The savings in outsourced and off-shore labor goes to increased profits not consumer savings and they have become addicted and accustomed to increased profits as their due all the time now.

It is the old colonial dominance system under local governments but still controlled for them and the rich elite of the world. The ruling Billionaires and their think tanks think us into the wealth storage tanks.
