U.S. Economic Growth Falls Short as Supply Chain Disruptions Stunt Recovery


Recommended Posts

Supply chain = China.  I found out yesterday that a person who needs a new battery for their laptop will have to wait until October to get it.  This is what happens when you willingly sacrifice your manufacturing base to a foreign adversary/enemy on the alter of nwo globalism.

It has all been done in the name of higher profits. Corporate America sold out this country...and enabled the rise of totalitarian Red China...because they value nothing except money. If (When?) a shooting war breaks out between the US and China...and thousands of Americans start coming home in body bags...you can blame the executives and boards of directors of Corporate America.

You were supposed to say Liberals Democrats fault. 

In reality it was both parties fault for not stopping the corporations from moving jobs overseas.

The religion of free trade (at any cost to American workers) really took hold in the 1980s. The entire GOP (greed over people) and many democrats knelt at the altar of economic globalism. It has been great for the stock market and for the wealthy (who happen to own most of the stocks)...but not so much for the millions of factory workers that saw their jobs offshored to places where desperate people would work for pennies an hour.

I remember growing up , and seeing people who didn't go to college still live a middle class life buy working the factory line.

It's not just moving jobs overseas, China, Japan and other foreign countries are buying farm land and commercial real estate in the U.S. at an alarming rate .... I heard this discussed last week on the radio .... this needs to be stopped by our congress and the dimturd's lame 10164.pngexcuse for a leader in the White House  ...

I've heard that too.  I have talked to a real estate a few weeks ago  He related it is about nearly 100% American wealthy people buying out all the homes and land.  He had dealt with some who owns dozens of homes per person.   It has become a fad or keeping up with the Jones attitude.  At least that is what is going on in Central Texas and West Texas.   He thought the blame on China and other foreign companies was just a tactic to make people who are upset at the prices to place their anger on China instead of the very rich Americans.

That is why the "Fight for $15" movement has taken hold. Not everyone has the skills and abilities to be a "white collar professional"...so with millions of the factory jobs offshored the people that would have moved from entry level work into those jobs are now largely stuck in McJobs. No company moves jobs to Red China...or Vietnam...or Indonesia to improve quality or customer service...they do it only to enrich themselves by exploiting desperate workers.

If everybody went to college, there would be 10 dollar an hour accountants.  

 

The 15 dollar and hour is greatly connected to the housing price explosion.  If it cost more your property taxes go up.  Plus, if you have to pay more for a house you have to jack up rent to cover the cost.  It is killing the low-income families.  This could become the leading factor for driving the American people to a more socialist agenda.

Agree 100% although they really didn't need to stop them as much as not enable them.  Wanna move?  Fine.  Pay your tarriff.  We export our jobs to china and in turn they build up their military, pay off our politicians and business leaders, steal our intellectual property, and for the final cherry on top, they export fentanyl to us.

And the bought and paid for politicians who enabled it.  I'm of the opinion that if you want to make your stuff in China then go ahead,  it's a free country,  but you're going to pay a tarriff for foreign made goods. Same policy as the founders.  We just had a man who tried to do that and look at the steps that were taken to make sure he was sent packing.

Again this is likely the ploy being used to do the don't look at me, and blame China.  American wealthy has bought both parties out.    This housing situation is going to cause anger for the American people of all walks of life.

The Mrs wants to sell our fairly expensive home and buy a shack on the lake.  That might not be a bad idea lol.

Yep. Trumps China policy was spot on. Problem is that China is playing a long game while we are playing a short game. They knew that if they just waited Trump out in a few years things would go back to normal.

President Trump was doing exactly that...many were already coming back that had fled during the Obama era of high taxes...and will do the same if Sleepy Joe stays in office!
