Well if you put the tax burden on the product and not where it came from, the overseas production will not have the huge cost advantage it enjoys now. Jobs will follow the money and most will stay here, and many more will return. Its called free enterprise.
I just cannot see it. It costs a lot for a worker here to support his family. His wages cannot compete. I don't see how they can even if transportation costs are included to import the goods from foreign production.
Besides, outsourcing offshore to developing countries is something supported by both the conservative "free traders" and the New Democrat Third Way progressives and their chattering class allies around the world. They want to "raise everyone's boat."
That's called ideology and it needs the free market. The "free trader" free enterprise folks make money and are happy to help.
