That idol of the yuppie lib-progs, Apple, makes most of its iPhones and iPads in China. Before he died, Steve Jobs was petitioned by Obama about all the jobs that they were sending overseas. Mr. Jobs said “those jobs aren’t coming back.”
Manufacturing jobs lost are usually permanently lost. Even if we got “competitive” and got our punitive corporate tax rates down to being even, instead of the worst in the world. Even if we got our burdensome regulations down to where this wasn’t the worst place to set up and run a manufacturing plant, it still wouldn’t be enough to justify moving a plant that is built and has a supporting infrastructure elsewhere. In order to justify moving, there has to be a HUGE difference in regulatory burden and taxes to make it worthwhile giving up a going concern. Much like the HUGE difference in benefits that existed that made China such a better place when the jobs were moved.
To bring them back, we would have to be another step better than the Chinese were to us when the jobs were lost.
Besides, the grand plan is to collapse the middle class and our economy. Can’t do that if the middle class has a good job and feels cocky enough to take issue with the government. There will be no middle class in the new world order. There will only be the uber-rich, the privileged politicians who are party members, and the peons. (or peed on’s.)
