The point of what I was saying is that there has been a dramatic shift from manufacturing to more of a service based economy in the United States.
Also, it's no secret that government assistance is on the rise. This assistance with food, housing, phones, etc basically affords people the option
of consuming more goods. It just so happens that the american "products" people are buying are more likely to be a service rather than a tangible
And if people do decide to purchase a real product, it is almost definitely not manufactured in America.
To me this is not a recipe for sustained and powerful growth like we used to have in this country.
