Here it comes. The communist “I told you so” moment.
Except for one little problem the author isn’t aware of:
Everything the east has it got from the US.
Shifting American industry and economy to China is not a “stunning success” – it’s the biggest heist in world history.
Bank robbers are “successful” too.
It’s just that China + India are better at it than everyone else.
Without American workers, American industry, and American capitalism, the east would still be a collapsed wreck today.
Impoverishing one group to lift up another is not improving anything, or “building” anything. It’s mere robbery, that’s all.
Americans are impoverished only because they’ve been robbed into poverty by China + India.
