Editor's note: Capital in that context is spelled with a capital 'C'. Lower case denotes physical capital like factories and equipment, etc.
I like capitalism and think it's a good system, if balanced with protection for labor.
We basically need to get back to producing
There is no point in forcing a $15/hr minimum wage along with expensive (however needed) pollution and safety restrictions when the factory can bypass these rules by building in China.
Democrats once represented the working class. Not any moreBill Clinton and Barack Obama helped shift power away from the people towards corporations. It was this that created an opening for Donald Trump
It's good for the Chinese and for US stockholders, but there is a time limit on those benefits. Once the US working class is impoverished to the point where they can no longer buy Chinese goods, the game is over and we are left with a smoking ruin while the Chinese have all the manufacturing ability.
OK, will correct, thanks.
Otherwise you could just go full Communist and Capital would no longer be a threat. Of course, Capital would no longer be the producer that creates enough to give Labor a fair share.
I like capitalism and think it's a good system, if balanced with protection for labor. Otherwise, all the returns go to the top and everyone else gets impoverished. You get a hereditary aristocracy, which is what we fought a revolution against to begin with.
STILL, a lot of secondary and tertiary support work for re-shored factories would generate more jobs here at home.
What would you do if your own party sold you out like the Democrats sold out labor?
Factories require more energy.
Eric Holder saysFactories require more energy.They require a lot less energy than they used to. That is also part of productivity increasing.
Rank and file political debate under the pseudo two party system.
What would Republicans
Still more than no factories at all.
Automan Empire saysWhat would RepublicansFuck the Republicans. Vote for Trump.
He is a better Democrat that most Democrats by supporting labor, working to limit illegals and outsourcing to China.
