in other countries, and we americans must not need

lets not forget exchanging our wealth for oil for a generation.

take any familiy on your street, have them give boatloads of money
away for a generation every month.

guess what sooner or later they are broke. ..........

such sending for oil isnt sustainable forever.......

just like home price increases.....

eventually it catches up with you...

These are all symptoms of an underlying problem our country has -
excessive spending on military and intelligence activities, and
managing our economy to maintain that excess while keeping taxes
low.

At present we must do two things;

(1) end the bleeding by cutting back our military expenditures to
1/10th their current level
(2) organize our markets and banking to attract back the $8.2
trillion lost by George Bush

According to the World Wealth Report most of the world's $40 trillion
in capital was invested in US markets in 2000. By 2008 less than $20
trillion in capital remained in US markets. From 2001 through 2007
$8.2 trillion moved out of the US markets into foreign markets,
primarily in Mumbai, Shanghai, Moscow, - enriching those markets and
impoverishing US markets.

The US runs a trade deficit of $50 billion per month.

The US spends $68 billion per month on its military and intelligence
infrastructure.

If the US would;

(1) cut military spending to less than $10 billion per month
(2) arrange its markets to attract foreign capital back

we would quickly restore our economic strength in the world.

Restructuring our markets doesn't mean more regulation, it means
less. It doesn't meant surface fixes, it means a substantial
restructuring of our long-term policies, for example, making it easier
for manufacturers to get very low interest rate loans for capital
equipment - stuff like that.

Bulk foods vs. processed foods are not anecdotal, its in the fine
print of the reports that were quoted by the other post. The *value*
of processed foods is far higher than the value of bulk foods.

Furthermore, the 'net exports' of bulk foods from the USA is not
market driven, its driven by food aid of which the USA provides 55% of
the world's total as part of its geopolitical control strategy.
Market driven trade of *all* foods, processed and bulk, show that the
USA is a net importer of food.

Put William Mook in charge and stand back.

Print foreign currency in order to pay for everything.

What could possibly go wrong?

At least the article notes that US government policy currently prohibits
the kind of outsourcing you're concerned about, due to the risk of high
technology being used for military purposes.

One might also argue, though, that the US government kept too tight a
grip on launch capacity for many years.  In the US, we've been all
excited about commercialization of space for the last few years, with
the X Prize and all that good stuff... but the French company Arianespace
commercialized launch capability in _1980_ and has been launching stuff
commercially since 1984.

Are you mad about Arianespace too? :)

I think they'd have some catching-up to do on the military front,
but they certainly want to catch up fast in science and technology.
China and India are both aboard the Thirty Meter Telescope project,
for example:

http://www.tmt.org/news-center/china-joins-thirty-meter-telescope-project
http://www.tmt.org/news-center/india-joins-thirty-meter-telescope-project

'Course it's still being built in the US.

In 1914 Henry Ford astonished the world by raising prevailing wages
from $1 per day for his factory workers to $5 per day. Ask how he
could pay such wages he called the $4 per day 'efficiency wages' that
were earned by workers due to the remarkable efficiency of his mass
production methods which he introduced in 1908. As an aside he said
$5 per day was what his workers needed to make in order to live well
and afford the cars they were making.

The American middle class was born.

And has been opposed by the high class business owners ever since.

2008 was the 100th anniversary of Ford's remarkable mass-production
system. It passed in America un-noticed. Not so in Japan where MITI
vowed to make an unmanned flexible factory commercially viable by 2035
- fifty years after the program demonstrations had started in 1985.

No comparable program exists in the United States supported at such a
high level (though Rennslear Polytechnic MIT and others have mounted
similar university level efforts) the policy of the United States is
to leave manufacturing to our allies assuming that the relative value
of the economic sectors that applied in 1940s will apply in 2040s.

They will not - and they do not today.

Retailing and banking are low value commodities in the digital age

Automation makes manufacturing very highly valued

Resource depletion and environmental costs have radically increased
the cost of raw materials food and energy.

In the digital era it is the preparation for war that is the great
destroyer of wealth, as war was the great destroyer of wealth in the
industrial era.

We must disinvest in the CIA and DOD
We must re-invest in manufacturing, low cost alternative energy, and
advanced food production
We must radically expand our use of off-world assets and resources to
bring new supplies to the center from our collective frontier.

We must do this very soon, or we will not have the chance to do it, as
someone else will do it before us and leave us dependent on them here
on out.

Any competitive game is won at the end, not the beginning. We played
the beginning well. We have removed our most serious decision making
process from critical oversight which is causing us to lose the end
game.

Those who oppose us in the present era do not do so overtly. They
oppose us covertly. Terrorism is a distraction and a tool. At most a
pawn in the battle for dominance that is being waged around us
today.

From 1940 through 1960 the US instituted structural changes that made
it reliant on the continued dominance of the retail and banking sector
as it arranged to pay for its war preparations.

From 1960 through 1980 the US undermined its currency going off gold,
and became dependent on foreign manufacturing and energy rather than
assess the wisdom of its commitment for war preparations in a world at
peace. Wrongly convinced that the world was peaceful *because* of its
preparations.

From 1980 through 2000 the US became dependent on foreign capital
rather than assess the wisdom of war preparations in a continuing
peace. The US organized radical Muslims throughout the world trained
them, funded them, provided weapons and intelligence support in
support of its perceived best interest.

From 2000 through the present the US has lost access to capital as the
radical Muslim movement it spawned turned against us and those who
oppose us covertly execute their wining strategy for the end-game.
The US in response has increased its resolve to be prepared for low
level threats while large pieces of world trade and large threats are
unaddressed.

What can you say about someone who complains that you don't know what
you're talking about when you don't cite sources and then complains
that you're just parroting what you've read when you do? lol.
Obviously anyone like that is on a mission and cares little about the
facts or reality.
