They're being little pigs. They want our secrets and now our workers. Seriously, I am glad they are coming and I believe it will be beneficial to both countries. China today is the Japan forty years ago as far as economies, imports, exports, etc. Japan turned out O.K. We need to befriend China and lose the backstabbing partners like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

I would not put Communist China in the same boat of importance as Saudi Arabia & Venezuela. No even close. There is no benefit, except to enrich a few, in shifting work to other countries. It only destroys this economy in the long run.

There are a ton of IT workers here in Charlotte working for Wells up at the CTC on Harris Blvd. It's not good for this city if they disappear.

Agee, taking a company from another state is not win win for the country. Developing new industry is the way to go.

She is simply saying that taking an industry from one state and moving it to another is not an overall advantage for the country (or republic is you wish). It is only an advantage to the gaining state and the losing state suffers. But an industry moving to this country is an advantage as there is nobody in the U.S. loses.
