I'm responding to "Buying from China" (July 7). The fact is that this country is now driven by greed. Everybody wants more money, from the president of the company on down to the janitor.
The investors want their capital gains. Shareholders want more millions every year. Then there are your wonderful corporate level geniuses always striving to produce and sell more cars year after year (to keep their jobs and get their bonuses), creating a glut that overwhelms public demand.
What a vicious cycle we find ourselves in. This whole thing is going to drive this country to the ground. It is immoral to give American jobs away to overseas cheap labor.
We all must stop this greed in order to save our own skins. The cycle of greed must be broken by explaining to everyone in a way the workers can understand so they will stop striking for higher pay. If I were a factory worker, I would rather take a pay cut in one form or another than lose my job.
To save our economy and our workers, the federal government must stop the big companies from going overseas. They also need to regulate the Unions' take in the workers' wages. Painful adjustments must be made at all levels in order to save American jobs.
The incentives war wouldn't be necessary if the vehicle makers would stop flooding the market. That would also reduce buyer confusion and make it easier for them to decide what really is the best deal.
