Why compete with a communist country with 800 million excess workers willing to work for peanuts if doing so is going to devastate your industries, throw Americans into the unemployment line, increase the national debt, and America more dependent on foreign countries?
We've got the biggest consumer market, let's use it to our advantage and put Americans back to work.
When we are back to full employment, we can talk about when and how to make use of cheap communist labor. But right now we are following an out-of-business strategy that is quickly reducing us to third world status.
The last five are currently being suppressed by Alinskyite politics. But they are not gone. If you bring them back (kicking out the EPA would be a good start) you will regain and retain industries.
And America now has the enormous bonus of 'Eagle Diesel'. That is beginning to make a huge difference. All you guys need to do to flourish is to remove the soft dead hand of Government intervention.
Remove that dead hand. Don't inject it with growth hormone. Don't insist on growing Government intervention by inflicting tariffs on yourselves.
It's good that you mention the American consumers: they will simply not be able to regenerate the economy while their buying power is being crushed by the voracious demands of Government.
The US citizenry need a sharply reduced tax and regulatory burden, just as much as US corporations do. The extreme & arbitrary burden of Obamacare is going to wipe out consumer purchases (just as much it's going to impair capital relocation).
