What does the US actually produce these days ?
They outsourced most everything to China and India, and the few industries they do have *cough*car*cough* are in the process of going titsup.
The US has gutted all their manufactuing and service industries, which seems to be at the heart of their debt problem. They don't produce anything, just just buy it in with increasingly crappier US dollars. Its sad that I see the UK and Australia (yes I am an Aussie) following them down the same road to the bankrupt cul de sac. I am happily up here in Canada, and staying here.
I saw your UK budget, and I really do feel for you, I expect our will be just as hairbrained, but at least we will have a faster fibre system than you.
All the Yanks produce these days is debt, and ways to loose wars slowly..
Mine's the one with "Made in China" on the label..
