But in contrast to my friend, there are truly hateful, frightened, powerless, uneducated people who want to shake up the whole system, a system that really HAS been unkind to them because of the way they have ended up — without the skills or knowledge to be part of the new economy.

Here lies the issue, problem and solution. America’s reaction to these changing times (in terms of trade) should be to ensure more people end up with relevant skills that will allow them lead such a global economy. That may involve improving even the cheapest form of education.

Getting a strong man president to renegotiate all your trade deals won’t really help much and may cause a faster downfall and a crunch for the middle & lower class if care is not taken.
