    it WILL bring manufacturing back to the states.

    that'll help china, in the long run (in the short run they're fucked either way) definitely help americans in the long run, and it will change the model of a goal economy.

    Everything in Canada is super expensive now. The Canadian dollar is about equal. It was worth 60-70 cents to the U.S. dollar a few years ago. Crazy.

    Dude, this country will have to invest shit tons in infrastructure if manufacturing is to rise again. The whole country has been dilapidated for 3 decades in favor of strip malls.

    But I sure do hope for nothing more than manufacturing, an active state in basic needs, and multi-lateral (vs. hegemonic) foreign relations. The average american would live better, IMO.

    No it won't bring manufacturing jobs back to the states. That is ridiculous! The manufacturing jobs that have left are certainly not coming back, nor is that even part of the plan. If you read the Club of Rome documents going back to the 70s, you will see the long-terms plans were to gut the manufacturing base in this country, and this is precisely what has happened. This country is pretty much toast. Stick a fork in the US because it is done.

    By any chance you know what the CoR had to say about Aus?

    The same thing because they were referring to the developed nations in general, though they did place a particular emphasis on the US. But if you look all across the Western and developed nations, you see the same thing with jobs being outsourced to China. Everything they said would happen back in the 70s is happening now, and it's definitely not a coincidence.
