American jobs to communist China?
McCarthyism is still alive and well. I think in the case of China, the U.S. is borrowing so much money - and has been for long enough that they're not in a great position to play the protectionist.
A more evident reality is that 'globalization' (hate to use the word..) has changed the playing field in a way that is more conducive to a world-wide network of trade, people, ideas, and entertainment.
The committee would have a problem because if they were THAT against outsourcing, then the burden is pretty much on their own government to bring jobs back into the homeland.
I have a confession to make. I tabled this question in true courtroom lawyer (never ask a question to which you do not already know the answer) style.
America is losing out to China - jobswise - because the trans-nationational corporations: that ultimately own everything, are totally a-political, with no allegiance to anything other than profit.
Witness events in the news (the Wikki leaks) here you have a situation where American taxpayer's money is being spent supplying military aid to Pakistan - whilst Pakistan is supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan. The motive behind this 'anomaly' is profit.
