http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Plan#Implementation Marshall Plan expenditures by nation, top received largest sum. United Kingdom France Germany Italy and Trieste Netherlands Belgium and Luxembourg Austria Denmark Greece Norway . . . Ever since I became a protectionist in 2005 I've become increasingly paranoid at the level of propaganda and brainwashing Americans are exposed to. There is more propaganda and brainwashing in America than there was in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, or even Orwell's 1984 book. Smith in the 1984 story knew more about Airstrip One's history than Americans know of American history. Smith had to be tortured into believing something that isn't true, you guys voluntarily believe falsities. Creepy.

-"Late 19th century" Happened after the free traders in the south were killed en masse, and the highest tariffs in American history were passed by the Lincoln Republicans. -"Immediately after WW2" Happened after Europe and Asia had been bombed into oblivion, so it didn't matter if tariffs were reduced. Those tariffs were reduced to find allies in the Cold War, it had nothing to do with free trade talking points but practical politics. -"The 1980's" micro-boom happened after a small amount of savings the rich had hoarded up was spent all at once. Notice how maintaining the low taxes on the rich past the 1980's didn't do anything additional since the rich had already spent their hoarded dragon gold.

We're never going unite to defeat the globalists with partisans like you around.

To translate ConcealedCarry: "I believe in the unemployment numbers the government gives me, yes only 7.8% of all 314 million Americans are unemployed meaning everyone over the age of 5 has a job and nobody retires." "I believe the DOW Jones is actually a good indicator of American industrial healthiness even though a majority of the companies in the DOW Jones index are either service industries or employ more foreigners than Americans."

"The Industrial Production Index (IPI) is an economic indicator published by the Federal Reserve Board of the United States that measures the real production output of manufacturing, mining, and utilities. Production indexes are computed mainly as fisher indexes with the weights based on annual estimates of value added. Since Fisher indexes only preserve growth information, the value in the base year (currently 2007) is arbitrarily set at 100.[1][2] This index, along with other industrial indexes and construction, accounts for the bulk of the variation in national output over the duration of the business cycle." The only thing this graph proves is that technology and science improves industrial output, not the greedy merchant class.

Good for you, unfortunately the only real solution is flat tariffs on imports from countries like China, Mexico, Indonesia, etc.

Unfortunately those 1.1 million jobs are either government jobs or government contracted jobs for Green stuff that could never turn a profit on their own. Good job creating this mess free traders.

Last time I checked prices have gone up, particularly in imports like oil. The only thing that has not gone up in price (relative to income/inflation minus fuel/import costs) and/or improved in quality while prices remain constant are Made in America items like food and PC core processors.

"Reminder that service jobs are for the most part not exportable" That's what mass immigration is for.
