As globalization becomes less about the future of business and more about current happenings; America as a whole has some introspective soul searching to do. America has enjoyed so much prosperity that, in general, we assume it is destined to continue without too much effort. Now that we are seeing and feeling the effects of a recession things must change. As stated in this article, America has to start acting. With this being an election year politicians need to take an economic refresher course. We all can agree that when we import illegal immigrants to take US jobs unemployment rises and wages become depressed. The concept we are not grasping as a nation is that importing Chinese garbage, otherwise known as goods, does the same thing. It’s time for politicians and citizens alike to make a global stand for our economy and put principles of sound business into practice.
