  • China is about to displace America because mercantilism beats free trade everytime. This is a historical fact that the American political elite refuses to either accept or deal with. The Republican Party’s free trade agenda has produced this state of affairs. As long as you continue a policy of offshoring production then there will be less producers and more takers.

    • That’s absolutely true, Eric. Both parties have accepted “free trade” as their policy, even though free trade is only for dupes and idiots and opens America to cheap, crappy imports from abroad and the stealing of American jobs and factories. America needs a mercantilist trade policy.
