Americans are being played, just like workers in the rest of the world. We think we’re “special”, but we’re not. We are just a commodity to be used by the puppet masters. Sorry to sound so cynical, but even if it’s not “intentional” the results are the same.
Add to the equation the fact that those in charge in this country have no concept of how to run a child’s lemonade stand, let alone our economy and you have a recipe for disaster. For the most part, Wall Street has bought and paid for our political process - to their benefit.

You’re absolutely right, and it was intentional. Our standard of living will decline, to level out when it reaches Asia’s rising standard of living; we will never again have what we had in the past; home ownership (even if it becomes an option for young people) doesn’t mean anything when the birthrate drops and the Third World comes here to replace the lost generations of Americans due to the economic squeeze on our former middle class. It is incredible how quickly (at least here in NJ) illegal aliens and legal immigrants have displaced Americans, and the difference in fertility rates between them; these changes have long-term consequences most people can’t imagine.
Two words... I agree.
