Doug, I cannot get to my regular account until Monday. I am looking at a few of the archives. You might post this to the list.

Nathan asked: Are there are measures out there that calculate how many US labor-hours versus foreign labor-hours go into US consumption?

Feenstra, Robert C. 1998. "Integration of Trade and Disintegration of Production in the Global Economy." Journal of Economic Perspectives, 12: 4 (Fall): pp. 31-50. 33: He calculates the ratio of trade to domestic value-added of "merchandise" (tangible goods). This ratio fell from 14.3 in 1889 to 9.6 percent in 1960 (reflecting the major de-globalization of the interwar years and only partial recovery after that) but then soared to 35.8 percent in 1990.
