The Economically Illiterate in Hollywood
What the Third World needs are more multinational corporations, not less.
As more multinational corporations move into a poorer country, the people there not only get additional economic opportunities, they acquire skills and job experience that raise their productivity and earnings potential, even if that outrages the economically illiterate in Hollywood.
You'd think that even the least intelligent person would be able to understand this... Sowell has also said another truism: People work at the best-paying jobs they can get. When people are working just to put food on their tables, they do not take a $5-an-hour-paying job and turn down a $7 or $9-an-hour-paying one.
They go for the top pay--even if it's just $5. Thus, in third-world countries, if you take away that job--even if it's a 'sweatshop'--the people would have to work for less somewhere else, or perhaps have no job at all. I know the flipdips on the Left don't understand this... perhaps if they ever had to work that hard to put food on their own tables, they would.
