You mean the people who will buy Sony Playstations, Honda Civics, clothes made in China, and computers built from parts made in Taiwan?
And when the fraction of what they spend somehow does manage to end up in the hands of an American producer, why will that producer turn around and reinvest it in America and create jobs then if he won't do it now?
Your plan seems flawed to me.
