It is time for an addendum to this thread. As I have gone on other threads dealing with the economy I have been villified for suggesting that foreign aid and subsidies for our competitors in this field and other fields are an intrusion into the Free Market. I have been accused of being a socialist for advocating fee enterprise xones where there are no corporate federal taxes and business that locate in these zones agree that evry product that can be supplied in America will be bought in America. These zones would have also far lower levels of government regulation.

I have been accused of not understanding economics when I called for an end to subsidies of foreign governments and nationals.

People form India have accused me not wanting Free Markets when I have called for an end to their currency controls that prevent capital from flowing out of India.

I have determined that if someone thinks they are getting some financial benefit from the status quo all their priciples get thrown out the window. Ifd someone thinks they can gain a temporary financial benefit from the status quo any threat to that benefit get shot at with every vile word in the book. Was I surprised? No. It is merely a demonstration of people trying to defend their own interest in not changing the status quo when they are making a profit but the world is constantly changing and we as a nation must adapt or be left behind being left behind has consequences too horrendous to imagine given the worlds penchant for totalitarians.

This humble essay was but a start to propose some measures that will help keep the USA economically independent over the coming years. We need a population that is predomninantly middle class and we need a high level of technical expertise in all the fields from medicine, and the engineering disciplines to finance. We need tax policies that encourage industry within the USA. We need regulatory policies that encourage industry within the USA. Those institutions or persons who do not wish to see a strong American economy that produces goods and services are not pro-American and should feel the wrath of Americans. /rant
