Goodbye, American Dream!

204
Goodbye, American Dream!The socio-economic situation in the United States began to deteriorate due to massive defaults at the grassroots, municipal level, which is carefully hidden from federal and international statistics.


Over the past two years, a strange migration trend has emerged: from 21 of my classmate, classmate, and acquaintance, who have long been safely settled for permanent residence in the US, more than half, 12 people, have unexpectedly returned to Russia. To the question "why," people say just awful storiesmore like a summary News from the poorest countries of Africa. “America is not the same at all!” Said Yura Istoyev, a programmer with whom I once hung out at the dormitory of a St. Petersburg university, and then in 2000 we heartily said goodbye to Pulkovo, seeing him off to the states. I looked at the US-RF migration statistics in recent years - indeed, the trend, as they say, is obvious: in 2012, 2 Russians returned to their homeland, which is almost three times more than in 102. Monitoring of macroeconomic indicators of the country of freedom is not He gave an answer to the question about the causes of this phenomenon: there is no recession, unemployment is stably high, but not critical, the industrial production index treads at zero. However, if you dig deeper, look at the problem from a regional perspective, it becomes clear where the dog is buried - as of August 2011, 1, 2013 cities had already declared bankrupt and stopped servicing their social obligations, 12 cities and 346 municipal districts were in pre-default state country. These stories are carefully hidden. And the world learned about Detroit only because there the socio-economic situation completely got out of control and could not be hidden.

San Francisco and stool

Nikolai Boev, an engineer returning from San Francisco, over a glass of delicious American Jimmy in a bar told me about the virtues of life in this once-thriving city: “There is a district called Hunters Point - an absolute nightmare. More than half of its population lives in poverty, and more than half of children live without fathers. I sometimes had to go there on business. My chief and I made our way through mud and concrete to the northeast of the building. Somehow we stopped to look around an unpopulated house, whose windows and doors were boarded up. The stream of shit, urine, tampons and toilet paper flowed from a dark hole in the sidewalk, flowed down a hill and near the street into a kind of crappy lagoon. Weeds grew in it twenty centimeters high. Fresh shit, understand? This is not a joke and not funny. I look at the WHO website for information on the "red dots" on the world map - San Francisco is marked with a thick line with a note: "high rates of viral infections among the population." The explanations of specialists are very clear: fecal masses are the shelter of dangerous bacteria, especially E. coli, a pathogenic microbe that causes illness or even death of people, especially infants. In the so-called developing world, according to the WHO, water polluted with feces is the main killer, on whose account 1,8 has millions of lives every year.

Child poverty, Detroit and darkness

Overall, however, San Francisco is in a better position than the rest of California. To the south along the coast, Los Angeles suffered the fate of a city with high unemployment and the ensuing rise in crime. In just the past three days, 54 arson and 8 rapes have been committed here (city police data).

The number of children living in extreme poverty in California from 2007 to 2010 increased by 30 per year. According to the National Center for Poor Children, in Philadelphia 36.4% children living in extreme poverty, 40.1% in Atlanta, 52.6% in Cleveland (!), And in Detroit 53.6%. According to the Brookings Research Institute, from 2000 to 2010 the year in the United States has increased the poverty rate from 15% to 40%.

About Detroit in general, monstrous numbers. Analysis of the census showed that 48.5% of all men living in the city at the age from 20 to 64 years are unemployed. The average cost of a house in Detroit right now is only $ 6000, and some of the houses are on display for a symbolic 1 dollar. Only 25 percent of school students finish high school. The city has become a very dangerous place to live. Recently, 100 bus drivers refused to go on the line, fearing for personal safety. The head of the drivers union, Henry Gafni, said that drivers “fear for their lives.” ... “Our drivers are scared, they fear for their lives. This security situation has been going on for a long time. I think that yesterday’s incident simply overwhelmed patience when one of our drivers on Rosa Parks was beaten by teenagers, and the police got there thirty minutes later, and this is in the center of Detroit, ”said Gefni. At the moment, Detroit is a city that thieves and vandals are tearing apart. Buildings are literally being taken apart by people who are looking for at least something that can be sold and stay afloat.

In Detroit, there is a serious war to ensure that street lighting works in the city. Thieves, outdated equipment and lack of funding prevent the authorities from solving this problem. City officials believe that 15-20 percent of 88.000 street lamps do not work, and recognize that in some areas this number can reach 50 percent. But street lighting has become a major disaster, not only in Detroit. In Highland Park, Michigan, most streetlights were removed because the city did not pay for electricity. In the city of Fresno, California, the theft of copper wires of street lighting has become a serious problem. Today, the repair of lighting lines and the loss of copper wire cost the city monthly 50 thousand dollars. Now about 2500 lighting poles stand without wires. An interesting comment about a trip to Detroit of the Belarusian Andrei Rogov, who now works in Canada as a truck driver: “A terrible abandoned city with a very high crime rate. There are many places where the police do not drive in at all. They are shot there from a corner. Once due to construction and the heavy snowfall turned into some side streets on the wagon. At each (!) intersection, negro drug dealers stand like guardsmen. "

This year, the United States again fell in the WHO ranking of growth rates of tuberculosis incidence (already 6 place in the world) and STDs (5 place). The rate of HIV infection in Washington is higher than in West Africa, said the director of the agency for the fight against HIV and AIDS of the District of Columbia:…. “We have a higher level than in West Africa,” says Shannon Heider, director of the agency who led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Zimbabwe. “We are on par with Uganda and some parts of Kenya.” Canada has come up with very "unusual" ways to prevent the spread of disease. For example, in Vancouver, British Columbia provinces are distributing free pipes with a heavy crack drug to drug addicts to reduce the spread of disease. But there is a limitation - a person is allowed no more than one free pipe with a crack per day.

Stockton

The city of Stockton declared bankruptcy on 28 last June due to a downturn in the housing market and accumulated debts. Over the past few years, the city has cut more than $ 90 of millions of expenses, especially for the police department, which has predictably led to an increase in murder and general crime. Ruslan Bezhemsky, who returned to his native St. Petersburg in June, said: “The city dump in Stockton is just a few blocks from the city hall. There are a lot of suspicious people around, mostly black. And I have not seen such a large number of homeless people even in Moscow crossings - they are almost there more than ordinary passers-by. Constantly begging for trifles, and if you give one, then a few more immediately run up. On the streets hang signs about leasing offices in whole buildings, but there are none. Half of the buildings in the city or on chains, or boarded up. The only thriving business in Stockton is selling liquor. Later in the evening, the streets of the city are filled with drunken black teenagers, at the sight of whom it immediately becomes uncomfortable. For a whole day in the city, I never saw a single policeman, even in the center. But almost with every gateway there is a smell of marijuana. "

Unknown heroes

Below is a partial list of the largest US bankrupt cities, which the general public is not aware of.

Mammoth Lakes, California

On July 3, Mammoth Lakes filed for bankruptcy due to his inability to pay $ 43 million, filed by the city planner against the city, on a claim for compensation.

San Bernardino, California

San Bernardino filed for bankruptcy, becoming the third largest bankrupt American city. Instead of major cuts for the police and fire departments, as the Stockton did, the city chose to file for bankruptcy. City lawyer James Penman says that the documents submitted to the mayor and the city council, 13 of 16 years were falsified, and thus concealed the true expenses of the city, only aggravating its financial problems.

Rockland County, New York

The district already cut 412 jobs in the middle of last year, after Moody's gave him a negative outlook because of its budget deficit of 18 million dollars. This year, the authorities fired another 514 staff. All American analysts are unanimous in the opinion that the city has come close to default, which will inevitably come during the 1-1,5 year.

Scranton, PA

Scranton in the budget currently lacks about $ 16,8 million. To help reduce costs, the city has reduced around 400 state jobs. "The city has no money," said city council member Robert McGoff. "We live every day like the last." Bankruptcy Forecast: I quarter 2014 of the year.


Providence, Rhode Island

At the end of May, a judge appointed to the bankruptcy of Central Falls (a city in Providence District) declared, “I don’t know how else they can get out of it, except by declaring bankruptcy.” Forecast of default: Autumn 2013 of the year.

Santa Ana, California

According to Moody's, the city’s credit rating is only one unit higher than insolvent status. Bankruptcy forecast: 2014 year.

Long Beach, California

Long Beach revised contracts with police and fire unions to cut pension spending in an attempt to reduce overall costs and save 18,5 million dollars for the city budget. Projected bankruptcy: 2014 year

Costa Mesa, California

To save money, the city of Costa Mesa sold police helicopters and cut wages. Bankruptcy is expected in December 2013.

San Diego, CA

Pension problems have plagued the city for many years, and most of the proposed solutions have a negative effect on the new workforce, doing little to reduce all the growing debts. Default in 2014.

Los Angeles, CA

The city budget deficit is $ 238 million, it also has huge unsecured pension liabilities and an annual budget of almost 7 billions of dollars. Expected default (if the federal center does not save it): February 2014 of the year.

The Governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder, announced in January that, according to his calculations, in his state 235 of large and small cities that are functional bankrupt. One of these cities in Michigan is the city of Flint. At one time, Flint was called “the engine city of America” because there was a Buick assembly plant, a large spark plug manufacturing plant, and a Fisher Body. None of these units is functioning anymore. "Engine City" has become a "city of murders." Last year, 102 recorded these crimes in a city with a population of 66. The kill rate is even worse here than in Baghdad.

According to analysts, cities such as Chicago and Santa Fe (New Mexico) have alarmingly high retirement obligations compared to their incomes. Moody's singles out Santa Fe (New Mexico) among American high-cost US cities, whose net retirement obligations are six times its operating income — the worst among all cities. This is followed by Virginia (Minnesota), where this excess is 5.9 times. Las Vegas (New Mexico) is in third place with 5.5 times exceeded, while Chicago is fourth with 5.4. Moody's Investor Services downgraded Chicago's credit rating by three points to A3, and Cincinnati down to Aa2 because of rising pension costs. Like Detroit, Chicago experienced a 7 percent decline in population from 2000 to 2010 a year, but it’s still flowers, compared to the catastrophic 25-percent decrease in Detroit’s population over the same period of time.

World Bank expert Eric Schweitzern in an interview with Expert Online explained: "In the USA, many social obligations were transferred from the federal to the state level in recent years, and the states themselves, in turn, willingly gave them to municipalities. Suffice to say that from 22 social programs initiated since 2008 under the Anti-Crisis Pact, only 3 remained with the federal center and 7 - with state budgets. Distressed assets in the public administration system are also transferred to districts and urban settlements. hide the huge deficit of the consolidated budget of the country, which, when considered in combination, already has defaults. To cover the deficits with traditional transfers from Washington is no longer possible due to the law on sequestration. Over the next 3 years we expect an avalanche-like process of bankruptcies of US cities, which able to put the whole country on the brink of sovereign default. "

In conclusion, we only note that the United States, despite the titanic efforts of the government to return industrial enterprises to the country, is still faced with the migration of industries to Asia. According to the OECD, over the past 20 years, more than 43 of thousands of companies, or 76% of the US industrial potential, have moved their plants from the states to XNUMX. And the social obligations of the state remain at an extremely high level. The current political elite will have to go to unpopular measures to reduce social standards. But Americans are so accustomed to a comfortable life with large benefits and pensions that they cannot even accept this idea. Disturbances of the disgruntled are already taking place with enviable regularity with any significant reduction in budgetary obligations to the population. Barack Obama has a difficult share - to teach US citizens to live within their means and finally deprive them of the great American dream.

    It is somehow sinful to rejoice over the troubles of other people, especially since this will mainly affect the "common people of America", but I would very much like this crisis to moderate the "appetites" of many politicians from the United States and they finally stop "worrying about the prosperity of democracy in all over the world ", but would deal with the internal affairs of the country ... I think the United States and the whole world as a whole would only be better off ...

      Everything is more complicated here, politicians in the USA as well as around the world do not decide what puppets they are, sovereign politicians can be counted on the fingers. And for those who can solve social issues, they’ll fuck up with a single state, even if it’s the United States. They are facing global issues, reducing the world's population through the advancement of LGBT people, GMOs, global military conflicts, and a depressed economy can only do that to them.
      And laughing is really bad, but you see the bending economy of the United States somehow joyfully becoming a soul.

          And they live within their means, they work out all the loans in the course of their lives, who is to blame for the fact that our banks cannot make normal rates. And about respect for other countries, is it their business to respect or not, or do you think the crisis will make them love Russia? The United States was not driven into debt by ordinary citizens, they just plow more than ours there, but the government and those behind it, in particular, the Fed and its owners.

            And you know, colleagues, this is probably a sin, but it ... makes me happy, this article ...

            From the bastion of the world démocracy and liberty, it increasingly begins to blow out the stench of decomposition, and these are the first signs of the logical beginning of the end of an obese, snickering and completely rusty country - a mutant with voluptuousness transforming his men into pid.aras.

              Even in the worst times of the fierce 90's under the patronage of P.indostan, in Russia there was no happening what is beginning to happen now in this outwardly well-fed, rosy and prosperous country - it's time to pay the bills for the robbery and innocent spilled blood.



              I repeat, but usually I am “tolerant of gnashing of teeth”, but now I will say frankly - I HATE P.indosia with the whole being of my Slavic and Orthodox soul and heart.

            And you don't have to tell me how they "plow" there ... Unfortunately, I have to work a lot with Exxon in the US (on business trips) and other large organizations.
            And I see (as the chief engineer of one of the research institutes of the Russian Federation) how ours and theirs work.

        Compared to us, they thrive.

        Once again: the consumer basket of the mattress consists of 300 tons of goods and services, the consumer basket in the Russian Federation has 156 names.

        The price of a consumer mattress basket is $ 700, a minimum wage of 1200.
        The price of a consumer basket for the able-bodied population in the Russian Federation is 7095 rubles, the minimum wage is 5205.

        Several dozen cities of the country are preparing to declare bankruptcy, which means writing off debts, the federal budget does not sponsor them.
        In the Russian Federation, out of 83 regions, 70 are subsidized, that is, de facto bankrupt (how many cities on their territory - consider it yourself).

        The example of the empty Detroit shows that the population has where and what to go, the population of the Russian Federation where to go, but nothing.

        Given the above, you risk asserting that we have better?

Out of 70, 50 regions remained, and they can serve themselves 80%! Consumer basket is taken into account taking into account the average income of the population. And the gap between the marginalized and the rich population of America is much larger. The number of unemployed is much larger. Given that we are only rising after the devastating crisis of the 90s, I would have thought 10 times before defending America so fiercely. Then change the Russian flag - a disgrace!

Only in our country communism has finally been cut out, and their capitalism has gone along a rotting path, and as a result, the country will rot. In short, the idea (Amer's dream) was good, in fact, only hypertrophied in

Here is a solution they came up with one day.
        And the money came. When financiers began to command instead of producers, money collapsed. That's just ... as it gradually became clear - the money is that people ... are not needed. All these inconvenient, nasty, nasty little people interfere with money, that is, their owners. All these workers, and employees ... we need only prostitutes of both sexes, convenient to use. Is there a better time and place for people to use for rape than general poverty? Well, they organized slowly poverty and complete hopelessness ...
        So what size "consumer basket" they have there at the moment is irrelevant. Soon, only bread will remain in it, and it will not be enough.

      And soon already. The other day, Americans have changed the methods of calculating GDP, because according to the old methods, their GDP is stable in the red. Industrial production, too. Again, according to recent data, about 50 million Americans receive food stamps.
      The only reason why they have not yet bent completely is because of the dollar. The dollar is still the main reserve currency. But printing paper no longer helps. The main buyer of US debt is the Fed, that is, they already borrow from themselves, and not from the rest of the world. China does not buy treasuries, Russia is the same. That is why, despite the printing press, the situation in their economy resembles the chronicles of a diving bomber. And the meeting with the earth is already visible with the naked eye.

In theory, America came to the throat of China, where the greedy Americans moved their production. America’s GDP is a myth, there is no production as such, except military. Some exchanges, banks, insurers, lawyers, printing presses, purchased ratings.

      like that from Ramstein

      In the text, in an ironic-satirical vein, the fact that the whole world “belongs” to the USA is ridiculed.
      The video clip sarcastically ridicules the globalization and penetration of American culture in all corners of the globe. So, a small tribe of Africans eats pizza, Buddhists choke on hamburgers and cola, a Bedouin takes off his sneakers in front of a prayer rug and prays in the direction of the gas-burning torch of an oil production unit, an Indian lights a Lucky Strike, and so on. At the same time, they all remember to watch one of the global channels on television, where Rammstein in the costumes of astronauts on the moon perform a song. All featured viewers with happy faces sing "We all live in America."
      By the end of the clip, the "astronauts" begin to rage, someone pulls out a pinball. And at the very end, the usual shooting everyday life - scenery, lighting, make-up artist - that is, the whole moon shooting from the beginning to the end is a fake. The video ends with the famous phrase "Houston, we have problems."

    Forecasts for the near death of the United States - a dime a dozen. Since the 50s of the 20th century, not only obscure current publishers, but also quite venerable scientists, were fond of this fantasy. And the collapse of capitalism was predicted almost from the 19th century. This trend and its effectiveness was even reflected in Soviet folklore (jokes). So what?
    Some of the municipalities in the United States are potential bankruptcy. And how many subjects of the Russian Federation are self-sufficient? Out of 83? And the municipalities? Do you have any idea what kind of "shishi" our villages live on, and most importantly - where do they get these "shishi" from?
    In 2008, the average house in the United States on the ocean cost as a three-room apartment in the district center (albeit large) in the Tambov region. And the budget of the Russian Federation - only two budgets in California (and California - only 13% of US GDP) And what?

        Everything is relative. The budget of Los Angeles and the budget of the Tambov region, as they say in Odessa, are two big differences. The budget of the Tambov region - revenues (including federal money) - 24,441 billion rubles. expenses - 26,374. The deficit is almost 2 billion. It is covered by loans and savings. The region is very subsidized. In the middle of the year another 1,5 billion rubles unexpectedly fell out. The financial department is practically hung up. Together with all state employees of the region.
        In other regions, with the exception of a small number of profitable ones, the situation is equally deplorable.

          And here it’s not necessary to speak. Besides domestic circulation, American dollars, as you hope, are also a reserve currency. As long as you could steam them all over the world, it made sense to print. And now many regions of the world are switching to mutual settlements in national currencies. That is, excluding the dollar. Well, where do you get the printed paper, if the turnover on international markets is sharply reduced? Have you forgotten our hyperinflation in the early 90's? It will be a disaster for America.

    Yes, for a long time everyone was throwing at municipalities and regions.
    But we have not died and will not die. The resilience of the Russian person, the ability to survive is our main advantage. Only we dig a garden, go to the forest for mushrooms, raise chickens, pigs, cows. No again I come to the conclusion, We are not defeated. Imagine a 90 situation in America. Covered with a copper basin. And we slipped along the edge but slipped through, although the losses were terrible. let the Americans get ready now, study our experience. Returnees are typical "flyers". They ran where it was better, and now it has not grown together back rushed to tell the horrors. And later, everyone in the swamp will be demanding changes.

      Yes, my will would not allow them to return to their homeland. These people have already made a conscious choice, no one forced them to do so. And all this chamomile - "I'll leave, I'll come", in the words of Lenin, said to Trotsky, smacks of political and civil prostitution. Of course, the country has a difficult situation with demography, but the return of Russians who did not voluntarily find themselves in the Soviet republics after the collapse of the Union is one thing, but these returnees are completely different, we do not need such citizens negative .

    This is absolutely true: all the so-called "nishtyaks" for the commoners, whom the Western liberal-democratic pedagogue was so proud of and who so attracted our and other "residents", were worked out not as achievements of capitalist society, but in spite of it, in order to resist the Soviet bloc, so as not to anger their commoners, who might otherwise arrange something in the Western countries in the form of revolutions. But with the collapse of the Soviet bloc, the need for flirting with the people disappeared and capitalism is gradually returning to square one, that is, it becomes what it really is - a system in which there are few rich and many poor, a system in which profit rules, a system in which any morality is replaced by money, the system that "communism" builds for the rich, and harlem for everyone else.

    Another thing that bothers me is why they are ready to help Egypt 1,5 billion, literally that week, but they are not "patching up" their holes. In general, it is unrealistic for them to "get out", they are accustomed to a high standard of living. They are unlikely to want to tighten their belts for anything. The structure of their production is only 15-20% of production. the rest (see figure) finance, trade, services, etc. This just explains why they buy cartridges for the guard and build conc. camps. And yet, why don't they "turn on the printing press" for themselves?

After all, they turned it on and off because there was already an edge, or you continue to print and use it as toilet paper, or if you stop, and they at least stay a little afloat.

Therefore, I am more concerned about the social status of our fellow citizens in Russia, young and old. And I don't think this situation is particularly joyful, and there is no reason for joy: food security is in the anus, agriculture is in the same place, communal services are in the same place. Medicine, education, employment (like a Muscovite in Moscow, I might not be smart) - all these industries leave much to be desired (perhaps I did not name all of them).

      no, you’re not mistaken, most likely it is precisely with China that the states will cling to, perhaps even business will come to nuclear weapons. The world conflict should not work, but they will have a real war, but not a long one. The forces will end quickly, the US will not have a strong desire to invade China, and bombing it quickly will end their technology. China, however, can only do something with their fleet and with the bases closest to it, and it’s impossible for America to reach it!

Have you traveled around Russia for a long time? Or do you draw conclusions from isolated examples? Where is this "dynamic" that I have to distinguish? What is it? All these dynamics are products on the market and in stores, which are 90% brought from overseas. Only grandmothers sell their own, and even then rarely. We passed the "market" relations and passed off the overbought goods as "our own, home", but they push with a surcharge. So where has the village gone?

          I was stunned. Neatly mowed fields. Hay is rolled up. And they were in the very outback of Mordovia. Animals - the sea. Wheat (or Che there - not an agronomist) turns yellow everywhere. The houses are painted. Nizhny Novgorod, Yaroslavl region made a completely favorable impression. At least outwardly. Here is the Kirov region. - yes ... Destruction and poverty in the villages.

      Soon, Chubais will also introduce a social rate of electricity consumption, and everything above the limit will be several times more expensive and we, the population, will pay for luminous advertising for domestic businesses and the like, despite the fact that the people of the USSR built power plants and power lines for a long time they paid for themselves, and electricity is only becoming more expensive.

      No, it’s not the oil industry, it’s our politicians who increased the excise tax and added a road tax to gasoline, although according to rumors the excise tax will increase and a liter of 92 (not 3-4 euro, but a simple one) will cost about 40-45 rubles ...

            Was a week ago in Tunisia. They have absolutely no oil. True, the gas is free - they are unfastened for their transfer to the ports, why they do not drive gas from it, I don’t understand, but now it’s not about that.
            So, in Tunisia, official gasoline certainly stands in Europe. And closer to the Sahara - there is an unofficial one. It is brought by truck at night from neighboring Libya. They refuel at official gas stations, bring and sell at ... with our money 10,5 rubles. Quite nothing gasoline yourself. No duties, it’s clear, but with a fat! We, of course, are colder, the prime cost of 30 is higher, but still gasoline is more expensive than 13 - 15 rubles (and we have refineries less than 100 km and production - 400km) - it’s finally! especially compared to the USA, where it is cheaper, but imported for half the world

      It’s in vain that you are so respected - the United States and Russia have too different pasts to simply put both countries on a par ... The United States has consistently pursued a policy of international financial intervention and open military aggression against other countries since the beginning of the 20th century ... Russia but (the USSR) in this sense, on the contrary, fought off external enemies ...
      Many of the current problems of the United States and the entire Western world are a legacy of the overstrain of forces during the Cold War and have been going on since Nixon times ... As well as a consequence of the domestic policy of Overconsumption ... The United States now consumes many times or maybe ten times more than other countries and this cannot continue indefinitely ... And if inside the country there is such a serious gap between rich and poor, then with a general crazy level of consumption, someone has already completely snickered and lost touch with reality !!!
      If everything is really as bad as it is written in the article, then
      The United States is a clear sign of the coming Depression ... And long periods of peace on the planet are clearly not good for them ...

    Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, the United States will not bend ... until the dollar is the world reserve currency and the printing press in their hands (if only there would be no shortage with paper!) ... But the idea is obvious! There are many reasons, but the main thing is that
    - AMers are successfully superseding cheap Chinese products from world markets. There is no sales, there is no income, but there is an overproduction of goods ... and the money was spent on it, the cat wept for working capital ... But in order to get stable profit according to the laws of the economy, it is necessary to invest 12-14% of the profit annually ... and she is in the cons ... Oh-oh-oh-oh, crisis, however! The crisis of overproduction!
    - the transfer of production to the "yellow countries" and high investment in these production ceased to give estimated income ... i.e. Since the temporary "free labor force", the need to make high social payments, free raw materials have passed ... All this has sharply increased the cost of production, which means you will lose in the competition ... it means a drop in sales and income ...
    - the low refinancing rate played a bad joke ... the lack of working capital led to a massive need to take loans ... and they were taken at once by many financial institutions and banks, in the hope that the crisis will go away and things will get better ... The economic crisis of 2008 , which was based on the crisis of the repayment of loans due to state investments and the inclusion of the printing press, was partially solved ... but the state cannot print money indefinitely (so as not to get superinflation) ... You can not live on indefinitely!
    - the habit of living in a big way --- there were super incomes ... there was also luxury - life! Revenues plummeted, but the habit of luxury living remained. And where is the money for this ... again - loans !! And it all starts again ...
    For the United States, the resolution of these problems is not visible in a positive way ... on the contrary ... with the loss of the status of the first economic power, all problems will only worsen ...
    Hence such a pessimistic conclusion ... but all this is not the case in the coming days ... and maybe even years ... but there are all the prerequisites for this!

    Some kind of direct apocalypse is described :) In fact, with all due respect to the author hi , "the truth is somewhere nearby" :) Basically, everything is already reflected in the comments above and in the article itself.
    1) I will not say about all the States, but I myself have been in some cities. And if in LA the described nightmare did not notice, tk. in "Harlem" did not meddle :), then for San Diego I will say. This is generally the richest city in the world - if you count the specific money of the people living in it: the city of millionaires. They don't care about all these bankruptcies. And the bankruptcy of the mayor's office - it will affect a small number of "municipal government employees" and others like them. Fleet, etc. - this is the federal budget, they also pay for the city ... no difference. In general, everyone lives there as they lived, many of them do not even suspect about any crisis in their city.
    2) Well, the explanation of the entire article is described in its last paragraph. It's all elementary and natural, but who wanted otherwise? Began car production in Kansas - for example, "Lincoln" bent. They began to import cars from Japan - the whole Daytroit was bent. Moved production to China (from the 80s, by the way) - half of the country is bent. These are all the very first laws of international business and globalization that I studied 25 years ago :). And what else was to be expected?
    But this is all nonsense. Damn it to America.
    What is important is the analogy.
    Do not you think that 100% is the same thing happening in Russia?
    They began to import products - bent agricultural. The people fled from villages to nearby cities. They began to import more finished goods, switching to mainly the development of energy resources - people ran from regional centers to Moscow to those offices that rule this process. It is good that our oligarchs still rule and the state somehow still rules them. But when they drag their capitals abroad ...
    In general, there are a total of 6 stages of m / drug business. The USA is at 6, we, as a country as a whole, think of everything at 2. Therefore, the flow of the people-to us. But alas, everything is still ahead :(

        Dear Vladimir hi , I am not natural migration processes associated with the intensification and mechanization of labor, when in the countryside (and in factories) there are simply extra workers, with the same level of production. Or, when "woe from wits" :) - it’s over there and Lomonosov ran away :), and my parents too, and society only benefited from this :)
        I’m talking about the initial decline in production due to lack of demand by the market (due to non-competitiveness in turn), and only as a result of this is the outflow of labor.
        These are different things.

    If the states are gigantic, then it will not seem enough for everyone. The nuclear power, when it collapses, it is not known who will fall into the hands of nuclear weapons. Well, what is happening there now is again confirmation of the "golden billion" plan. They (the financial elite) do not need their own superfluous people. Remember the Big Crisis: the people of measure are like flies, and the bourgeoisie destroyed the crops so that prices did not fall. Now, if the people of the United States had lifted their oligarchs on the rotten aspen, that would be great.

      US foreign policy is a continuation of the famous British policy of Pitt at one time ... According to this doctrine, Britain pushed together the strong countries of Europe in bloody wars thereby weakening all even potential competitors - and she acted either by intrigue, or by gold, or in the end of the conflict troops on the side of the winner ... A win-win...
      America developed the British strategy, but for the whole world - while the Russians and Germans were killing each other. The Americans were sitting on their continent and the British were on their island - when it became clear who the winner was, they actively intervened in the upcoming new section of the European Pie ...
      Now, having raised all this torment in the Middle East, the Anglo-Americans again wanted to apparently blow a strong fire and get warm from this - but something does not work out and this situation clearly works against them - so they are furious ...
      Therefore, I consider the main task of Russia so that the next major war would take place without its participation !!!
