Not quite, IMHO.
It isn't consumer greed, but CORPORATE greed that is doing it. Outsourcing
is the buzzword right now. Dump your employees, avoid the frustration, have
slave labor in Asia make the product, anb then sell the crap in the USA..
Why do you think the middle class has all but disappeared. There are now
37,000,000 living below the defined poverty level.
People buy at WalMart because that is the cheapest place in town (to the
eye of the public) and most people have to count their pennies.
This concept has been lauded by Republicans as free trade, and free trade
equals 'democracy', doncha know?
The Democrats are too disordered to laud anything.
..... and who are corporations made up of? People! That includes
I find it interesting that you say people buy at Wal-Mart because
the need to save money but when talking about Corporations you don't
acknowledge that they need to save money too -- to be competitive or
go out of business. So, why is it OK for consumers to be concerned
about their bottom line but it's not OK for corporations (and the
PEOPLE that run them and the PEOPLE that own stock in them) to also
worry about saving money? Corporate officers have a responsibility
to their shareholders to stay competitive. I don't disagree that
they've not been successful all the time but you are ignoring the
need for corporate competitiveness and fiscal responsibility (i.e.,
the bottom line) while complaining about the need for similar traits
Fairly wide, sweeping generalizations don't you think?
You may not be aware of the fact that most all foreign car companies
(including Honda and Toyota) assembly thousands of vehicles in America. I
believe that all car companies (including GM and Ford) have many of the
car parts made in foreign countries. They do this since they would have to
pay American workers twice as much to make those same products. They
assembly cars in America so they won't have to pay to ship the cars to
America or pay import fees.

you got it - the big corps are the modern day feudal warlords
loyal only to themselves, they epitomize the word TRAITOR
and anyone who deals in or with their stock is a traitor too...
only buy shares and products from companies that are not traitorous ingrates
that have grown fat on the labor of citizens only to screw them
blind when they see the fat profits available from slave labor overseas
pretty soon *you* will be a slave too, if you let them keep going
ps: do you think the majority of baby boomers are going to get retirement
not a hope - it is cheaper for corps to run overseas and not pay a penny
