I read through this article and in the end it was not a Doomsday forecast. It did offer some views that were worrisome. Views that I believe should cause us some concern…views that cast the USA as moving more toward isolating itself economically from the world economy.
And less than a week prior to this posting, the media reported the USA is considering tariffs on steel and aluminum.
It is a world economy. And the world probably will not care if the USA opts to isolate itself. Some of the largest world economies are forging trade pacts with each other to build their economies. Their governments have the foresight to see the benefit.
It is this blogger opinion that Washington needs to get out of its own way, abandon its severe case of tunnel vision, and enthusiastically charge into building trade pacts and agreements with countries across the globe.
This blogger considers our country’s leadership a great example of leadership failure.
Apologies for taking the blog into the political realm…
