Welcome back Toussaint.

I see that you remain firm in your "free market globalism."

quote:
It is not at all obvious that A's gain is B's loss. That's why your argument about manufacturing jobs fell flat.

If a US company takes its profits and invests them in China, tell me, who has "lost" something? Investment seekers in the US may have "lost" competition for investment dollars, but they have not lost anything tangible. They are just as well off as they were before the US company decided to invest its profits.

Some specific group may not be as well off as they could have been, but that does not mean "worse off" for zero-sum purposes.


Yet, you refuse to recognize that with globalism there are in fact losers that really weren't even in the game.

You ask:

I say ask any of the 100's of thousands of US employees that lost their sources of livelihood.

For those above, globalism is in fact a zero-sum game.

The globalism that you promote is exploitively as well as myopic. But for a Black person to support, let alone, promote a system that has systemically shut out Black folk here, and exploited Black folk abroad is ... Confused

But then again, we've done this dance before. Again, welcome back.
