Why couldn't we have done what we did to China, With Mexico?

Instead of sending jobs to china we should've sent them to Mexico and killed two birds with 1 stone.

If we gave them jobs so many wouldn't have immigrated here.

    I'm guessing you don't like Mexicans... for whatever reason this doesn't imply you are a racist.

    Anyhow, economic analysis suggested that profits (even with Pacific shipping costs) were maximum if they were to settle in China.

    Also, the efficiency of the Chinese is much greater than that of Mexico.

    Look at China. It's developing quite fast. All possible with a large influx of dollars as well as other currencies.

    By the way, look at China. The location is great so that shipping is available to first world countries such as Australia. It is also the midpoint to Europe.

    There's a significant difference in the workforce stability, education levels and technological capability of China v. Mexico.

    When I moved assembly processes to Mexico, we had to make everything as low-tech as possible, and had manual labor doing assembly work that was done by automation here.

    The Chinese workforce has huge technological capability.

    Do not worry the auto industry is big in Mexico you know Obama Motors, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, and many European. Many american food processors, China still provides cheaper labour so it is getting more than the rest.

    We sent them to Mexico first.

    Have you never heard of maquiladores?

    Then China undercut them and took the business.

    But then the Chinese would immigrate here... Seriously though, have you ever heard of labor laws?! China doesnt have them because they are communist but Mexico does.

    We tried with the establishment of "free trade zones" inside of Mexico.

    Who in the h@ll is "we"?

    As US richclass (and not you, and certainly not me) steal US industry and relocate to exploit slave labor overseas, the only thing "we" will have to do with it is to be laid off, sit back, watch, and starve.
