America’s Economic Problems
From a Reuter’s opinion piece by Edward Hadas.
Barack Obama will not solve America’s most profound economic problems. That is not a partisan political statement about the newly re-elected president. Had Mitt Romney won last week’s contest, he also would not have been able to reduce unemployment, improve the trade balance, rebuild U.S. manufacturing excellence and strengthen the middle class.
Below is our response:
Yes, the United States and most nations of the Western world have huge problems. They are not going to be solved; they may be resolved by natural forces. This will mean massive unemployment, shrinking economies, huge debt defaults, etc. There is even the possibility of riots, looting and worse.
Stupid, incompetent, corrupt politicians; too many entrenched special interest groups(this does NOT mean business); the focus on ideologies; the people looking to the wrong sources for solutions.
These problems are very solvable; but not the way anybody wants.
