4 thoughts on ““Moving South” and NAFTA”
You touch on an underlying rift in economic perspectives — one that looks to labor versus the investors, who have been reaping the benefits of improved productivity and tax breaks. (We can invoke Bernie and the One Percent here.) Essentially, it depends on whose numbers you’re looking at — the economy as a whole, perhaps from a Wall Street point of view, in contrast to the Main Street and back roads you know so well.
As a native of Ohio, I’ve experienced the devastation you describe, and run with it in my novel “Hometown News.”
I keep hoping for a better ending.
I have read your novel “Hometown News,” on which I have commented elsewhere….I bought it, and read it, and loved it….I “knew those people” your characters…having worked on a paper just like HN back in 1970s-80s, for 19 years.

So here we are! What can we do to get things right? Ever feel like a voice in the wilderness?
yes! It is so frustrating to recognize a speeding train and not being able to convince people to get off the train tracks. my god to think of the awful scenarios developing and being told we are just “old folks” reliving the Cold War. Someone very close to me, a well-educated person, told me the other day that they did not realize what divisions were made after WWII, and why the Soviet Bloc formed? OK, so I’m a Historian. Do they not teach any History in school any more? I know that answer to that: some do, some don’t. Knowledge is relative and selective….bah humbug!
