In your opinion, what is better for the economy: cheap consumer goods or having a lot of decent jobs available?
I am thinking of how we used to have a lot of decent jobs available – companies hired, factories hired, jobs were everywhere (1950’s – 1980’s). Now the jobs are overseas but we have a ton of cheap consumer goods – clothes, electronics, appliances, you name it.
What do you think is better – more jobs of a better quality or cheap consumer goods?
