The Global Economy has reduced prices and accelerated trade and development throughout the world; however, it has also caused massive relocations of jobs and wealth that threaten U.S. stability. Without reforms, the U.S. will continue its spiral into economic mediocrity and bankruptcy.
The U.S. current account deficit — the difference in income from goods, services and investment income earned by the U.S. and by its trading partners — grew from $125 billion in 1996 to $809 billion in 2006. In other words, a staggering $809 billion (more than the financial bailout) in wealth left the U.S. in a single year. Cumulatively, the U.S. incurred trade deficits of more than $2.25 trillion from 2002 through 2008 and a trade deficit of $400 billion is projected for 2009, in the heart of the recession.
Pressure from cheaper, imported products has caused U.S. companies in many sectors of the economy to close their doors or relocate their manufacturing abroad. Among the affected sectors are clothing, small appliances, power tools, consumer electronics, hardware and major home appliances. This has created an “incomplete” U.S. economy. Now, if Americans are to meet basic needs, they have no choice and must buy imported products, continuing the loss of billons of dollars from the U.S. economy.
