American Economy: R.I.P.
By Paul Craig Roberts
09/10/07 "ICH' -- -- The US economy continues its slow death before our eyes, but economists, policymakers, and most of the public are blind to the tottering fabled land of opportunity.
In August jobs in goods-producing industries declined by 64,000. The US economy lost 4,000 jobs overall. The private sector created a mere 24,000 jobs, all of which could be attributed to the 24,100 new jobs for waitresses and bartenders, and the government sector lost 28,000 jobs.
In the 21st century the US economy has ceased to create jobs in export industries and in industries that compete with imports. US job growth has been confined to domestic services, principally to food services and drinking places (waitresses and bartenders), private education and health services (ambulatory health care and hospital orderlies), and construction (which now has tanked). The lack of job growth in higher productivity, higher paid occupations associated with the American middle and upper middle classes will eventually kill the US consumer market.
The unemployment rate held steady, but that is because 340,000 Americans unable to find jobs dropped out of the labor force in August. The US measures unemployment only among the active work force, which includes those seeking jobs. Those who are discouraged and have given up are not counted as unemployed.
With goods producing industries in long term decline as more and more production of US firms is moved offshore, the engineering professions are in decline. Managerial jobs are primarily confined to retail trade and financial services.
Franchises and chains have curtailed opportunities for independent family businesses, and the US government’s open borders policy denies unskilled jobs to the displaced members of the middle class.
When US companies offshore their production for US markets, the consequences for the US economy are highly detrimental. One consequence is that foreign labor is substituted for US labor, resulting in a shriveling of career opportunities and income growth in the US. Another is that US Gross Domestic Product is turned into imports. By turning US brand names into imports, offshoring has a double whammy on the US trade deficit. Simultaneously, imports rise by the amount of offshored production, and the supply of exportable manufactured goods declines by the same amount.
The US now has a trade deficit with every part of the world. In 2006 (the latest annual data), the US had a trade deficit totaling $838,271,000,000.
The US trade deficit with Europe was $142,538,000,000. With Canada the deficit was $75,085,000,000. With Latin America it was $112,579,000,000 (of which $67,303,000,000 was with Mexico). The deficit with Asia and Pacific was $409,765,000,000 (of which $233,087,000,000 was with China and $90,966,000,000 was with Japan). With the Middle East the deficit was $36,112,000,000, and with Africa the US trade deficit was $62,192,000,000.
Public worry for three decades about the US oil deficit has created a false impression among Americans that a self-sufficient America is impaired only by dependence on Middle East oil. The fact of the matter is that the total US deficit with OPEC, an organization that includes as many countries outside the Middle East as within it, is $106,260,000,000, or about one-eighth of the annual US trade deficit.
Moreover, the US gets most of its oil from outside the Middle East, and the US trade deficit reflects this fact. The US deficit with Nigeria, Mexico, and Venezuela is 3.3 times larger than the US trade deficit with the Middle East despite the fact that the US sells more to Venezuela and 18 times more to Mexico than it does to Saudi Arabia.
What is striking about US dependency on imports is that it is practically across the board. Americans are dependent on imports of foreign foods, feeds, and beverages in the amount of $8,975,000,000.
Americans are dependent on imports of foreign Industrial supplies and materials in the amount of $326,459,000,000--more than three times US dependency on OPEC.
Americans can no longer provide their own transportation. They are dependent on imports of automotive vehicles, parts, and engines in the amount of $149,499,000,000, or 1.5 times greater than the US dependency on OPEC.
In addition to the automobile dependency, Americans are 3.4 times more dependent on imports of manufactured consumer durable and nondurable goods than they are on OPEC. Americans no longer can produce their own clothes, shoes, or household appliances and have a trade deficit in consumer manufactured goods in the amount of $336,118,000,000.
The US “superpower” even has a deficit in capital goods, including machinery, electric generating machinery, machine tools, computers, and telecommunications equipment.
What does it mean that the US has a $800 billion trade deficit?
It means that Americans are consuming $800 billion more than they are producing.
How do Americans pay for it?
They pay for it by giving up ownership of existing assets--stocks, bonds, companies, real estate, commodities. America used to be a creditor nation. Now America is a debtor nation. Foreigners own $2.5 trillion more of American assets than Americans own of foreign assets. When foreigners acquire ownership of US assets, they also acquire ownership of the future income streams that the assets produce. More income shifts away from Americans.
How long can Americans consume more than they can produce?
American over-consumption can continue for as long as Americans can find ways to go deeper in personal debt in order to finance their consumption and for as long as the US dollar can remain the world reserve currency.
The 21st century has brought Americans (with the exception of CEOs, hedge fund managers and investment bankers) no growth in real median household income. Americans have increased their consumption by dropping their saving rate to the depression level of 1933 when there was massive unemployment and by spending their home equity and running up credit card bills. The ability of a population, severely impacted by the loss of good jobs to foreigners as a result of offshoring and H-1B work visas and by the bursting of the housing bubble, to continue to accumulate more personal debt is limited to say the least.
Foreigners accept US dollars in exchange for their real goods and services, because dollars can be used to settle every country’s international accounts. By running a trade deficit, the US insures the financing of its government budget deficit as the surplus dollars in foreign hands are invested in US Treasuries and other dollar-denominated assets.
The ability of the US dollar to retain its reserve currency status is eroding due to the continuous increases in US budget and trade deficits. Today the world is literally flooded with dollars. In attempts to reduce the rate at which they are accumulating dollars, foreign governments and investors are diversifying into other traded currencies. As a result, the dollar prices of the Euro, UK pound, Canadian dollar, Thai baht, and other currencies have been bid up. In the 21st century, the US dollar has declined about 33 percent against other currencies. The US dollar remains the reserve currency primarily due to habit and the lack of a clear alternative.

The jobs data and the absence of growth in real income for most of the population are inconsistent with reports of US GDP and productivity growth. Economists take for granted that the work force is paid in keeping with its productivity. A rise in productivity thus translates into a rise in real incomes of workers. Yet, we have had years of reported strong productivity growth but stagnant or declining household incomes. And somehow the GDP is rising, but not the incomes of the work force.
Something is wrong here. Either the data indicating productivity and GDP growth are wrong or Karl Marx was right that capitalism works to concentrate income in the hands of the few capitalists. A case can be made for both explanations.
Recently an economist, Susan Houseman, discovered that the reliability of some US economics statistics has been impaired by offshoring. Houseman found that cost reductions achieved by US firms shifting production offshore are being miscounted as GDP growth in the US and that productivity gains achieved by US firms when they move design, research, and development offshore are showing up as increases in US productivity. Obviously, production and productivity that occur abroad are not part of the US domestic economy.
Houseman’s discovery rated a Business Week cover story last June 18, but her important discovery seems already to have gone down the memory hole. The economics profession has over-committed itself to the “benefits” of offshoring, globalism, and the non-existent “New Economy.” Houseman’s discovery is too much of a threat to economists’ human capital, corporate research grants, and free market ideology.
The media has likewise let the story go, because in the 1990s the Clinton administration and Congress overturned US policy in favor of a diverse and independent media and permitted a few mega-corporations to concentrate in their hands the ownership of the US media, which reports in keeping with corporate and government interests.
The case for Marx is that offshoring has boosted corporate earnings by lowering labor costs, thereby concentrating income growth in the hands of the owners and managers of capital. According to Forbes magazine, the top 20 earners among private equity and hedge fund managers are earning average yearly compensation of $657,500,000, with four actually earning more than $1 billion annually. The otherwise excessive $36,400,000 average annual pay of the 20 top earners among CEOs of publicly-held companies looks paltry by comparison. The careers and financial prospects of many Americans were destroyed to achieve these lofty earnings for the few.
Hubris prevents realization that Americans are losing their economic future along with their civil liberties and are on the verge of enserfment.

AND WHO OWNS THE PRIVATIZED FEDERAL RESERVE BANK IN COLLUSION WITH THE "BANKSTERS" ABOVE???
Sir Peter Bonnell CJSJ
Bringing you the TRUTH since 1982
“Search for the truth is the noblest occupation of man;
its publication is a duty.”

"Give me control of a nation's currency and I care not
who makes the laws. "
- Baron Rothschild
Never before in our history has this been more true. The President on down completely ignore the people and listen only to their masters; the international money men who want a One world government with them in charge. These are the international Zionists who started, spread and controlled all communism. Now they have just given it a different name, it is still mass slavery, look around you at the ever increasing police state. Get the picture?
What do you think you really know about the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. Government (Bureaucracy)
HERE IS THE FULL STORY:
On the night of December 23, 1913, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act. The Result? The greatest theft in the history of the world, the loss of America's gold and silver reserves, and a federal debt of over five trillion dollars!
Although Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution, makes Congress responsible for coining money, it is the Fed that has total monetary control. However, the Fed is not a Federal agency and has no reserves,
it is a privately-owned banking system.
A Mr. Lewis was injured by a Federal Reserve vehicle and sued the U.S. government for damages. The court ruled, "..that since the Federal Reserve System and its twelve branch banks are private corporations, the federal government could not be held responsible."- Lewis v. U.S., 608F 2d 1239 (1982).
U.S. paper currency reads: Federal Reserve Note." But, "Money in usual and ordinary acceptation... does not embrace notes." - Black's Law Dictionary, 6th Ed.
All money in circulation is borrowed; every dollar in your possession
is a debt to the Fed. If all debts were repaid,
there would be no money in circulation!
When Congress needs money, the Fed sells Treasury Bonds (pieces of paper) for the amount required at an interest rate set by the Fed.
Treasury then sends the printed currency to the Fed which pays a few pennies (about four cents) for each printed bill. This money is then loaned back to us through the banks which loan it as debt money.
All money is borrowed, but only principal can be borrowed, the interest cannot be borrowed. Thus, a problem occurs when, for example, the Fed loans $100 million to a bank at 10%. The bank must repay $110 million;
but since only $100 million was issued, the un-issued $10 million must become debt. The Fed can never be repaid!
Furthermore, if a business borrows $500,000 at 10%, the money is spent into circulation, and the economy improves. But when the debt plus interest ($550,000), is repaid, more money is removed from circulation than was put in, and the economy suffers .
Just as destructive is Fractional Reserve Banking. In the pamphlet I Bet You Thought by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, it states, "Banks create money by monetizing debt." For example, if the Fractional Reserve is 10%, a bank that has on deposit $1 million (10% of $10 million) can loan an additional $9 million, money the banks don't actually have - they've created money!
To protect depositors, banks are insured for $100,000 per account by the FDIC, a government agency, funded by taxpayers. When there are major failures, such as the Savings and Loan debacle or foreign loan repayment defaults, Congress uses taxpayer money to bail out the banks. The banking interests never lose!
The Fed controls the economy with interest rates. Rates go up, less borrowing, less money in circulation, the economy slows. Rates go down, more borrowing, more money in circulation, and the economy heats up. But if U.S. or foreign investors lose faith in the economy the Fed will be unable to exert control.
The Fed collects interest, in gold, on every dollar issued. (They do not accept Federal Reserve Notes). And, by law, they pay no federal taxes.
In 1992 each stockholder received dividends of $15.5 billion. Who are the stockholders? Not the American public! In Secrets of the Federal Reserve, author Eustace Mullins writes they are: the Rothschilds (London & Berlin), Lazard Bros. (Paris), Israel Seiff (Italy), Kuhn-Loeb Co.(Germany), Warburg Co. (Hamburg & Amsterdam), Lehman Bros. (NY), Goldman Sachs (NY), Rockefeller family (NY), and the J.P. Morgan interests (NY). Although the Fed Chairman is required to report to Congress, he is not directed by it.
ENTER THE INCOME TAX
Until 1913, tariffs on trade furnished most of the money needed to fund the federal government. Then Congress passed the Underwood trade bill, which canceled most tariffs. Suddenly, Congress claimed it had to find another tax source. Senator Aldrich co-sponsored the 16th Amendment creating the Income Tax. Soon after passage by Congress in 1913, Philander Knox issued the odd announcement that, "The 16th Amendment seems to have been ratified."
Doubting ratification of the 16th Amendment by three-fourths of the states, Bill Benson and M. J. "Red" Beckman traveled to 48 states (Alaska and Hawaii were not states in 1913). They got certified copies of all ratification documents from each of the legislatures, (17,000 documents) and, in a two-volume work, proved that not one state had legally ratified the 16th Amendment as written. See: www.thelawthatneverwas.com
That isn't all. "The Internal Revenue Service was never authorized by Congress." - Public Notice - Media Bypass, March, 1997
An unconstitutional act is enforced by an unauthorized agency.
Withholding taxes, an emergency measure initiated only for World War II, are still collected.
Income taxes pay only Federal Reserve debt and IRS expenses.
"Income taxes do not fund any government function." - Page 12, President's Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, January 15, 1984 - Library of Congress.
PREVIOUS FEDERAL BANKING HISTORY
Alexander Hamilton lobbied for the first privately-owned federal bank. However, Thomas Jefferson opposed it writing, "If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied." In 1789, ignoring Jefferson's warning, Congress chartered the bank for 20 years.
In 1792, Congress specified that only gold and silver were lawful money. Owners sent these precious metals to the U.S. Mint to be made into coins. This money was spent into the economy and remained in circulation. Every dollar improved the economy, and, in an exchange of goods for money, the seller received gold or silver coins. The U.S. had a privately-owned national bank and lawful money at the same time.
In 1811, Thomas Jefferson, then president, refused to renew the bank's charter. In a letter to James Madison he had written, "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies."
MISTAKE NUMBER TWO
In 1816 Congress chartered a second federal bank for 20 years. When the charter was nearing renewal in 1836, National Bank President Biddle, threatened President Jackson, that if the charter was not renewed he would destroy the U.S. economy. But Jackson was not one to be intimidated., he overrode Congress, and closed the bank commenting, "The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government... are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."
So, for 76 years there was no federal bank, gold was $20 an ounce, and Congress adhered to Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution; it regulated money.
1913- THEY NEVER LEARN
In "From Farm Boy to Financier," Frank Vanderlip wrote, "Since it would be fatal to Senator Aldrich's plan to have it known that he was calling on anybody from Wall Street to help him in preparing his report and bill, precautions were taken... Asked to go were Henry Davison, Paul Warburg, Ben Strong and myself. From Washington came A. Piatt Andrew Jr.... We were told to leave our names behind us... We were instructed
to come one at a time and as unobtrusively as possible to the railroad terminal.... where Senator Aldrich's private car would be in readiness... Discovery, we knew, simply must not happen... If it were to be exposed publicly that our particular group had written a banking bill, that bill would have no chance whatever of passage by Congress... although the Aldrich Federal Reserve plan was defeated its essential points were contained in the plan that was finally adopted..."
The Fed was chartered to end economic fluctuations. However, Congressman Lindbergh, the aviator's father, disagreed stating, "The new (Federal Reserve) bill will create inflation whenever the trusts want a period of inflation... they figure they can unload the stocks on the people at high prices during the excitement and then bring on a panic and buy them back at low prices... The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed..." - Congressional Record, Dec. 22, 1913.
1929 - THE CRASH
Lindbergh had been right, only 16 years passed before the U.S. entered the worst financial recession in its history, the Great Depression.
Even though many economists state the depression was caused by the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, which increased duties on imports, the Smoot-Hawley bill was not signed into law until April of 1930, eight
months after the crash.
But not all believed tariffs were at fault. "When business in the United States underwent a mild contraction in 1927, the Federal Reserve created more paper currency in the hope of forestalling any possible bank reserve shortage... More disastrous, however, was the Federal Reserve's attempt to assist Great Britain... The excess credit spilled over into the stock market- triggering a fantastic speculative boom... As a result the American economy collapsed." - Gold and Economic Freedom by Alan Greenspan, Chairman, Federal Reserve.
Still others believed that the crash was planned. "It was not an accident, it was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might
emerge as rulers of us all." - Louis B. McFadden, Chairman, House Banking Committee, 75th Congress. (Prior to investigating the Fed, McFadden died of a suspicious "heart failure" after food poisoning). The
Fed has never been audited, or investigated!
TIDBITS NOTE: In the book FINAL JUDGEMENT by Michael Collins Piper, he tells about the secret war between Pres. John F. Kennedy with Israel. Kennedy wanted to take all the nuclear weapons out of Israel (all of which secrets were stolen from us to begin with and given to communist China by them and is the real cause of the Mid-East problem-but no one in the controlled media ever mentions taking the Nukes out of Israel or even their being loaded with hundreds of them (the controlled media- is controlled by the people we are talking about here). Kennedys plan was also wanting to do away with the Fed and print our own money backed by gold and silver, which would make our dollar the most powerful and sort after currency in the world. And this would have ended the Jewish control of their domination of the rest of the world money supply also.
The book proves everyone and I mean everyone, from the wealthy Canadian Jewish Bronfman family, Clay Shaw and his friends, Jack Ruby and the man that controlled the shooters on the knoll and all connected with the assassination of Kennedy where Jewish controlled CIA operatives and Israeli Mossad working together. If enough Tidbits readers want this book and contact me from our website www.tidbitsnews.com I will offer this book for sale.
Concerned about the 1987 stock market plunge, the Fed now has an illegal "Plunge Protection Team" - (AP 10/17/97) to buy stocks if a massive sell-off threatens the stock market.
THE GREAT DEPRESSION
America had suffered panics and recessions before but had always quickly recovered. Now there was no sign of recovery. Few Americans realized that the Fed's debt money was destroying the economy. Except for gold and silver coins, all of the money in circulation was borrowed. Consequently, when companies and brokerage houses went bankrupt, banks, dependent on repayment of the loans, began to fail. Depositors withdrew their savings, banks recalled loans, no one was borrowing, and paper currency began to disappear.
Then, in 1933 President Roosevelt confiscated gold coins. The government bought the coins at $20 an ounce, and then, just six months later, revalued gold to $32 an ounce. The government had just conned its own citizens during those desperate times.
Except for silver coins, this left only paper currency in circulation, trapping the economy in a vicious circle. Worried, people bought only necessities, causing companies to lay off more workers and cut borrowing. This reduced the amount of currency in circulation, creating more thrift. In 1927 the M1 money supply (currency plus demand deposits) had been $26.10 billion, but by 1933, instead of increasing, it had decreased by almost 25% to $19.91 billion. (Historical Statistics of U.S. Colonial Times to 1970 - U.S. Dept. of Commerce) - Debt money had come home to roost!
The government started programs to pump money into the economy, building dams, roads, parks, etc. But this didn't compare to the money generated by a flourishing industrial nation It was only the massive
> spending of the Second World War that ended the Great Depression.
PUTTING IN THE FINAL COFFIN NAILS
Since then, our currency has steadily deteriorated. In 1965, President Johnson removed silver from coins. And, in 1978, Congress took us off the gold standard, but the definition of lawful money has not changed: "Lawful Money... to mean gold and silver coin of the United States." - U.S. Code, Title 12, Section 152..
We now have fiat money (currency not backed by anything of true value), which can be devalued at any time. Gold, $20 an ounce in 1933, is now several hundred dollars an ounce (Tidbits: today gold is $654.30). It has been the devaluation of the dollar, not inflation, which has reduced its buying power. But Congressmen are content, knowing that with fiat money they don't have to raise taxes, the Fed will provide the money and just put us deeper in debt.

"I came to America because of the great, great freedom
which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake
in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake
I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime."
- Albert Einstein, 1947
"We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the
most completely controlled and dominated Governments
in the world - no longer a Government of free opinion,
no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the
majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress
of small groups of dominant men." - Woodrow Wilson
[U.S. President during World War I]
"The U.S. must carry out some act somewhere in the
world which shows its determination to continue to be
a world power." - Henry Kissinger, post-Vietnam blues,
as quoted in The Washington Post, April 1975
"I believe that banking institutions are more
dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private banks to
control the issue of their currency, first by inflation,
then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will
grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of
all property until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power
should be taken from the banks and restored to the people,
to whom it properly belongs."
-- Thomas Jefferson
