My short explanation is that everyone else has been growing other than the working class and middle class in the US and other Western countries. Manufacturing jobs off-shored to China and India. Good pay jobs disappearing, replaced low pay service jobs if any. The average income increasing while the median income is stagnated, if not decreasing. Sounds familiar, eh? :roll:

Then Thomas Friedman of NYT dares to declare that on average every US citizen benefits from globalization 10k$ per year. The key word is on average, the truth is that most lose.

That was my take. A longer and more understandable presentation below:



This two hour show is just for you, my friend. ;)

Part of the thing, but not all. And I don't see nothing wrong with the development. Though some trumpetists think that the poor in the mud houses are robbing them. :lol:

How about you?
