Pat Buchanan

Between one-fourth and one-third of all U.S. manufacturing jobs have disappeared in 10 years, the fruits of a free-trade ideology that has proven anything but free for this country. Our future is being outsourced—to China.

What happens to mechanical engineering as a profession and career?

Engineering jobs

Pat Buchanan, “The metrics of national decline.”

With China exporting five times the dollar volume in goods to us as she imports from us, Beijing’s trade surplus with the United States set yet another world record: $266 billion.

In those critical items the Commerce Department defines as advanced technology products (ATP), our trade deficit with China in 2008 reached an astonishing $72 billion. Since Bush took office, our total trade deficit with China in ATP exceeds $300 billion. Which of us, China or America, has the trade profile of a mature industrial and technological power?

    everything done here is done to appease the banksters apparently. wrecking the middle class through outsourcing jobs, insourcing hypercheap sub-market competition just makes people unable to buy much of anything without going into debt, a creditors-dream economy if there ever was one. whats pathetic, as michael bloomberg almost found out in the latest ny mayorial race, is that the newcomers vote. bloomberg, despite spending what-should-be-an illegally-large amount of money to win a mayorial election, almost lost, due to most of the votes being cast by non-whites. ny is getting whiter though (because of the cost of living being higher and higher) and thus the power-elite may save the office in their own back yard by pricing everybody else out of living there, a sort of city-wide gate community replete with a pseudo police state in which almost all civic action is survielled via camera….

    man i’m getting cynical as the years go by.
