In general it is the not-so-well-to-do that most benefit from foreign
products because they are generally cheaper.  What a delemna!  Morally,
we may not agree with slave labor, etc. from some foreign country, but
by restricting trade, taxing, etc. we generally only punish the private
U.S. citizens that want to buy those cheap products.
