Ask an expert: When will jobs be back?
MSN Money's Anthony Mirhaydari answers Facebook users' questions about the employment market.
As he answers questions from MSN Money's Facebook community, Mirhaydari also explains how tax policy affects jobs.
When there is a person with any moral fiber, comes to political office,
also when there is a CEO that realizes that in order for America to survive
there has to have a manufacturing base!!! Return jobs to America!!
We need a global Economy, but I don't think that means send our good paying jobs oversea!!!
So we need politicians that will come up with responsible trade policies!!!
Jobs will be back when the cost of energy,transportation,and wage increases in the third world (China) adversely affect the corporate bottom line.Obviously economics is about business cycles and that will never change.Peak Oil is definitely the canary in the coal mine for us all.
Unfortunately,the ongoing,permanent destruction of all fiat currencies-especially the USDollar-will render these same once quality jobs obsolete.The actual nominal wage structure will be insignificant vis a vis the purchasing power of the dollar.And as long as Central Banks simply print money and never address the systemic issues clearly evident in all markets and nations,i.e UNSUSTAINABLE DEBT,economic indicators will continue to flash red and the world will lurch from one catastrophe event to the next.

I agree with you, automation makes our economy more efficient. I can also agree automation creates more wealth for some; however, I must disagree on the creation of wealth for everybody.
First off, thanks unions. You did a great job.
Second: how come we don't count the people that have gone off unemployment in the statistics?
Aren't they without a job also?
Third: When we get rid of the liberal way of thinking, then we might get rid of all this crap with taxes and the rich might loosen the purse strings. There is too much cash available in the corporate world that is not being used.
Fourth: I only ask one question----Has anyone ever gotten a job from a poor person?
