"Someday, eventually, that slack would have been picked up by Toyota or whoever, but in the meantime it would have had the same kinds of effects as the crash if 1929, which took down major swaths of the American economy, and which did not fully recover for 15 years, and then only with the largest Keynesian stimulus in the history of mankind: World War II. And there is no assurance that the suppliers which went under would be replaced by American suppliers; more likely much of that value chain would have been replaced offshore, further contributing to the decline of the American manufacturing sector." - Goofyhoofy

You know, I'm going to admit something here that few people on any internet board are willing to admit. I don't know enough about the subject to comment on it one way or the other. And that's the truth. The only time I even think about this kind of stuff is when I'm reading posts on these message boards.

When I read a lot of these kind of posts it all sounds good to me. It has so little to do with my day to day life that I can't relate to it. I need to take my wife's car in to get it serviced and I need to get a couple of keys made. I'm also planning on making some homemade spaghetti sauce around lunch time. That is what mostly occupies my mind, what errands I have to run that day and what I'm fixing to cook.
