The Japanese have no ethnic strife, no racial strife. They are 100% Japanese over there. A such they have a lot better chance of pulling this off in a fair and rational way with minimal kickbacks and corruption. If this keeps more industry and jobs at home then this is a great idea if it can be done relatively cheaply

Obviously the Nips believe in protecting home industry and don't buy into the myth of free trade that only stupid Americans and Europeans pledge allegiance to like it came from God

A good part of our current economic mess is due to not actively trying to keep industry in America. By throttling the EPA and giving incentives for industries to not go offshore to China etc  -----  If we still had these jobs there would be a lot fewer Obama voters and fewer moochers. People vote socialist when the capitalist economy lets them down. So all you free trade Freepers --- now you get Obama-Care and get to pay higher taxes to support these people because they flock to Obama style socialism and they vote for it

It isn’t Free Trade that’s driving manufacturing jobs overseas.

Massive corporate taxation, limitless legal vulnerability, crushing environmental regulation and pro-Union arbitrary Government: these are why industry chooses to locate away from the USA.

The protectionism that you favor would be the final nail in the coffin. The last vestiges of American industry would be turned into feather-bedded welfare cases, and freeborn Americans would be forced to buy their stuff from the Government store.

Protectionism would also increase Government power. The Democrats would collect all of that lovely tariff money and spend it on union pension bailouts or some damn thing.

America has tied its own hands behind its back with a ludicrous knot of EPA regulations, crushing taxation and arbitrary Government (just ask Gibson’s guitars).

America needs to untie those knots - not wrap itself up in more of them in a fit of misplaced faux-patriotic anger.

At least the upcoming increase in domestic natural gas production in the US will greatly improve American competitiveness.

Of course, Japan probably fears more than anything, the ChiComs coming in and swooping up the companies.
