Mao, that Walmart brought many jobs to Newberry Township and will add to their tax base. It's an opportunity for college students, retirees and homemakers to earn a few extra dollars. I don't know where you live but in this area (Newberry Township and surrounding municipalities) there was very little retail. Even the most minimal purchases required a 20 mile hike each way to Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg or York. While I don't shop at Walmart much, I will use it for odds and ends so I can save some gas and time. Walmart has already donated significant funds to Newberry Township non-profit groups... how can you fault that?

DUH! Because we can't afford to pay our overpaid under skilled lazy union workers! They've forced us to ship material overseas to have things made and shipped back.

No... China deliberately values their currency far below what it should be and undermines our economy in the process by buying up our T-Bills (to obtain a supply of US Dollars to trade for Yuan).

Because the Yuan is artificially low, their exports are considerably cheaper by comparison. Right now, their economy SHOULD be as strong, or stronger, than ours. Prices of their products should also be much higher than it is. However, if they let their currency "float", like the rest of the world does, they'll lose a large portion of their income from exports.

The more Chinese goods we buy, the more we feed the cycle of China buying up our debt. Now, we owe so damn much to China to pay out the T-Bills that we have no more leverage to "force" China to play by the rules and start floating their currency.
