I Remember When U.S. Textile Workers... At least I think it was U.S. textile workers, as more-and-more of their livelihood got shipped overseas, U.S. textile operations closed-down and the workers were dismissed, saying "Wait. It'll be your industry, some day."
Looks like they were right.
Some of it doesn't even make sense. If the U.S. wireless market is profitable for Softbank, why wouldn't it be profitable for some U.S. investor? Then there was the tainted pet food scandal a few years ago. Why is the biggest producer of wheat in the world importing wheat gluten?
