Abstract:

How can we stem the tide of outsourcing? In this comprehensive look at the real, human toll of America's unsound trade policy, Senator Dorgan exposes the myth of "free trade." Indeed, free trade is not free; it is slowly but surely draining away American prosperity. Chinese labor can drive down prices at Wal-Mart; but at the same time, those saved wages--dollars that would have gone to buy these cheaper goods--are gone. Too soon, it will all come crashing down. Major U.S. corporations continue outsourcing jobs overseas and, because of their influence in Washington, avoid paying billions in taxes. Many dollars that these companies fleece from the American people go to investments in expanding production capabilities overseas. In short, our government is in the grip of corporate and foreign interests, and the American worker has born the brunt of this culture of corruption.--From publisher description.
