America in a Global Economy

What is John McCain's Vision For Ensuring America's Economic Preeminence In The Global Economy?

According to John McCain, he will promote a strong and growing economy an economy that creates jobs, increases wages, and helps American workers compete with rivals in any market in the world. He will pursue an economic agenda that places the need for low taxes, fiscal discipline, and economic opportunity for Americans above the special interests.

Ensure American Workers Continue to Benefit from Exports to Other Countries.

American workers make and sell about $200 billion in heavy machinery to other countries every year. They export more than $70 billion in aircraft and parts, more than $148 billion in electrical machinery and equipment, and $106 billion in cars, trucks, and other vehicles. In all, one in every five American jobs depends on factory exports. Exports are essential to American workers and employers across the nation:

Export is Essential for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) Growth

  • Illinois: Illinois is the fifth largest exporting state. Its merchandise exports have almost doubled since 2002, hitting $48.7 billion last year. Top products include Machinery ($12.7 billion); Transportation Equipment ($7.5 billion); Chemicals ($6.2 billion); Computers & Electronics ($5.8 billion); and Appliances ($2.6 billion). Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) generated nearly one-quarter (23 percent) of Illinois' total exports of merchandise in 2005. A total of 13,891 companies exported goods from Illinois locations in 2005. Of those, 12,359 (89 percent) were SMEs, with fewer than 500 employees

  • California: California is the second largest exporting state. Its merchandise exports have almost increased 45 percent since 2002, hitting $134.2 billion last year. Top products include Computers & Electronics ($43.7 billion); Machinery ($14.5 billion); Transportation Equipment ($13.7 billion); Chemicals ($10.4 billion); and Agriculture ($6.7 billion). Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) generated more than two-fifths (43 percent) of California's total exports of merchandise in 2005. A total of 51,466 companies exported goods from California locations in 2005. Of those, 49,148 (95 percent) were SMEs, with fewer than 500 employees.

  • Florida: Florida is the sixth largest exporting state. Its merchandise exports have almost doubled since 2002, hitting $44.8 billion last year. Top products include Computers & Electronic Products ($12.2 billion); Transportation Equipment ($7.2 billion); Machinery ($5.1 billion); Chemicals ($4.7 billion); and Appliances ($1.7 billion). Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) generated nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of Florida's total exports of merchandise in 2005 the highest of all 50 states. A total of 28,524 companies exported goods from Florida locations in 2005. Of those, 27,048 (95 percent) were SMEs, with fewer than 500 employees.

Honoring Trade Agreements with Key Allies:

  • Pursuing Free Trade Agreements with America's World Trading Partners.
    As president, he will pursue multilateral, regional and bilateral efforts to reduce trade barriers, level the global playing field and build effective enforcement of global trading rules.

  • Pushing to Ratify the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.
    American exporters now pay an extra $3.5 million in tariffs each day because we don't have a completed trade agreement with Colombia. Colombia is a friend and crucial democratic ally. The stability of Colombia is more critical than ever as others in the region seek to turn Latin America away from democracy and away from America. Trade serves all of these national interests, and the interests of the American economy as well.

  • Supporting a Free Trade Agreement With South Korea.
    America exports nearly $50 billion in goods to South Korea, a key ally that deployed the third-largest contingent of troops to Iraq, and assisted in the rebuilding of Afghanistan.

Helping American Workers in the Global Economy:

Reforming Worker Assistance Programs.
There are vast benefits of a global marketplace, but they come at a cost for many, and we have an obligation to help American workers receive the training they need when plants close and jobs are lost. We have to help displaced workers at every turn on a tough road, so that they are not just spectators on the opportunities of others. The government must expand and improve federal aid to American workers in need.

Pursuing A Responsible Agricultural Policy:

  • Seek an End to all Agricultural Tariffs, and to all Farm Subsidies that are not based on Clear Need.
    John McCain will veto any bill containing special-interest favors and corporate welfare in any form. As President, John McCain will base America's farm policy on the common good, with policies that help America's small farmers to succeed, and America's rural communities to survive and flourish once again.

  • Open Foreign Markets across the World to American Farmers.
    The biggest obstacle to this goal, however, is not to be found in any foreign market, or in the policies of any other government. It is in the United States Congress and in the billions of dollars in subsidies served up every five years to corporate farmers.

  • Opposing the $300 Billion Farm Bill.
    John McCain opposes providing billions to subsidize large commercial farms with an average income of $200,000, and an average net worth of $2 million while American workers and taxpayers struggle to buy food, because of rising prices.
