Trump had appealed for Apple to move its manufacturing from China to U.s, to create more jobs. From our perspective, by no means will Trump save the sad American workers in Rust Belt.
川普在選前屢次點名 Apple，呼籲 Apple 將 iPhone 搬回美國製造，希望創造更多就業機會。不過就我們看來，就算川普用盡一切手段，祭出反傾銷之類的手段整死中國印度製造，還是救不了Rust Belt裡沒工作、沒尊嚴的「可悲老美」。
Yet many of the economists in the survey agree with Mr. Smith that the biggest reason so many fewer people work in today’s factories are advances in automation. Improvements in assembly-line technologies and the deployment of industrial robots allow U.S. manufacturers to produce more goods than ever before, but with much smaller work forces. Even if all outsourcing were ended immediately, the march of technology would put steady downward pressure on manufacturing employment.
