The USA has been trading with China for many years. The problem is, China has been sending their products to the USA but they have not allowed us to sell USA made products in china. Huge corporations have moved their companies overseas for profit. Once they have moved to China, China pirates their software and any plans, products etc. Within a few years, China starts building these products and sold at a lower price around the world. This sends these USA companies out of business. We are indebted to China for approximately 3 trillion dollars. Walmart carries over 91% of China made products. There isn't a cell phone, computer and most all of our shoes are all from China. In fact, its very difficult to find USA made products. If we continue as Americans to purchase these products in Walmart stores and alike, we are supporting China, harsh abuse and child labor/punishment. There is so much more going on than we can possibly imagine. The best way to know exactly whats going on between China and the USA, watch DEATH BY CHINA. You will be shocked!
In 2001, China joined the World Trade Organization with the strong support of a Democratic President and Republican Congress. Before the ink was dry on this free trade agreement, China began flooding U.S. markets with illegally subsidized exports while the big multinational companies that had lobbied heavily for the agreement rapidly accelerated the off shoring of American jobs to China. Today, as a result of the biggest shell game in American history, China has stolen millions of our jobs, corporate profits are soaring, and we now owe over $3 trillion to the world's largest totalitarian nation. This film is about how that happened... and why the best jobs program for America is trade reform with China.
