 He who buys such things nevertheless, contributes to creating 
 unemployment in his own country or region. Makes me think of the story of 
 the German unemployed steel factory laborer, who complains he's still 
 unemployed but watches Panasonic TV, tapes on Samsung VCR, listens to 
 Kenwood stereo ("engineered in Japan, manufactured in Malaysia"), uses 
 Sony videocamera, drives a Daihatsu or Honda, wears a Philippine made 
 Esprit shirt and Reebok sport shoes (with nice British flags on them but 
 made in Hong Kong), and so on. Get the picture?

The picture is that it is an international market.  Non-competitive workers
will not have jobs.
