When Glenn Beall said “the gigantic American wheel of commerce begins to turn,” [“Glenn Beall advocates in-house parts design,” May 19, Page 4] he is absolutely right. That wheel supports our economy and assures that the money makes the circle that supports all segments of the economy. Only today, large flat spots are developing on the wheel.
Every time work is sent out of this country, a flat spot forms and gets bigger each time the wheel goes around. When work is sent offshore, the job and the money that supports that job leave. In the process of trying to turn the American wheel of commerce into the global wheel of commerce, there are many potholes that need to be filled in to smooth out the journey.
