Why can't we just ban foreign imports and force people to buy American?
Then all those greedy fat cats can't exploit third world workers and we can bring manufacturing jobs back to America by giving consumers no choice but to buy American. Wouldn't it be awesome if all the computers and cars and stuff was made in America? It would be cheaper too because we wouldn't have to ship it across the ocean.

"It would be cheaper too because we wouldn't have to ship it across the ocean." Wrong! It would be much more expensive. The reason that companies move manufacturing overseas is that they can produce it and ship it back to the US cheaper than they can make it in the US.

Most goods would easily increase in price by several times..... Foreign workers earn a lot less and it will show up in prices... Learn some economics... Think the poor are poor now... Wait till a cheap car is 30K because all the parts are manufactured domestically
