    Agreed AIT, James getting nowhere with his approach. yawn...

    I will say, without the (costs) of reg's that we impose upon ourselves, they'll continue to have an advantage for production - over and above cheap labor.

    "....based on her access to cheap labor, willingness to ignore environmental degradation..."
    "...maintaining a stable society and sustainable economy..."

    I 'recognize' that view allowing the import of goods that don't have the same regulations that we impose upon ourselves thus by allowing these imports - we'll 'have an unstable and unsustainable economy'.

    Not really a protectionist...if the playing field is level.

    ".....would not entail "weaponizing" REE dominance..."

    Reel - are you saying China didn't pull back shipping REE materials from Japan?

    good point penny - I'd add that we should impose some sort of equalizing tariff to level the playing field for our domestic manufacturers.

    One of the experts interviewed mentioned cost of labor as a cost advantage - he also mentioned the lack of regulations there vs our environmental regs & constraints here in the U.S.

    We shouldn't be surprised at the demise of the middle class jobs/earnings the past two decades. We impose heavy regs on ourselves and allow the multi nationals and Chinese producers to produce w/out our level of regulation costs and bring the goods here for further processing or final sale.

    Foot out - then we shoot it.

    whole different story if we didn't allow the import(s) of good that don't have the same regulations that we impose upon ourselves.

  • The Financial Folly Lurking Beneath Yellen's Patient Lack Of Impatience [View article]
    Financialization one part - buybacks to pump options values vs cap ex and the employee(s) compensation.....due to huge centralization of multi nationals' power. and ability to off-shore production to countries - with lower costs of regulations plus cheap labor. Something the mid sized business isn't able to compete with.
    The middle tier (bottom ~80%) is less able to build businesses against the 'favored' multi nationals. Not only a Wal-mart vs ex corner groceries store example, but multi's skirting the reg's oversea's vs generally smaller domestic producers - that attempt to compete with local production/labor, aren't able to stay in the game. Our productivity level overcomes much of the gap between wages - through the reduced cost of regs in SE Asia and its tipped the ability to build from a medium based business - generally.

    The exceptions are all we have left.

    sounds far enough dar - although I've heard sub prime creeping into housing with no down to 3% down happening now.

    Stockman makes sense.

    "I sometimes wish I were as sure as you of the things I am as wrong about."
    Off your topic Larry - but this liquidity pump hasn't juiced the bottom !90% standard of livings - really std of liv should be a key metric for the health of our economy....?

    well put sir.
    Should we not gauge the economy on a 'standard of living' basis?
