No texto que se segue basta trocar U.S. por: Espanha, França, Alemanha, Itália, ou Inglaterra para ter uma ideia do que pode acontecer um dia:
"But the big problem with consumer spending is that if you buy a product made outside the U.S., it doesn't encourage domestic investment. And that's what we really need. In the past, a dollar spent on a shirt would start a virtuous circle, as the clothing factory expanded, adding more workers and buying new sewing machines. That investment in new machines, in turn, would create more business for the sewing machine company, who would then hire more workers who would need new shirts.
Today, the cycle is happening overseas. We have a genuine investment shortfall in the U.S., where both business and government are way below historical norms for spending on equipment, buildings, software, and infrastructure."
