"US firms up for sale to foreign investors"

It seems many Americans are moving towards protectionism as economic growth occurs in foreign countries like India, China and the member states of the European Union. That's really not the solution to lay-offs like those that in the below video. We can build a wall around our country, put our fingers in our ears and pretend that there isn't an increasingly competitive world but it will only make things worse.

We need to reform our schools in order to teach Americans the skills to be competitive with Indians, Chinese or Europeans. It's either that or watch those countries leap ahead of us.
