So many people seem to be against Trade, right now we are talking about how TTP is bad for our Country. What so many people are saying is bad for the Country does not seem to be logical to me and here is why.
Throughout History, trade has been essential to the lively hood to Empires and Countries. Trade can be traced back to Ancient Greece, Egypt, Rome, the Vikings, Orient, Europe and more. Trade routes were everywhere throughout the World. Trade has continued to be a great source for economic growth throughout the world. So when trade brings great economic growth throughout the world how can it be bad for our Country?
It doesn't take jobs out of our Country it makes it possible for those Companies here to obtain parts to create things that we do not have here. That is a good thing because the more that is available to us to help Companies grow then it will also create more jobs. Again I am asking why do people think that trade is so bad.
Think about this for a moment, we have companies like Amazon and E-bay who started out only selling here in our Country they now serve Europe. Why do I bring this up? Easy, it is because since they started to sell in other Countries they have grown and they have created many jobs throughout the United States. That has been a good thing for our Country.
Trade doesn't mean we have to move our Companies to another Country, it does not mean we have to buy things from other Countries that we already have. It means we will have access to those things we do not have. It will build our Country and we will have great Economic growth.
As for the Companies that are leaving our Country or those that are outsourcing to another Country, that has nothing to do with trade it does have an impact on jobs. So what do we do about that? Easy, we make the taxes higher for anyone who outsources to another Country and for any company that stays in the U.S or doesn't outsource to another Country should have better tax breaks for keeping it here and the more people they higher they should also have a credit for that as well. We incentify these Companies and those who do not stay in our Country or use what our Country has to offer then they have to receive a penalty.
So while some of us do not like trade think about how good it is for the Country, think about the things that can not only bring us economic growth but how we can grow our Country through it. I am not an economist however, I do believe that the economist would agree with me on how trade is so good for our economic growth.
Please note that while I enjoy a good discussion, I did not write this article to get into a debate over Trump and his economic theory nor did I write it to get into a fight with anyone over Politics or our current political environment. These are just my thoughts about trade, based on the history of trade. I do welcome people's thoughts and opinions I just want to stay away from the election at the moment because I am so tired of it occupying every discussion we have. I thank you and hope that we will have an interesting conversation.
