"but our economy's bias towards spending does insulate it a bit from the rest world's economic problems"

The problem is our bias is towards spending other peoples money, which which the others have earned by producing more things of intrinsic value than we do.

We “manufacture” more than China and Russia combined.

We don’t, however, “assemble” more than China.

I think it’s an important distinction.

Apple is bringing back assembly of a few of their computer models because we already manufacture most of the parts here. They simply assemble them in China.

Assembly jobs are not what America wants. They are practically below-minimum wage jobs because an 8 year old can do it.

Manufacturing jobs, however - turning a chunk of steel into an engine block - we need that.

There is a difference between a cog and a craftsman.


We do, however, need to step up our job training for CNC machine techs, etc.

If you can pollute all you please and pay your people pennies, what do you expect.

In 2010, China just barely edged out the United States as the world's top manufacturer by output -- a distinction it hadn't held since 1850.

Very skeptical China was world's largest manufacturer in 1850.

Just four years after he tried to sell Appliance Park, believing it to be a relic of an era GE had transcended, he’s spending some $800 million to bring the place back to life. “I don’t do that because I run a charity,” he said at a public event in September. I do that because I think we can do it here and make more money.

Yeah dumb ass. That's what some of us have been trying to tell you and others for twenty years. At least you finally listened.

There's a massive labor force out there, that has twenty years of production missing from their lives. How's it feel to know you contributed to that?

That's in current U.S. dollars .If you factor in inflation then U.S. manufacturing is not growing at all while china's growth is still skyrocketing.
