Main message of this article in the WSJ Opinion section that the - "New GDP revisions show the worst recovery in 70 years was even weaker"- is spot-on and many of the solutions as well. One glaring missing one issue, no surprise here for WSJ, is the absence of the biggest contributor of all--the FAILED TRADE POLICIES of the last 30 years. Our mission of Free Trade has been trumped by global TRADE MERCANTILISM and we continue to ignore this Trade War and refuse to engage with the massive corrective action needed. Result? We continue to ...add to our $11 Trillion accumulated trade deficit, lose million of high paying jobs-net of any gained by exporting, an anemic economic growth of less than 2% since 2000, stagnant or decreasing wages,etc...the list goes on. If you look at where the jobs lost in the Great Recession came from, 70+% came from the manufacturing and construction sectors and the service Jobs associated with them. 40% directly from the first two! We have failed to focus on rebuilding these two important sectors of our economy. This is a gross failure in Leadership in both the private and public sectors, and by both political party's. Americas Middle Class and future generations have and will continue to pay the heavy price of these failures. How we got here and what needs doing to put us back on track is what my book "American Made" is all about. Every Congressman has received on and so have the candidates for President. Call, write, visit, e-mail them and tell them to read it and WAKE-UP!
