Exports equal 32% of global economic output, but Exports equal 32% of global economic output, but only 13% of U.S. output. [U.S. supplies 1/8 of worlds exports] only 13% of U.S. output. [U.S. supplies 1/8 of worlds exports] American imports & exports$4.1 trillion. In 2010, American imports & exports totaled over $4.1 trillion. $1.832 trillion in exports$2,330 trillion in imports Deficit $498 B [$1.832 trillion in exports & $2,330 trillion in imports] [Deficit $498 B] Loonie David Ricardo No, it is comparative advantage that matters, not absolute advantage.

Actually this is a good thing. We get more choices, lower prices, & because more is bought, more jobs are created.
GlobalizationQ uestion : W hat is the definition of Globalization ? Princess Dianas deathAnswer: Princess Dianas death Question: How Come?

*1. National Defense Argument vital to our defense pens pottery peanuts papers candles thumbtacks tuna fishing pencils*1. National Defense Argument: certain industries should remain based in our country, especially if they manufacture items vital to our defense. Items this argument have been used for include: pens, pottery, peanuts, papers, candles, thumbtacks, tuna fishing, and pencils. *2. Infant Industry Argument mature enough to compete*2. Infant Industry Argument: new industries must be protected from older, established foreign competitors until they are mature enough to compete. However, removing protection is almost impossible. 3. Dumping Argument sale of goods abroad at a price below their cost3. Dumping Argument: domestic industries need to be protected from foreign dumping. Dumping is the sale of goods abroad at a price below their cost and therefore undersell domestic competitors to put them out of business; obtain monopoly power and raise their prices. 4. Foreign–Export–Subsidies Argument subsidize the firms that export goods4. Foreign–Export–Subsidies Argument: Some governments subsidize the firms that export goods. Firms say that this forces them to compete with both the firm and the government in question. * You can make a good argument for these.
5. Low Foreign Wages Argumentlow wage advantageoffset by its productivity disadvantage5. Low Foreign Wages Argument: A countrys low wage advantage may be offset by its productivity disadvantage. High wages means high productivity. Low wages mean low productivity. recentminimum wages Some recent minimum wages in other countries: Turkey: 41¢; India: 42¢, Hungary: $1.22, Brazil: $1.50, Mexico: $6 a day, Haiti: 68¢ or $5.50 per day; Indonesia: $1.06 a day [where Nikes are made]. worker productivity there is probably low cost Even though these wages are very low, worker productivity there is probably low. It may take several workers to do what one American worker can do. The more important question is what does it cost to do the job? Saving Domestic Jobs Argument previous arguments in disguiseSaving Domestic Jobs Argument: This argument is actually most of the previous arguments but in disguise.

all time high twice as much 19 million11 millionncreasingproductivitybuilding the same amount of stuff with fewer workers U.S. manufacturing is not dying. It is at an all time high. We are making more than twice as much today as we were in the 70s. However weve gone from 19 million manufacturing jobs to 11 million because of increasing productivity or building the same amount of stuff with fewer workers. Where will they go? High tech employs millions compared to almost none 50 years ago. twice as much with fewer workers 44% of jobs were in agriculture 2.2% today plowed fields curing cancer So, we are building twice as much with fewer workers. That trend will continue and then some. Health care. Clean energy. And fields we cant imagine yet. For instance, in 1900, 44% of jobs were in agriculture. Tremendous improvements in farm productivity pushed that number to 2.2% today. Those who once would have plowed fields now work at curing cancer, building roads, etc. We dont want those farm jobs back. So, all of you who thought U.S. manufacturing was dead TAKE That!!!
1. How many domestic jobs in the firms that produce good X are being saved because of the tariff? 2. How much do consumers have to pay in higher prices to save those jobs? HOW MUCH Lets just see HOW MUCH consumers do have to pay when we protect domestic jobs when we protect domestic jobs with tariffs and quotas.
12,000 x $40 = $480,000[NS-NT];12,000 X $25 = $300,000[S-T ] 12,000 x $40 = $480,000[NS-NT]; 12,000 X $25 = $300,000[S-T ] (It cost $180,000 to save one clock-radio guys job) Suppose Joe Export lives & works in the U.S. making dancing sells 12,000 clock radios. He produces and sells 12,000 clock radios per year price of $40 each at a price of $40 each. There is no international trade. U.S. market is openedto dancing clock radios One day the U.S. market is opened to dancing clock radios Japanese manufacturers have acomparative from Japan. The Japanese manufacturers have a comparative advantage and sell them for $25 each. Joe can not compete at this price. His sales drop to such a degree that he goes out of business. International trade has harmed him but helped American consumers because they save $180,000. I can do the econ rap.

High Cost of Protection $100 billion higher prices negative-sum game. High Cost of Protection It cost an average of $231,289 per job saved. Consumers pay $100 billion annually in higher prices. Protecting sugar raises candy and soft drink prices; protecting steel makes car prices higher. This is a negative-sum game. Free trade is a good idea for most of us despite the hardship it imposes on a few of us. So you can see that, Free trade is a good idea for most of us despite the hardship it imposes on a few of us.
Keep The Money At Home Point: Point: When I buy a coat in England, I have the coat and England has the money. But when I buy a coat in America, I have the coat and America has the money. America is more wealthy because it has both the coat and the money. Abe Lincoln Counterpoint: Counterpoint: Money is not wealth in and of itself, it merely facilitates trade. If America sends dollars to England, England will eventually use those dollars to buy American goods. If we dont buy goods from other countries, then other countries will not be able to buy goods from us.
Point: Point: Protecting businesses from foreign competition preserves American jobs. Counterpoint: Counterpoint: Few are helped by protective policies, but they are more visible and more vocal than the many who are hur t. Protecting jobs in import competing industries raising prices to consumers and costs jobs in industries that use imported inputs. America and consumers pay dearly each time protectionist measures save jobs.
Point2:preserved 4,598 Point2: Import quotas on Japanese autos preserved 4,598 American jobs American jobs. Counterpoint2:$241,235 Counterpoint2: but at a cost to consumers of $241,235 per job per job per year, in higher prices paid for cars. Saving a 30,000 auto job costconsumers $120,000 annually $30,000 auto job cost consumers $120,000 annually in higher prices.. Protecting American businesses from foreign competition does potentially preserve American jobs. Point 1: saved 17,000 Point 1: Restrictions on imported steel in the 80s saved 17,000 jobs jobs in the steel industry and its suppliers. Counterpoint: Counterpoint: That is half the story. Here is the rest of the story. saved 17,000 1. The higher steel prices saved 17,000 jobs in the steel loss of 52,400 jobs industry but led to the loss of 52,400 jobs in American steel-using industries. For every job saved, three were lost. In the last few years, tariffs have preserved 3,500 steel jobs; by contrast tariffs have cost steel users between 12,000 and 43,000 jobs due to higher prices. *The more you pay for protected goods, the less you have to use to buy other goods. The less consumers have to buy other goods, then fewer jobs will be created by the market.
Counterpoint: Counterpoint: Low wages, combined with low productivity, will result in high unit costs. High wages in the U.S. Result from the high productivity of American workers, aided by the availability of raw materials, massive capital equipment, sophisticated management, and elaborate infrastructure. Point: Point: If we trade freely with low wage countries, U.S. businesses will flee to those countries and U.S. wages will plummet.
I know you are against free trade as a former employee. But – how do you feel about free trade as a consumer?
