America is shrinking. We’re officially in a recession — for the last year without officially knowing it until yesterday — and the influence of the USA abroad is waning and is in danger of completely failing. Is there really a bits worth of difference between “recession” and “depression” in the eye of the mind?
Here’s the bad news from Reuters:
U.S. economic and political clout will decline over the next two decades and the world will be more dangerous, with food and water scarce and advanced weapons plentiful, U.S. spy agencies projected on Thursday.
The National Intelligence Council analysis “Global Trends 2025” also said the current financial crisis on Wall Street is just the first phase of a global economic reordering.
The U.S. dollar’s role as the world’s major currency would weaken to become a “first among equals,” the report said.
How can the USA get out of this economic and spiritual depression?
Is it too late to come out of the depths?
Or are we already sunk?
