  1. Objectively, as the economy moves towards 100% employment, it becomes more and more difficult to annually add 2+ million jobs.
    With a few tweaks, there is a reasonable chance that the economy will return to strength when we come out of the C-virus tunnel. Especially, if US actually brings a “baseline” of critical manufacturing back to US.

    • I’m trying to understand how that bringing-manufacturing-back-to-the-U.S. idea works. Most mass industry shops in this country are unionized, which means you’re paying entry-level employees $20 — and even if they’re not unionized, you’re paying $14/$15 (starting wages — pathetic, I know). Compared to $4 or $5 in Mexico or Pakistan or China. Those jobs aren’t coming back to the U.S. or Canada. They may go to Vietnam or Cambodia or Brazil but, barring a collapse of the global economy, they’re not coming back here. American consumers will not — and cannot afford to — pay 2x, 3x, 4x for their cars and electronics and clothes. It’s hollow rhetoric designed to disguise the real agenda: global American hegemony today, tomorrow, for rest of the 21st century.
