He issued an instruction for that passenger to leave - the passenger disobeyed that order, so was at fault.

Ah, the being "arrested for resisting arrest" gambit. Surely, you have to see how this is circular logic.

Yes, I am conservatively some 50x more productive than my junior peers. A big part of that comes from knowing what to ask the customer up front, knowing what won't work, and knowing when to just build the damned birdhouse the customer requested rather than a 400 unit Gehry-inspired avian housing complex "just in case" the customer wants to upgrade in the future.

I'm not challenging you, but could a lot of that 50x be a result of accumulated domain knowledge or product specific knowledge?

Would you be 50x more productive than junior peers if you moved to new company in a different industry?

If Telsa or anyone else is naive enough to go through with this type of deal, what is Trump supposed to do about it?

Trump's plans are (1) to end the asymmetrical trade deals that the last 4 four presidents have given us and (2) push to eliminate the existing tax code provisions that make it more economical to move manufacturing offshore and then import back in to the US. The US is pretty much alone in having such an inverted tax structure.

Protectionism works just fine - the 90 million chinese workers employed in industry as a testament to that.

Free trade only raises the standard of living of all parties if everyone is playing by the same rules - asymmetrical trade relationships don't work.
