We are seeing the problems globalization creates in these trying times. With a Country so dependent on cheap labor abroad, the U.S. is ill prepared to handle shortages of essential manufactured goods/equipment during times of world wars or pandemics. Look at how China is even donating equipment to countries like Italy and we, struggling and needing to invoke the defense production act to force companies to manufacture what is required. The dependency on other Countries economically also creates major problems during pandemics, when shutting off a foreign Country completely is not a viable option. Had the United States had a bigger manufacturing capacity, a protected manufacturing industry, it would not be so dependent on Countries like China, for essential goods. Had the United States not depended so much on Global supply chain, we could've cut off all travel and fared better. it is not all about making profits, industries needed during times of war or pandemics need to be protected. Japan does this to a certain extent, U.S. does not. We need to make sure we can produce our own energy resources, food and manufacture all essential equipment/goods necessary for basic existence. We should've cut off China completely early on and the rest of the world as-well, we could've prevented even 1 single case in U.S. Now we have 100k> and will probably turn into millions. This pandemic will make us re-think our approach to globalization. When some speak of nationalism and re-building our manufacturing industry and making us energy independent, it is not racism or isolationism. It is a basic and prudent approach, to make sure U.S. is not too dependent on other Countries during times of world wars and pandemics. Time to re-brand 'nationalism' as inherently American and morally right. Time to make sure that we protect our manufacturing industries going forward, re-build our decimated manufacturing industry. Time to look at Globalization in a different light, being too dependent on the rest of the world can be devastating during times of world crisis.
