92. What do you propose to do about it then?
I've never seen one suggestion on DU for that. Only hatred against "the corporations" and "the CEOs."

And how can this problem be solved? People won't even talk about it. They just assume Americans are entitled first and get outraged than any other nation gets in on any economic action.

Not a single proposal. And it is a tough question. Tariffs and the like will hurt too. And there is no way to get Americans to spend more for anything they can get cheaper. If that were the case, huge companies could not edge out small ones. We complain when WalMart takes over from the small shopkeeper, but never have a way to counter that. We just blame WalMart. What about the people who chose to go there just because it was cheaper?

Businesspeople deal with that reality. They are just your scapegoat for it.
