33. It is nice that Asia is "looking toward" us. How flattering.
But they need to buy more of our products. Trade is one way, and that cannot work. They export, and we import. We can't be number one when we have dwindling and next to no industrial capacity compared to China.

I do not believe that Asia is looking toward us at all. They are buying cheap Chinese goods just like everybody else. Haven't they ever heard about those sales where you get a great offer and then when you get in the store you learn that the item has been sold out? That is where we are on free trade. Our leaders promised us a good deal and then forgot and sold out.
