How could the First World have had so little foresight as to let China, of all nations, be the sole source of so much of its manufactured products?
Millions of people have long predicted the predicament we’re in right now. It didn’t take a high IQ or Ph.D. in economics to see it coming. But
the big shots who run the companies and our elected “leaders” only thought of immediate profits and cheap consumer goods. Unfortunately, millions
of Americans who lost their good-paying jobs to China can’t afford to buy as much stuff anymore, even if it is cheaper. And too many seek
relief from despair through opiates. Maybe something good will come of this pandemic — a rebirth of manufacturing in America and a flight from China
by foreign firms.
