  "Since the middle of 1979, when manufacturing employment hit its zenith with 19.6M workers, the USA economy has shed around 8M manufacturing jobs.   Meanwhile, USA [manufacturing executives have] abandoned industries with [lower] profit margins [not no profit, but lower profit], such as shoes, consumer electronics, and toys, leaving 'emerging economies' such as Red China and Indonesia to make many of those goods at a fraction of what they would cost here [at USA costs of living, taxes, regulations, etc.]" --- Alex Foege 2013 _The Tinkerers: The Amateurs, DYIers, and Inventors Who Make the USA Great_ pg17

  "As for RCA, once its radio and TV manufacturing operations were merged into GE's consumer-electronics business, the plan was to winnow the number of factories from 23 to 14, while cutting the ranks of salaried personnel by 44% and hourly employees by 18%.   That all changed in a hurry, though, when Welch suddenly decided to abandon consumer electronics -- 1 of 6 RCA businesses that GE sold or closed in just 18 months -- and swap it for a medical-imaging business that had better prospects not only in the USA but outside of it as well." --- Rick Wartzman 2017 _The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in the USA_ pg241

  "...industrial stalwarts along the Mahoning river in the 'Steel Valley' of eastern Ohio. Youngstown Sheet and Tube had announced in 1977 that it was shutting down its Campbell Works and laying off 4K employees. Many directed their anger at president Carter for not doing enough to keep out the foreign-made metal being imported from Asia and elsewhere... Within the next 3 years, some 10K people in the Youngstown area would lose their jobs due to mill closures, during the next decade, 50K jobs there would disappear. Cities like Youngstown were being hollowed out by de-industrialization, a dry euphemism for the moth-balling of some 1K factories across the USA in the 1970s. One study estimated that large manufacturers were cutting jobs at a rate of more than 900K per year. This ruination, which would gain steam through the 1980s..." --- Rick Wartzman 2017 _The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in the USA_ pp230-231 (citing Terry F. Buss & F. Stevens Redburn 1983 _ShutDown at Youngstown: Public Policy for Mass UnEmployment_; Louis Uchitelle 2006, 2007 _The Disposable American: LayOffs and Their Consequences_ (283 pages; 822KB; 331.1373))

  "Production, the economist Jean Baptiste Say observed, consists of 3 broad stages.     It starts with gaining knowledge of reality -- scientific knowledge concerning natural laws, the nature and potentialities of raw materials, methods of how to gather and use those materials.     'A lock could never have been constructed', Say noted, 'without a previous knowledge of the properties of iron, the method of extracting from the mine and refining the ore, as well as mollifying and fashioning the metal.'     The next step, wrote Say, involves applying that knowledge in order to serve a human purpose: 'for instance, the conclusion, or conviction, that a particular form, communicated to the metal, will furnish the means of closing a door to all the wards, except to the possessor of the key'.     Finally, labor is used to carry out the plan set forth in stages 1 and 2, 'as, for instance, the forging, filing, and putting together of the different component parts of the lock...     These 3 operations are seldom performed by 1 and the same person.     It commonly happens, that 1 man studies the laws and conduct of nature; that is to say, the philosopher, or man of science,     of whose knowledge another [the inventor, engineer, business-man] avails himself to create useful products, being either agriculturist, manufacturer, or trader;     while the third supplies the executive exertion, under the direction of the former 2; which third person is the operative workman or labourer.'     The scientist, [the inventor, the engineer] the businessman, and the worker [craftsman] each performs essential components of the process of production.     But whereas the scientist [and engineer] is praised for his rationality and the worker is applauded for his productivity, the business-man is [often] scorned as a mindless, unproductive leech [because he is associated with the nearly mindless, un-productive leech known as the B-school bozo, who believes his job requires little intelligence nor depth of knowledge nor investment of mental & physical effort; the B-school bozo is mentioned elsewhere in B&W, pp110-111, as being inclined to be a writer or reader of marketing & motivational works but having no product to market nor reasonably attainable goals]." --- Yaron Brook & Don Watkins 2012 _Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government_ pp89-90 (citing Jean Baptiste Say 1803, 1826, 2007 _Treatise on Political Economy_ pg80)

  "There are plenty of precedents for Grand Delusions throughout history.   Any doubters might want to consult Charles MacKay's _Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds_, first published in 1841.   Among the economic Grand Delusions MacKay lists the Dutch tulip mania of the early 17th century [early 1600s] and the South Sea Bubble of 1711-1720...   And cleverness, it seems to me, is almost a pre-requisite.   The best example of a recent Grand Delusion that I can think of is the one that led some very clever people in the global financial sector to think that they could [under political pressure from such as Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Bill Clinton, & Maxine Waters] relax the rules on financial risk, thereby discovering that all manner of new and exciting things become 'possible'.   Lending money has always been a gamblers' game.   But [government sponsored enterprises like Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac], banks and sub-prime mortgage lenders found that they could substantially grow their businesses by re-writing the rules on risk assessment and concealing the nature of this risk by salami-slicing [and re-packaging] the debt and selling it on to a multiplicity of other institutions through collateralized debt obligations [CDOs] and other 'complex' financial instruments.   At the heart of this new financial wizardry was Chinese mathematicisn David X. Li's Gaussian copula function.   Li was lauded [praised] as the 'world's most influential actuary'.   His function was used to model complex risk with a minimum of fuss [and information] and with [maximum ignorance and] apparent accuracy.   It was applied by the banks and the mortgage lenders to set prices for their collateralized debt obligations.   Suddenly, [it was claimed] it became possible to lend money to institutions and individuals who would previously have been deemed high-risk borrowers.   The value-set changed. Lending became more and more predatory [lenders competed to make deals with borrowers], and the result was a [necessarily temporary] property [price] boom." --- James E. Baggott 2013 _FareWell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth_ pp289-290
