People/consumers want the cheapest prices, company's the most profit > so the US (also Europe but not nearly as bad) company's went for the most
profit possible > government does everything for those company's can maintain the most profits even when they let them make their products like in
China. Difference between Europe and the US is most trade in the EU is between EU country's. The US made on power/dominance/believe after WW2 and the
blessings they got ever since and having the world trading currency. They have a big power controlling world matters in their own favor for a long
time which they are right now are mistreating for a long time. Their blessing is becoming a curse but everything will be done to keep this power, at
any cost so what's right or not is now lost. What's good has become bad but they still sell it as a good basically.
The US military industry is about the only big business left in the US (where products are still made in the US as well). But this comes at a spending
problem, a huge spending problem, about 7 or 800 billion/year spending on 'defense'. Let alone the chaos, destroyed country's, many many millions
death people let alone wounded and many more who left their country's since their own got destroyed..
''Defense/the military'' now has become a 'create tensions worldwide and start wars because it's good business! (create and sell weapons) = good!
Look at the income of the US government each year, about 4 trillion? (correct me but doesn't matter much), so they spend 1 trillion more then they
can, that is way way worse then any EU country.
In the EU they now get mad about Italy which is crossing the 2% /year more spending then have in income/year.
1 trillion more spending on top of an income of 4 trillion is way way worse then Italy.
And the states them self got huge debts as well, which are like EU country's in them self... Count those states up with the US government spending
problem it's way way worse you can imagine.
You don't believe, of course the US doesn't come up with those numbers but just look at the debt increase each year.
The debt nearly doubled under Obama: It was $10.6 trillion when he took office and was nearly $20 trillion when he left (not counting the states debts
Now it's going even faster and projected even worse in the coming years with Trump (not that a president IS the problem really).
So they are now coming with this tariffs/trade wars against China & Europe, which is just a tax on the people in the US (products get more expensive
for US consumers) means just more income for the government.
My point is the US is broke, broke and broke and that it gets more obvious with the actions they take, not only making the world unsafer (where war
means peace today because the US military industry = good business!) but also trying to make it weaker economically as well in the hopes the US can
still be on top compared with others (china, the EU, Russia etc). Don't follow US demands, be sanctioned!!
The US (those in power) will do anything for that... Just letting out my frustrations about this which many just don't see as reality, that's it
