If the U.S. loses more of its share of manufactured goods to China, we lose our ability to create advances in technology and innovation. The U.S. now manufactures 19.4% of world's manufactured goods, guess how much China makes? 19.8%! I thought it would be more but figure that the U.S. used to make close to 30% in the 1970s. We’ve all heard this before, and the half-time commercial during the Super Bowl was a powerful representation of the American desire to begin our "second half." However I have a hard time with the argument that we need more manufacturing simply because we need more jobs.
