Now, a headline like that should raise the question in any inquiring mind, how many jobs have we lost because of China’s cheating and restrictive tariffs? But when it comes to reporters suffering from TDS, that question never arises. The answer, by the way, ranges from estimates of 2.4 million to 3.4 million, and that’s just through 2015.
Between 2001 and 2015, around 3.4 million U.S. jobs, three-fourths of which were in the manufacturing sector, were lost as a result of the trade deficit with China, a report from the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute shows. From the time China joined the World Trade Organization to 2015, the U.S. trade deficit expanded from $83 billion to $367.2 billion.
And that doesn’t include the billions of dollars of trade secrets stolen by China from U.S. companies. It took me about 5 seconds to DuckDuck “U.S. jobs lost to China”; the fact that this reporter couldn’t be bothered to make the same effort says all that needs to be said about our mass media, the enemy of the people.
