Decades of imperial wars,
exporting America’s manufacturing base
and other high-paying jobs,
as well as financial deregulation and corporate/government collusion
“severely damaged the US economy and the economic prospects of 90%” of households.
They’ve never had it so bad with worse coming.
It’s clear from wealth distribution, unemployment, growing poverty, and millions in need losing their struggle to get by.
Homelessness, hunger, lost homes, closed strip malls,
empty office buildings and other facilities, “shopping mall vacancies,”
and “huge population losses in America’s” once prosperous manufacturing cities
show a nation in decline.
