Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The USA also needs to reverse the tax incentives that reward manufacturers for 'off-shoring' production. If it is our goal to return manufacturing to the USA we must change all of the perverse incentives we set up at the behest of neo-liberal looters. China needs access to the US market more than we need goods manufactured in China - IF we create domestic sources for that manufacturing. That requires actual planning - currently an ideological taboo.
