Just because foreign sources can manufacturer something cheaper does not mean it is a healthy choice. In January of 2009 the USA exported 4 billion dollars worth of goods to China. We imported 24 billion.
By using very cheap labor a country can rapidly expand their domestic economy. The country receiving the goods will quickly become accustom to the low prices. Their own domestic companies will either relocate to take advantage of this or succumb to the pressure.
Open markets should benefit both nations involved in the trade. In a perfect world the foreign country would be able to afford more of the higher cost items produced by the USA and other western nations. Unfortunately it does not seem to be working that way
In the long term, 1 or 2 decades, as more and more industries relocate the effect will be a lower standard of living in the importing country and the removal of completion for the exporting nation.

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded and the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics...you are all stardust.”― Lawrence M. Krauss
A 1792 U.S. penny, designed in part by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, reads “Liberty Parent of Science & Industry.”
