NAFTA :

Critical Failure To Recognize That The Community and Business Have Different Interests

The most prominent example of a failure to distinguish Wall Street from Main Street can be found in the case of NAFTA and the exuberant rhetoric that promoted it. As predicted the profits did grow for the business sector, but as Ross Perot said there was that, "sucking sound of the jobs going South." To be more accurate Ross could have mentioned it would be followed by an even greater sucking sound of jobs going to the Far East, but he made the point well enough and little good it did for employment here.

One of the little discussed outcomes of the Supreme Court Decision to allow anonymous Corporate funding of political candidates is that it will become harder to know if the candidates are being bought domestically or are they internationally purchased? Just whose pocket are they in? Right now it's simple to tell who belongs to who and if any doubt exists throw a dart at the Fortune 500 list and you can't be far off.

While there is a lot of pain on Main Street, the good news is that our betters here and in China are finding common ground and a level of camaraderie that transcends minor issues like capitalism and socialism
