I don’t know if there are any easy answers in this situation. If Chinese textile goods are cheaper and/or better cause the market says so, should we err on the side of protecting U.S. jobs, or are we just slowing an inevitable decline?
I’d like to see some examples of American textile companies using lean to get more competitive, instead of relying on government intervention and trade restrictions. Any comments?
