It's a good thing

Oh, please don't feel that way, Tin Can!
As a result of IKEA, I'm firmly convinced someone is eating tonight that might not otherwise. As time goes by, hopefully, things in those places will improve through trade with the US (even though it looks like poverty to us, it probably looks like blessings to them)
I'm through,
jerry

It used to be that way in Mexico, Korea, India, Thailand, etc. The companies go where they can get labor cheap, the standard of living gradually improves in that country because of the influx of trade, (or maybe in spite of it). Eventually the standard of living improves to the point where the children no longer have to work to eat. It may take 20 years or more, but it does get better in time. Not offering an opinion either way, but that is a continuing pattern.

Well I'm convinced. I can keep driving 5 hours to IKEA, supporting children in foreign countries, supporting the local quick lube, supporting gas stations along the way, and being completely happy with my IKEA life.
