You haven't watched Independence Day have you? Roswell and Area 51 are on the list of things they don't tell the President in order to ensure plausible deniability.

Even the apologists of industrialism have been obliged to admit that some economic evils follow in the wake of the machines. These are such as overproduction, unemployment, and a growing inequality in the distribution of wealth. But the remedies proposed by the apologists are always homeopathic. They expect the evils to disappear when we have bigger and better machines, and more of them. Their remedial programs, therefore, look forward to more industrialism.

But what if Trumps incompetence is actually a cover up to make us think all the conspiracies are fake?

Moving production doesn't move where they are taxed.

Even if I cut corporate tax to 5% they'd make even more money if they just move production overseas where they dont have to worry about silly things like minimum wage and working conditions.

It's an important element of it, as can be seen with Kansas. Without that growth replacing the taxes, the entire idea falls apart.

Grand Britannia wrote:

Nothing. But forcing them to stay here can and will lead to layoffs, shutdowns, bankruptcies and ultimately, automation. Instead of saving doomed jobs, we should focus on creating new jobs for the people at risk.

It does none of those things, companies move production overseas to increase their profit margin, not because they are desperately running out of cash.

They should be given incentives to expand domestically and punished if they take the jobs out of the country.
