According to a recent Bloomberg, article “The productivity of U.S. workers unexpectedly increased in the fourth quarter at a faster rate.”
While news sources claim the U.S. is showing signs of improvement, due to the fact that we are producing again, the statistics aren't accurate. In actuality the United States is not producing much at all. We have become a nation of assemblers. The parts are manufactured abroad and shipped to the U.S. for final assembly. American workers snap parts together, like a child playing with legos, without the critical knowhow of how to actually manufacture the components. The profits then return overseas, leaving the U.S. a dead and dependent third world economy.
