12 Insure you can make a profit.

Those that are forced to work in the sweatshops of Asia at least have a job. About 25 years ago one could buy a used Mac II ci, made in the USA, for around $4,500. Today you can purchase a more powerful iMac for $1,000, made in China. Capitalism does not require loyalty to our country from its manufactures, and unions have forced the manufactures, by demanding pensions and wages so high that the manufactures in order to keep their stockholders content, another important part of Capitalism, the manufactures moved to overseas areas where they could make a profit. Capitalism requires profit to exist.
