Never said we aren’t getting screwed on import/exports. We’re getting a big rigid shaft there. But no, we are using tons more imports than domestic items. Places like WalMarks rarely sell an American made item anymore (though they are now claiming they are selling more USA made stuff). They made their fortune off Chinese junk. I’d imagine if one were to live off just domestic products, you’d have to be well paid, just to get by. Yes, there would be growing pains. The question is, could we survive those, or would it send our whole society into poverty. We should shift back to “Buy American”, but it can’t be done quickly. It briefs well, but IMO wouldn’t be sustainable.
