Hollings in The American Prospect he recounted how Akio Morita, founder of Sony Corporation, once told Third World leaders that their countries would only be successful if they developed manufacturing capability. Morita went on to say that if a world power ever lost its manufacturing capacity, it would cease to be a world power. Free trade and globalization have hurt many Americans because those two concepts have caused the basic strength of the United States, our once mighty industrial base, to whither to almost a mere shadow of what it used to be. IÂ’ve read that in the past 10 years, 8,600 American companies, representing $1.3 trillion to the U.S. economy, have been lost to foreign control. How about the North American Free Trade Agreement? We were all told it would create thousands of jobs in the United States and it would limit illegal immigration because more jobs would also be created in Mexico. Some economists estimate that at least 400,000 American jobs were lost because of NAFTA and we all know how that illegal immigration thing has turned out. American wages have stagnated and the number of jobs available in Mexico has actually decreased. Because of free trade and globalization, an estimated 2.8 million American manufacturing jobs have been lost in the past ve years. Even during the darkest time in our history, the Great Depression, our factories were intact and a skilled work force was available and waiting to be used. When things turned around, we were in a position to take advantage of the economic upswing because we had that manufacturing capacity. And it was that capacity, even more than manpower, that was responsible for winning World War II. AmericaÂ’s factories supplied the Soviets and British with thousands of tanks, artillery pieces, planes, trucks, millions of rounds of ammunition and small arms. U.S. factories built ships, bombers and landing craft by the thousands. AmericaÂ’s industry did all that while supplying our own vast military needs. ItÂ’s fair to say that without the American industrial might, winning World War II might have been impossible. Contrast that to now. We should have the ability to completely supply our military from our own factories, but a lot of our equipment is built or assembled in foreign countries.

She said that if the care g iver entered a dangerous area, they might be injured and they would not be able to give aid. Young people attending the class said they were taking the course for several reasons. Dan Valles, 12, said he was doing it to get money. He added that he is the youngest child in is family, but has a young niece who is seven and that he used to play with her. Danielle Gilmore, also 12, said that she liked children and liked to baby sit. Loren Thomas, 13, the oldest of ve children, said that she took the course so she could baby sit someone other than her brothers and sisters and because babysitting is fun. Brouwer said that babysitters have to learn that it is “Ok to say no.” She explained that the young people should not baby sit in conditions where they are uncomfortable, such as if there are too many children or the children are younger than they feel prepared to care for. She also advised the young people to talk to their friends who are working as babysitters to determine what a fare wage would be. She said that there is no set rate for babysitting on Kwajalein. According to Brouwer the most important quality of a good babysitter is that they love children.

Wednesday, June 14, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass N4Look right — stay left! Kwajalein residents share a weather leg. My job was to hang on and not look alarmed when we heeled 60 degrees or tacked suddenly. The only nod-to-tourism was the lifeline installed to keep everybody on board. It was a gas! The other Auckland area experience we had was a lovely drive to the west coast. We stopped at a charming rain forest preserve visitor’s center at Waitakere, lunched at the Elevation Caf and walked the breathtaking Kerikeri Beach, where the movie “The Piano” was lmed. I navigated us good and lost on the way home, but we made it eventually, whizzing around round-abouts two and three times. We loved exploring Auckland on foot. It felt great to be in a city that was just right in its size and scope. Lots of trees and parks, close proximity to the waterfront, good theater and restaurants would make this a city Billy and I could live in. On Feb. 19th we hit the road to Russell, an old whaling town. Auckland is on the north island, and Russell is in the Bay of Islands, on the northeast tip of the north island. After taking a detour to Titikaka to book adventure number two, a dive day on Poor Knight’s Islands, we had lunch and proceeded on to Russell. Taking a tiny car ferry we were dropped outside of town in time to buy a few provisions and settle into our cliff hanger cottage called Te Maika before sunset. The cottage faced west with the sunset re ecting in the gorgeous bay. The hill was so steep that when you were on the balcony it seemed you were cantilevered over the water, without footings. We dined on green-lipped mussels and crme brulee for dinner and explored the tiny town of Russell the next day. There are Victorian cottages, stonewalls and climbing roses all in bloom covering arbors to seaside gardens. We were enchanted by Russell and just as taken with its small but beautifully done museum. Two days later we were on the dive boat in Titakaka for our day of diving. Let me preface this experience by saying that while Billy grew up diving in California with a wet suit in cold water, I have always dove Florida, Palau, Bali or in the Marshall Islands. In New Zealand you are but a current away from Antarctica and the water is very cold. Poor Knight’s Islands are considered great diving because they have a mitigat-By Lauren Traweek Part oneNew Zealand lies almost due south of Kwajalein and is on the same date and time except for one hour, which makes jet lag a non-issue unless you travel the route we took. Billy was able to secure business class tickets for our round trip through Continental on Qantas Airlines in exchange for miles. However, Qantas only ies from Honolulu to Sydney, and then Auckland. So we left Kwaj Feb. 14, ew six hours, arrived Honolulu Feb 13. Next day was a 4:30 a.m. wakeup call, arrived Sydney after a 10 hour ight on Feb. 15. Another 4:30 a.m. wake up call, arrived Auckland after a three hour ight. We got to our hotel around 2 p.m. in our rental car. Ah, the rental car. This is where Billy and I developed the mantra “Look right – stay left!” As the navigator, Billy wanted me to verbally keep him in the right, er left lane, and always look right before proceeding. The round-abouts and bridges are something else. Most of the bridges are one lane only, and there are many bridges over spectacular ravines and gorges. Each direction has a right of way sign that will let you know who proceeds rst. The one with the best view usually goes second. Then there are the breakdown lanes – or actually, there are no breakdown lanes or guardrails, just more incredible precipices and views like we’ve never seen. Of course there are the standard small wooden crosses where there have been cars which have taken ight. After unpacking we decided to walk down the hill toward town and the harbor where we booked our rst adventure for the next day and had the rst of many excellent meals. The food in New Zealand is fresh and innovative, and except for two meals was always delightful. Our booking was an afternoon on the New Zealand America’s Cup boat NZ 40. It’s an unglamorous name for a breathtaking 24-meter yacht built for the 1995 San Diego America’s Cup Challenge. Although not nished in time to race, it was used in the 2000 America’s Cup in Auckland as a trial boat. The blustery afternoon was spent in a match race beyond the harbor against NZ 41, the other cup boat. Offered a position as grinder, Billy declined and steered

Often the road narrowed to one lane, and near the summit Billy casually asked me what a certain symbol meant to the far right on his dash. After looking it up in the owner’s manual, and discovering it meant brake malfunction, we pulled into the scenic overlook at the highest elevation on the drive. Lucky for us it was just that the emergency brake had been on for a little bit, triggering the warning light. Not only gorgeous, Coromandel has a quaint town with a number of antique shops and great food. We feasted on lobster and mussels and crept home before dark. The next day we drove to Rotorua for a day trip and adventure number three – Zorbing. First we stopped at Hell’s Gate, a geothermal springs park that is acre upon acre of the most smelly, dead, burnt terrain we have ever seen. This place is so aptly named if you saw a lizard man with horns and a pitchfork you would not be surprised. One hour’s stroll through and we were ready to Zorb. Zorbing is a crazy New Zealand experience that consists of a 3.2-meter rubber ball with a smaller ball inside where you ride. You can strap into a xed position in a harness for a dry ride, or slop around loose for a wet ride in a foot of water. I tried to purchase a dry xed ride, but ALL the employees urged us to the wash-cycle. They assured us the harness was a horrible experience – and they knew! Billy and I shared the rst ride, which consisted of a push off down a fairly substantial hill. We laughed the whole way, and opted to do the second runs alone down a zigzag course. Oh my gosh – I screamed the entire time, but it was funny and de nitely worth it. We got up early on Feb. 26th and ew to Wellington, the southern most city on the north island. We had a fantastic few days exploring the new Te Papa Museum, the waterfront and all the great little places to eat. At one point we found ourselves sitting at a Middle Eastern sidewalk caf listening to the Irish music from the pub next door, watching all the international students go by. We felt very far from Kwajalein! From Wellington we caught the Interislander Ferry and made the three-hour crossing to Picton on the north tip of the southern island. From there we picked up our new rental car and set off for wine country and the second half of our trip. To be continued, for the rest of the trip see Saturday’s Hourglass. ing current which ‘warms’ the water during several months to 21 degrees Celsius. Had I known that translated to 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit I might have thought again. I have grown to think 82 degree water is chilly! Because it is so cold, the wet suits are 7mm and very buoyant. Because they are so buoyant, it takes a lot of lead to get my butt 100’ below the surface. Let’s just say my rst dive was less than controlled. The second dive was much better from a control aspect, and therefore I was able to see more and enjoy it more. Actually I’m kind of surprised I got back in. Billy, of course, had a splendid time on both dives. The next day we drove west on Route 12 through the most amazing mountains to pop out at Hokianga Harbor with its enormous sand dunes and down to Waipoua Forest to nd the ‘Kane Mahuta,’ the largest and oldest remaining Kauri Tree. After tramping around the forest a bit, we drove back to Kawakawa to the Kawiti Glow-worm caves. I was highly skeptical, but Billy really wanted to see this place. It turned out to be a treasure. It is on 300 pristine acres of Maori family land. The tour guide was charming and the caves truly impressive. Glow-worms are minute worms that glow like the lightening bugs of my childhood. They attach themselves to the roofs of caves and glow to attract food to their tiny webs. When you turn off your ashlight and stand in the cool, dark cave, the ceiling looks like you are looking at the clear night sky on a sailboat in the ocean. On Feb. 23rd we packed the car and headed south to Thames, at the base of the Coromandel Peninsula just south of Auckland. On the way we stopped at a small farm, gift shop and caf. We did the whole tourist thing – watched the herding and shearing show, petted the baby animals, bought a merino sweater and had lunch. After cuddling fuzzy lambs you just had to avoid the lamb chops! Seriously, the herding was marvelous. The sheep dogs are a cross breed of Australian Shepherds and Greyhounds. Skinny, but astute and agile, the dogs are amazing. In Thames we had another magni cent view from our chalet-styled bed and breakfast and run by a wonderful couple. The next day we set off to explore Coromandel Peninsula and town. The circular route we took around the peninsula was another heart-stop-


Wednesday, June 14, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 FREE TRADE from Page 2 Post on Feb. 13, 2005, states the case of the presidential helicopter which had been built by an American company, Sikorsky, ever since the Eisenhower administration. Today, many of the critical parts such as the main transmission and rotor blades are subcontracted out to an international company of British and Italian manufacturers. Why do we want the most powerful man in the world, the leader of our country, to ride in a helicopter built in part by a foreign company? Even more disturbing, according to Senator Dodd, is that during the outset of the Iraq War, a foreign subcontractor refused to supply our military with critcal parts for bombs because that manufacturer opposed the war. Fortunately, in this case, the parts were obtained from a domestic company. But why are we outsourcing our security in the rst place? Is it really just all about the money? Some people say the answer to outsourcing and U.S. jobs going overseas is educating American workers for the ‘jobs of the future.’ Really? China and India graduate 350,000 engineers a year and it seems American companies are outsourcing engineering jobs as fast as they can. HI-B visas allow foreign high tech workers, who will work for much less than Americans, to come into the United States and they are taking many of the available high tech jobs. Radiologists in India read X-rays and test results for labs and doctors in America. Call centers for high tech corporations, airlines, credit card companies and a host of others operate in India. Even secretarial work and administrative assistant work has been outsourced. Because of the time difference, an executive ready to go home for the day in New York City can give instructions to a secretary in India who is just coming to work and the project will be ready for him when he comes in the next morning. While he is sleeping, that secretary in India is working. So what exactly does the American worker get educated to do that won’t be outsourced to someone doing it for less money? Who will hire them? It probably won’t be a particular giant software company that is hiring full time scientists in China and has been opening plants and computer campuses in India and other countries. Once upon a time, before the ugly head of globalization reared up, American business actually cared about protecting American labor because they depended on that workforce. But now, they can draw much cheaper labor from the entire world. So why bother protecting Americans? To be fair though, one can’t really blame U.S. companies for wanting to go overseas. In his article, Hollings stated that if someone wanted to start a business in the United States, he would have to provide a minimum wage, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, clean air, clean water, a safe work place, safe machinery, parental leave and labor rights. He would also have to comply with equal pay, age-discrimination, disability and antitrust laws. In other words, for Americans to keep our standard of living, businesses pay the price. So if this person’s competitors go offshore to India or China where factory space and a work force is available for an average of a few dollars an hour, how can he compete? Then there’s the markets that are closed to us in Japan, South Korea and China. But we are wide open to them. There is no such thing as a level playing eld. Americans are always trying to climb the hill. I wonder if anything made in America (not pirated) is for sale in China? Some worry about military espionage and security, but what about American companies that sell patent rights and technology information to foreign competitors? It seems like our country is holding a going out of business sale sometimes. Two and a half trillion dollars has been added to the national debt in the last ve years for a total of $9 trillion. Some economists estimate that might be $70 trillion in the next ten years. We have gone from being the biggest creditor nation after World War II to being the world’s biggest debtor nation. Foreigners have nanced our debt by buying our bonds, treasury notes and of course, many of our businesses. And that’s scary. Our economy, which we are told is ‘robust’ is built on a house of cards. It is debt compounded by more and more debt. I read in business magazines that the average American family has $5,800 just in credit card debt and less than $2,000 in savings. If the American middle class fades into the sunset, I wonder to whom all those American companies, who ran off to foreign shores for the $3 a day workers, are going to sell their products to? The American middle class is under attack every day like never before. Pensions, health insurance and bene ts are eroding, wages are not keeping up and labor unions have lost their power to do anything about it. Free trade and globalization were supposed to lead to job creation for Americans and better the standard of living for people in poorer countries.It’s accomplishing just the opposite. For the corporations, the rich and the CEOs of the world, it’s been the greatest thing since canned beer. It’s not so good for the rest of us. Congress has discussed placing high tariffs on Chinese goods unless China quits messing around with the value of their currency, which drives down the value of the U.S. dollar and opens their markets to us. I’m all for that. The American government must do whatever it takes to ensure fair and balanced trade and keep American workers from having to ght with one arm behind their backs. For our part, American citizens have to hold the government and American corporations responsible for their actions. It’s our duty to make sure we know what’s really going on and then express our approval or disapproval in both the voting booth and where we spend our money. It’s the only voice we have, so we better use it.
