    And I'll bet over half of them work for Mainstays, making all the Chinese stuff that Walmart sells.
    The money spent at Walmart supports the Chinese middle class.

    Those jobs should be in America and supporting the American middle class.

    Yeah..............the chinese are going to drag the world economy into prosperity, that is and has been the plan all along..........I just don't see it working that way.

    At least they don't call them the "five year plan" like they did with Stalin.

    The world's economies seem to be following the 20 year cycles observed and predicted by John Naisbitt in his book Megatrends.
