Our trouble is all the Americans - and their political champions - who want a European-style welfare state but not the taxes Europeans pay to support same. In Sweden it got so bad that some would have had to borrow to pay their income tax since it was higher than their total income, e.g. the gal who wrote "Pipi Longstockings," and that on top of sales, or VAT, taxes that average close to 20% (100% on some items when I lived there). Northern European workers were smart enough to understand they had to share with others to have their welfare systems, and not so stupid as to believe they could just tap the rich or endlessly borrow from other countries, a la Greece, Italy, Spain and guess who else: America's Democrats and one Barrack Hussein Obama.

So true, soundco; all cost of production must be reflected in prices if a business is to prosper. Problem is that the US is no longer a closed economy and US producers must compete with foreign producers. But try explaining that to trade union leaders (I tried all my life) or such economic simpletons (ideologues?) as Obama, Reid, Pelosi et al.
