It seems to me that a huge problem with the US economy can be narrowed down to the US Dollar/Chinese Yuan exchange rate and other Asian countries that peg their currencies to the US Dollar. We are so addicted to cheap products that we have let China get away with this for years. So long in fact that US manufacturers canât compete here and move out or quit all together. China lets its currency rise slightly from time to time just to appease us but they blatantly keep their exchange rates low so they will drive our domestic manufacturing out of business. And we just let them do it. Everybody pounds the table wanting free trade but shouldnât the US impose some sort of tariff to help get its manufacturing back? I love Walmart and all that cheap stuff but what about a little pain so that we get our competitive edge back?
