Brian O’Shaughnessy, CPA’s Co-Chair for Manufacturing, was interviewed by Scott Rasmussen (of “Rasmussen Reports”) on “What America Thinks” a new nationally syndicated show featuring interviews with various experts on the economy. Mr. O’Shaughnessy faced off against Mary Kissel of the Wall Street Journal editorial board.
The interview can be seen below. The host focused upon recent polling result showing voters want government to do more about manufacturing, and included trade policy. Ms. Kissel argued that cheap Chinese imports benefit America.
Mr. O’Shaughnessy countered with facts about his company’s experience, showing that China cannot be competitive in our markets without various types of trade cheating.
“If cheap labor is China’s advantage, why would they have to manipulate currency, use a valued added tax on imports, and subsidizes state-owned industry?” said O’Shaughnessy.
I hope you enjoy the show, “What America Thinks”.
