If so many American jobs have been decimated by robotics, why are there so many factories, and factory workers, in China and other emerging markets?

I don’t argue that this may become an issue, but I call “bogus” today. We have been decimated by countries that don’t share or call for the same worker and environmental protections.

That is not to blame China and the like, they want what we have too. But let’s not spin fairy tales to support the profits of the few via multi-national globalism. The economic circumstances we see in the U.S. are neither accidental, inevitable, nor because of robots.
