While I understand why this thread was started I think maybe it is motivated by an incorrectly held belief that American jobs just for American jobs' sake is all that matters.
It is a great thing that Chinese goods come into this country because while we may not have all the manufacturing jobs we have higher real wages while less expensive goods flow in (because it increases the purchasing power of the dollar).
The problem is the only thing we export is debt which weakens the dollar. This is a catch 22 because it is more tempting to buy cheaper goods with a weaker currency.
I think the only thing that is going to fix this is when China finally cuts the US gov't off. I think they are hesitant because it will be painful for them in the short term. I think their gov't understands the issue better than they let on.
It's coming. Get ready for it.
