27. Arithmetic

The FDR quote is completely appropriate to refute your falsehood. If you only pay your workers slave wages, who will buy your products? It's fucking simple arithmetic. Not every company makes luxury goods. Fairly soon the only two categories who will be able to purchase: the rich and the military. This global economy trope is pure bullshit. They are trying to open up markets in India and China, but great swaths of those countries can't afford iphones or True Religion Jeans. The US is a consumer economy; so what happens when you starve all the consumers?
