In Your Opinion: Globalization doesn't benefit U.S.

--
The Daily Star

---- — No nation rivals America’s abundance. From food and minerals to fuel, America has been proud to be uniquely blessed with the high quality and vast quantity of its natural resources. Only recently have Americans been made to become aware of shortages and limited supplies that are resulting in continued inflation. This was never the case before the big push toward “globalization” and it should give pause to wonder whether there is a connection between the gravitation toward “globalism” and America’s recently experienced shortages. 

If so, America should proceed with caution! 

We have seen how sending manufacturing and money abroad has damaged America’s business and economy. 

And, it is hard to see how selling food distributors to the hungriest, most-populated places will supplement our food supplies.

If “globalization” is merely a means for the distribution of America’s resources, instead of a program based on cooperation between friends, than why are we pursuing this?
