How about a little common sense.
Jobs are created by increased demand for the products and services that are produced by those jobs. Understand that the demand is still here. But that demand is being fulfilled by jobs in other countries. Prior to 1970 we were a supplier nation. We produced way more then we consumed, including oil. Since 1970., an average of almost $500 billion a year of our wealth has flowed out of this country to the world as a balance of trade deficit. These persistent trade deficits have exported too much demand. There’s nothing wrong, and a lot right, with increased global trade. The problem comes when it stays out of balance for so long, as it has in America, with trade deficits averaging 5 percent of G.D.P. in the 2000s, compared with 1 percent in the 1990s. That’s millions of net jobs lost.
The solution is simple. Return the jobs to where the demand is.
