The U.S.A. represents only 4% of the World’s population. Within a decade 2.5%. This means that 97.5% of the customers for any products consumed by humans are to be found outside of the U.S.A.
Every $50,000 in exports creates a new job in the U.S.A. Exports create jobs!
Trading internally in the U.S.A. is like you selling your made products or services to only those inside your own family house. Peter to Paulina and Paulina to Peter does not bring any new income into the household. Only by trading outside of your house does your household income increase.
Exports and World trade bring peace. People do not kill their customers or their valued suppliers of needed and wanted goods.
Exports and World trade put people in contact with each other and misconceptions and fears about each other are broken down.
Exporters learn that people are basically all the same. Decent folks that want to make a good life for their families.
- Income from exports brings new income into our economy and creates value added sustainable jobs. This new income serves to improve the tax base in many forms allowing for more funds to be available for healthcare, the environment, education, and promotion of entrepreneurship, infrastructure investments - public works, defense, homeland security and social security. Lower unemployment indirectly reduces crime, abortions, drunkenness and many other social ills. The self esteem from productive secure employment reduces domestic violence and divorce rates. A focus on export competitive industries, allowing us to access the 97% of the World's consumers living outside of the U.S.A., is truly "The Grand Unifying Practice that Aligns All the Rest of Goals of our Nation!"
Nearly half of the nearly 4 percent GDP growths in the last quarter came from increased exports. Exports are growing now at an annualized rate of nearly 16 percent...fact, the export growth really offset the housing decline in the U.S. economy. It’s one of the reasons the market is staying up, it’s one of the reasons that we’re making some of the economic progress that we’re making, and that the unemployment rate – and I know the data is out later today – I think is not going to be bad. So it seems like the wise course of action is to continue doing things that work -- more exports through free trade agreements and a successful Doha round -- and stop doing the things the don't, that hurt our competitiveness. Like maintaining the second highest corporate tax rates in the World.
