American wages have been declining since 1970, and American’s buying power has followed that same trend. THAT is not apathy, just simple loss of buying power.

This whole “buy American” mentality is misguided. Read up on Deming and how his QC through employee empowerment changed Japan junk into high tech and how this same methodology is changing Asia, and particularly China manufacturing. The junk that has been coming out of China is quickly being replaced with higher and higher quality product, just as it happened in Japan. China built its infrastructure (factories) and employed thousands making junk, but those employees HAD A JOB. As the factories upgrade to better technology, China still has an employed workforce ready and willing to upgrade as well. Pay attention folks, it won’t be that many more years until when China will be king of technology AND manufacturing expertise. An example… try to buy a flatscreen “anything” that is not made in China.

American corporations will have nothing to do with empowering employees (Deming) and thus America has lost the one thing that originally made us great.
