Can you imagine an old wooden ladder with broken and missing rungs? That?s the image that popped in my head as I listened to Paul Craig Roberts on this episode of Chuck Harder?s show, For the People. Mr. Roberts is the former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during the Reagan Administration as well as a well known and award-winning columnist. He discusses with Chuck their joint belief that we- the United States- are fast becoming a third world country. Why? Because we are losing jobs through out-sourcing and so-called Free Trade that provide upward mobility (hence the image of the ladder). We are, according to these gentlemen, losing the middle class in America due to the globalization of labor. And we are no longer, says Roberts, a super power. We abdicated that role when because of hubris in our government leaders, horrid mistakes have been made. And if you?ve ever wondered why China and other nations would acquire our huge daily debts, Roberts has a thought on that too. Heavy duty stuff here and well worth a listen. Click here to do so.
