Whirled Peas for all

Hmmm … the Onion reports that

Following the logic set forth in this memo: http://www.whirledbank.org/ourwords/summers.html

Esp the part about how things "should be done in the country with the lowest cost, which will be the country with the lowest wages."
Followed by: " I think the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that."

I guess we would similarly face up to this fact:

"I think the economic logic behind transferring the work of childbearing and childrearing to the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that."

Whether we face up to it or not, it seems already to be happening.
