Response to H2O Man (Original post)

3. Thank you for this timely post, H2O Man.

 

I've been told that outsourcing and global trade are inevitable and of little concern.

That economic powers would trend toward increasingly unsustainable and shortsighted models does not surprise me, but when our government and our party leaders begin to help them grease the skids, I have to call them on it.

We are blessed in this nation with the human and the natural resources we need to be self-sustaining (if we don't mind cutting down on cheap consumer goods).

The very least we should do is to ensure that what trade we do engage in is regulated carefully and to the benefit of the workers and consumers and environment at each end of those deals.

Be well and thank you for the post.

Recommended.
