Worker retraining? How about rebuilding our job base?

Lots of people who are laid off are surviving with worker retraining programs....but the thing is that a reason why unemployment is so high is that the industries that generated the money that fueled and usually fuels the rest of the economy were exported to Asia. China is undergoing an economic resurgence due to our jobs now being over there. The whole thing of offshoring was a house of cards just waiting to fall and fall it did, and now that it's collapsed there's no easy way out of it. This economic crisis is deepened by globalization, and was started because of neoliberal deregulation.
