If we are to have a nation in which workers get raises, isn’t it obvious that those wage gains will result in higher prices of goods? For so long the holy grail of (Globalization) economics has been predicated upon driving costs of goods lower in order to stimulate increased spending. This supported the rationale for moving labor overseas to impoverished nations. During this time American workers lost millions of jobs and those who remained employed went decades without a raise so that the elite, white collar worker could afford to buy more goods or have more money left over to pay landlords ever higher rents. This idiotic cycle has been at the root of the wealth and income gap that the Left has derided for so long, yet it is that same Left, led by the Clintons, that has embraced the move towards globalization that has so exacerbated the gap. (Note: Most Republicans until Trump also embraced the idea that globalization is a brilliant idea).
