@JustinWolfers Repatriation WILL help cos invest that couldn't or wouldn't run up debts. But Apple still not increasing mfg in USA. Tax reform missed a chance to incentivize US mfg. 5M ppl left mfg in US, shortage of good jobs, & Apple still wants to bring in foreign workers to hold down costs.
@Noahpinion This year's goods deficit is on track to come in at $800B, call it 4% of GDP. And if you argue that has no impact on jobs, revenue, or profits of goods-producers, how quickly do you think the people and companies shift into services?
@stephen_tapp Hi there--consider inviting someone from CPA (Coalition for a Prosperous America) for the alternative view on trade! Rgds, JF
@jodiecongirl If free stuff today wipes out a domestic industry w strong growth potential, ban it. Hamilton & Lincoln thought that way.
@Noahpinion Thanks Emily Blanchard! Solid increase to 1999 and stagnation since. It is globalization at work. US wages tending to global average.
