During this time energy costs escalated at historic levels, much like the energy costs did in California in the Spring of 2001, due to the manipulation of Enron. The gasoline prices were manipulated in much the same way in its meteoric rise. Doesn't it appear strange that with the financial institution bailouts the price of gasoline fell drastically – over $100/barrel!! This added a minimum of $100/month to the average citizen's budget.
Healthcare expenses have risen to levels that are obscene and more and more American citizens are being forced to drop their insurance in order to be able to feed themselves. Where are our elected officials? They are passing legislation that makes it illegal for them to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies for lower prices! To make this even worse is AARP, that organization most think is an advocate of the elderly, lobbied to pass that legislation. That would enable them to raise the price of their insurance programs and they are actually nothing more than an insurance company that requires membership in order to purchase their insurance.
At the same time we were losing thousands of jobs a month, food costs were going up, energy costs were skyrocketing, prices on consumer products were going up (even though we keep being told that by having them produced in China, or some other place, they are kept under control. That may be true is the $billions paid to executives in bonuses weren't allowed), credit expenses were at obscene levels, people were tapped out. The “consumers of the world” were tapped, broke. What did these great thinkers, the power elite, the New World Order manipulators, imagine would happen when nobody had money in order to purchase the goods (in some cases not so good) produced by people all over the world. The consumers of those products were unemployed and broke.
It seems if they want to stimulate the world economy the consumer has to be brought back. In order to do that jobs have to be created. In order to best do that we need to begin producing again. Creating jobs to repair our infrastructure is great. However, not very foresighted. Recreating jobs that produce consumer products will go on and on. In addition to putting people back to work and earning a livable wage by producing products here we are also building more security as a nation. Presently, when most of our consumer products are manufactured outside of the US our nation's security is at risk. If we produce it here we are becoming less dependent on outsiders. Some might say this is isolating our nation from the rest of the world. I say it is building security. Presently, what nations appear to be doing well? The one nation that comes to mind is China. Many of our production jobs are there, they have been financing the US's debt for several years, and their main problem now is with our jobs there we don't have the money to buy their products.
Nothing short of bringing production jobs back to our country will save the world economy. Kissinger, The Chicago Boys, and all the other elitists and economists be damned. They're advocating the world develop into a globe of third world countries.
