I think that it is a major problem. Especially when we can literally account for the major job loss in massive imbalance of trade to one country and single political party. In which not only can the US do this but many other Free market and Democratic governments which have long been its enemies are in the same position.
As such if we have gained the normal 500,000 jobs or so that we lose or gain in trade, but still have not peaked on the necessary advent of the lower unemployment and a higher growth rate, due to single itnernational political party clout push, against free world and Democracies. We can see that basically we could regain around 76 trillion if the jobs we have left to gain is around 1.5 million. As this would then send the US into a surplus.
However, we have to have an across the board game plan to do this and a united front to regain and create new jobs at a middle wage income.
As we can higher 50,000 employees at miniumu wage but however, that still does not even account for a quarter of the income we need for our citizens to own homes, buy cars, travel and just live a good quality of life.
Personally if over 30 years the Communist still can't give their people running water and they have been the richest country in the world for some time. I say we take care of the US and our allies in Free markets and Democracy and let them go on their own. Again they have more FTA false created than the US does and even some markets placed together. They do not need us anymore and we are inuring huge determents from trading wit them.
