Well, I think Romney is entirely out of touch with the average American, but he has always been privileged. As to investing in other countries, this is what American corporations have been doing for years in a global economy. Anyone here own an Apple product? They're not made in the US. GE has invested heavily in China; so has every other huge corporation.
The problem is, making money for shareholders isn't necessarily compatible with bringing good jobs to a country -- and money is the bottom line. To me, this is a huge problem; there will always be people in the world who can work cheaper; the jobs will follow them if profit is all that's important. We're still operating on the idea that companies care about their workers. I know I have been, and it's just not true.
