Concerning “Offshoring”: AFL - CIO Blog

“Olderworker”, I’m 57, am I an Older older worker or a younger older worker (i.e. than thee)?

Yes, you raise very legitimate and problematic concerns. Fundamental to such is the rampant inflation that has been going on in the USA, which puts North American Workers at a terrible disadvantage in the competitive job market.

Corollary to such is the prohibitive effect that the ridiculously inflated real “economic rents” and costs of capital assets have had on any entrepreneurial opportunities, already at great disadvantage to corporate diversification strategies and (now failing) economies of scale.

Concerning “stimulus” money such is a fundamentally destructive concept anyway in that it appears to assume the addiction to what I previously described as the specious fantasy of infinite economic growth within a finite earth in the solar system.

Secondly, this concept of “clean energy” is unfortunately an irreality.
