JMHO: Beware of American ultra-nationalism from the left-and-right extremes.

Americans have net-benefit from free and WELL REGULATED global trade. In the short-term there is always going to be local pigs-at-the-trough fighting change, as well as resistance to the transformation of labor - never easy if you are one of them who worked for decades in that factory making batteries, soap or canning tomatoes. That was the case in the 1980's forward in my area once dominated by smokestacks and various factories. Now, if well-planned, they are needed housing and parks.

Trade encourages the growth of foreign economies and human rights (the right to a decent job and to make a living for yourself and families) and reduces wars and refugees. That must be factored.

What happens to workers in developing countries who now have jobs? What happens when there is finally a demand for an educated workers other than men for physical labor and fighting?

People will argue that these foreign jobs are lower wages and that isn't "fair;" but for those people in other countries working for at a sustainable wage compared to the past it can be a ticket out of grinding poverty and a chance for women to escape a gendered caste including the traditional "jobs" in bars, brothels or the streets that any man who has travelled the developing world (socialist or "capitalist") can tell you about in a candid discussion.

Other industries thrive in Americans when prices of consumer goods are lower and people can afford to out to eat, or attend cultural events because they didn't go into debt every month due to the retail cost-of-USA-only goods.

Desperate immigrants might not be flooding if their home country are better developed. we must lose the demagoguery and manage free trade balanced with human rights. HUMAN rights have NO BORDERS.

Again, JMHO and clearly in the minority.
