What questions do you have for Tyler Cowen?

What is your solution for the manufacturing decline?

Well established countries will probably continue to lose out to low wage countries in typical blue collar job areas. (Manufacturing etc.)

With the new economy where the average person depends on retail trade, what is your solution? Should we have higher taxes to give them money? Are you expecting that we will create new jobs for the average joe that pays more? Should we instead focus more on the other end of purchasing power? (e.g. zoning rules, artificially high prices etc.) Cheaper education?
