In january exports of US goods were worth $120 billion. The highest value ever. Not many western major economices can say the same. The trade deficit is 100% concentrated in energy and consumer goods sectors (not industrial supplies and capital goods). Overconsumption, borrowing too much is behind the gigantic trade deficits, NOT the lack of competitive industries. In fact, the US industrial outcome as a share of GDP (inflation adjusted) has remained pretty stable in last 60 years.

@cwa1984 The german example is good when global demand is strong. But their domestic market is still weak, so 54% of their industry depends on exports. Other european countries followed the same path: cut taxes for businesses (the german federal corporate tax rate is 15%) and maintain high taxation on consumption, labor and high-income individuals.

@68VietnamVet We The People Against Corruption in the Campaign to Remove and Indict Obama day 187. He is just a crooked attorney engaged in bank fraud. The import export bank industry is not in the interests of the USA. In 1999 it was stated that the United States was NOT the United States nor Canada nor Mexio. It is a very easy task to understand that fraud perpetrated in Arizona from the fraud of the estate of me deceased linked to the funding of 911 needs indictments.REPEAL&DUMP TOO. HRSiegal

I swear Larry Summers shouldn’t have even been allowed to finish out the rest of the year, disrespecting not only the President but the country since he’s representative of the nation while he’s bearer of the “office.” Texting on his phone and dosing off, grinning, Obama should have just said go back to Cambridge, Mass and I don’t worry about finishing this month off.

@groundhog2008 $3000 a month and half a mill invested isnt much.
that comes about to be about 50k a year in actual returns. also, in years like these, they can only rely on their pensions (which arent stable either)

there is no reason to give people with millions of dollars medicare though.

@bsharker President Obama did the right thing in stopping the drilling!!!! I guess you dont care if we have another disaster in the Golf!!!! Until we have more government regulations in place, we need to stop all drilling, and get more government oversite to make sure that the rules are followed!!!! But, I guess this will never happen with the “deregulating repubs” in office!!!! The number one enemy of America, I believe is the republican party!!!!

Social Security needs to be overhauled!! There are unfair policies in the way money is paid out!!!! For example, there are many retirees in America who are receiving $3,000 a month pension, has $500,000 in their IRA. Then on top of that, the same person is receiving $2,000 a month in Social Security!!!! THAT IS NOT FAIR!!!! The SS money should go to the poor, and middle class that truely needs the money!!!! I do wonder, why aren’t people standing up against this kind of corruption?!?!?

@bsharker Your an idiot. You obviously have no idea about politics and that its the Republicans that are in the forefront of helping businesses move overseas. But I don’t want to get into a who’s better between the two parties. Because frankly they are the same. You should pick your head out of your ass and realize that they don’t work for the people who elect them. Its all about the money.

@dobba92 I haven’t watched any cable news network in 10 years. I get my news from website and youtube bloggers. Maybe you should do the same.

They just don’t want you to hear sensitive material so they blip some lines out.

This was actually pretty good meeting with a lot of common sense. They absolutely right to stress about the American public generally not knowing how trade works and from the comments on here I’d say they need to keep pressure on Congress and the Presidency to educate the public on this matter. Taking points from Germany is good and so is the strategy of signing more free trade deals. One thing that did bother me was tourism I just don’t see that becoming big I do agree about VISAs though.
