Guest Post: Show This To Anyone That Believes That "Things Are Getting Better" In America

Submitted by Michael of The Economic Collapse blog,

How can anyone not see that the U.S. economy is collapsing all around us?  It just astounds me when people try to tell me that "everything is just fine" and that "things are getting better" in America.  Are there people out there that are really that blind?  If you want to see the economic collapse, just open up your eyes and look around you.  By almost every economic and financial measure, the U.S. economy has been steadily declining for many years.  But most Americans are so tied into "the matrix" that they can only understand the cheerful propaganda that is endlessly being spoon-fed to them by the mainstream media.

As I have said so many times, the economic collapse is not a single event.  The economic collapse has been happening, it is is happening right now, and it will continue to happen.  Yes, there will be times when our decline will be punctuated by moments of great crisis, but that will be the exception rather than the rule.  A lot of people that write about "the economic collapse" hype it up as if it will be some huge "event" that will happen very rapidly and then once it is all over we will rebuild.  Unfortunately, that is not how the real world works.

We are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world, and once it completely bursts there will be no going back to how things were before.  Right now, we are living in a "credit card economy".  As long as we can keep borrowing more money, most people think that things are just fine.  But anyone that has lived on credit cards knows that eventually there comes a point when the game is over, and we are rapidly approaching that point as a nation.

Have you ever been there?  Have you ever desperately hoped that you could just get one more credit card or one more loan so that you could keep things going?

At first, living on credit can be a lot of fun.  You can live a much higher standard of living than you otherwise would be able to.

But inevitably a day of reckoning comes.

If the federal government and the American people were forced at this moment to live within their means, the U.S. economy would immediately plunge into a depression.

That is a 100% rock solid guarantee.

But our politicians and the mainstream media continue to perpetuate the fiction that we can live in this credit card economic fantasy land indefinitely.

And most Americans could not care less about the future.  As long as "things are good" today, they don't really think much about what the future will hold.

As a result of our very foolish short-term thinking, we have now run up a national debt of 16.4 trillion dollars.  It is the largest debt in the history of the world, and it has gotten more than 23 times larger since Jimmy Carter first entered the White House.

The chart that you see below is a recipe for national financial suicide...

U.S. National Debt

Of course things have accelerated over the past four years.  Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the U.S. government has run a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars every single year, and we have stolen more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.

It is the biggest theft of all time.  What we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is beyond criminal.

And now our debt is at a level that most economists would consider terminal.  When Barack Obama first entered the White House, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent.  Today, it is up to 103 percent.

We are officially in "the danger zone".

If things really were "getting better" in America, we would not need to borrow so much money.

Our politicians are stealing from the future in order to make the present look better.  During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

That is utter insanity!

If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off.

So what is the solution?

Get ready to laugh.

The most prominent economic journalist in the entire country, Paul Krugman of the New York Times, recently suggested the following in an article that he wrote entitled "Kick That Can"...

Realistically, we’re not going to resolve our long-run fiscal issues any time soon, which is O.K. — not ideal, but nothing terrible will happen if we don’t fix everything this year. Meanwhile, we face the imminent threat of severe economic damage from short-term spending cuts.


So we should avoid that damage by kicking the can down the road. It’s the responsible thing to do.

You mean that we might actually do damage to the debt-fueled economic fantasy world that we are living in if we stopped stealing so much money from future generations?

Oh the humanity!

It is horrifying to think that all that one of the "top economic minds" in America can come up with is to "kick the can" down the road some more.

Unfortunately, neither Paul Krugman nor most of the American people understand that our financial system is actually designed to create government debt.

The bankers that helped create the Federal Reserve intended to permanently enslave the U.S. government to a perpetually expanding spiral of debt, and their plans worked.

At this point, the U.S. national debt is more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was first created.

So why don't the American people understand what the Federal Reserve system is doing to us?

It is because most of them are still plugged into the matrix.  A Zero Hedge article that I came across today put it beautifully...

US society in a nutshell: Chris Dorner has been around for a week and has 222 million results on Google; the Federal Reserve has been around for one hundred years and has 187 million results.

If nothing is done about our exploding debt, it is only a matter of time before we reach financial oblivion.

According to Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff, the U.S. government is facing a "present value difference between projected future spending and revenue" of 222 trillion dollars in the years ahead.

So how in the world are we going to come up with an extra 222 trillion dollars?

But it is not just the U.S. government that is drowning in debt.

Just check out this chart which shows the astounding growth of state and local government debt in recent years...

State And Local Government Debt

All over the United States there are state and local governments that are on the verge of bankruptcy.  Just check out what is going on in Detroit.  The only way that most of our state and local governments can keep going at this point is to also "kick the can" down the road some more.

And of course most of the rest of us are drowning in debt as well.

40 years ago, the total amount of debt in the U.S. economic system (government + business + consumer) was less than 2 trillion dollars.

Today, the total amount of debt in the U.S. economic system has grown to more than 55 trillion dollars.

Can anyone say bubble?

The good news is that U.S. GDP is now more than 12 times larger than it was 40 years ago.

The bad news is that the total amount of debt in our financial system is now more than 30 times larger than it was 40 years ago...

Total Credit Market Debt Owed

At the same time that we are going into so much debt, our ability to produce wealth continues to decline.

According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percent of all global economic activity in 2001.  That number dropped to 21.6 percent in 2011.  That is not just a decline - that is a nightmarish freefall.  Just check out the chart in this article.

We are becoming less competitive as a nation with each passing year.  In fact, the U.S. has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

Most Americans don't understand this, but the United States buys far more from the rest of the world than they buy from us each year.  In 2012, we had a trade deficit of more than 500 billion dollars with the rest of the world.

That means that more than 500 billion dollars that could have gone to U.S. workers and U.S. businesses went out of the country instead.

So how does our country survive if hundreds of billions of dollars more is flowing out of the country than is flowing into it?

Well, to make up the shortfall we go to the countries that we sent our money to and we beg them to lend it back to us.  If that doesn't work, we just print and borrow even more money.

Overall, the United States has run a trade deficit of more than 8 trillion dollars with the rest of the world since 1975.

That is 8 trillion dollars that could have saved U.S. businesses, paid the salaries of U.S. workers and that would have helped fund government.

But instead, our foolish policies have greatly enriched China and the oil barons of the Middle East.

Sadly, politicians from both political parties continue to boldly support the one world economic agenda of the global elite.

Just consider how destructive many of these "free trade" deals have been to our economy...

When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars.

By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.

Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6 million dollars (million with a little "m") for the entire year.

In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars.  That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.

In particular, our trade with China is extremely unbalanced.  Today, U.S. consumers spend approximately 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that Chinese consumers spend on goods and services from the United States.

But isn't getting cheap stuff from China good?

No, because it costs us good paying jobs.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.

Overall, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been shut down since 2001.  During 2010, manufacturing facilities in the United States were shutting down at a rate of 23 per day.  How can anyone say that "things are getting better" when our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted?

The truth is that there are never going to be enough jobs in America ever again, because millions of our jobs are being sent overseas and millions of our jobs are being lost to technology.

You won't hear this on the news, but the percentage of the civilian labor force in the United States that is employed has been steadily declining every single year since 2006.

Younger workers have been hit particularly hard.  In 2007, the unemployment rate for the 20 to 29 age bracket was about 6.5 percent.  Today, the unemployment rate for that same age group is about 13 percent.

If you are under the age of 30 and you aren't living with your parents, there is a really good chance that you are living in poverty.  If you can believe it, U.S. families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.

Our economy has been steadily bleeding huge numbers of middle class jobs, and many of those jobs have been replaced by low paying jobs in recent years.

According to one study, 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have been low wage jobs.

And at this point, an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.

Oh, but "things are getting better", right?

Maybe if you live on Wall Street or if you are an employee of the federal government.

But for most families this economic decline has been a total nightmare.  Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years.  Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

Sometimes people forget how good things were about a decade ago.  About three times as many new homes were sold in the United States in 2005 as were sold in 2012.

But we like to live in denial.

In fact, a lot of families are trying to keep up their standards of living by going into tremendous amounts of debt.

Back in 1983, the bottom 95 percent of all income earners in the United States had 62 cents of debt for every dollar that they earned.  By 2007, that figure had soared to $1.48.

Fake it until you make it, right?

But how much debt can our system possibly handle?

Total home mortgage debt in the United States is now about 5 times larger than it was just 20 years ago.

Total credit card debt in the United States is now more than 8 times larger than it was just 30 years ago.

We are a nation that is completely addicted to debt, but as the financial crisis of 2008 demonstrated, all of that debt can have horrific consequences.

As the economy has slowed in recent years, the Federal Reserve has decided that "the solution" is to recklessly print money in an attempt to get the debt spiral cranked up again.

Have they gone overboard?  You be the judge...

Monetary Base 2013

And of course this won't have any affect on the value of the money that you have been saving up all these years right?


Every single dollar that you own is continually losing value...

Purchasing Power Of The Dollar

Overall, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by more than 96 percent since the Federal Reserve was first created.

As the cost of living continues to go up and wages continue to go down, millions of American families have fallen out of the middle class and into poverty.

If you can believe it, the number of Americans on food stamps has grown from about 17 million in the year 2000 to more than 47 million today.

But "things are getting better", right?

Incredibly, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless.  This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.

But "things are getting better", right?

There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing.  That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

But "things are getting better", right?

In 1999, 64.1 percent of all Americans were covered by employment-based health insurance.  Today, only 55.1 percent are covered by employment-based health insurance.

But "things are getting better", right?

Today, more Americans than ever have found themselves forced to turn to the federal government for help.

Overall, the federal government runs nearly 80 different "means-tested welfare programs", and at this point more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one of them.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives direct monetary benefits from the federal government.  Back in 1983, less than a third of all Americans lived in a home that received direct monetary benefits from the federal government.

So is it a good sign or a bad sign that the percentage of Americans that are financially dependent on the federal government is at an all-time high?

And in future years the number of Americans that are receiving benefits from the federal government is projected to absolutely skyrocket.

Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid.  Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid, and things are about to get a whole lot worse.  It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

If you take a look at Medicare, things are very more sobering.

As I wrote recently, it is being projected that the number of Americans on Medicare will grow from 50.7 million in 2012 to 73.2 million in 2025.

At this point, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars over the next 75 years.  That comes to approximately $328,404 for every single household in the United States.

Are you ready to contribute your share?

Social Security is a complete and total nightmare as well.

Right now, there are approximately 56 million Americans collecting Social Security benefits.

By 2035, that number is projected to soar to an astounding 91 million.

Overall, the Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years.

Oh, but don't worry because "things are getting better", right?

I honestly do not know how anyone can look at the numbers above and come to the conclusion that the economy is in good shape.

We have accumulated the largest mountain of debt in the history of the world, our economic infrastructure is being gutted, we are bleeding good jobs, government dependence is at an all-time high and we are getting poorer as a nation with each passing day.

But other than that, everything is rainbows and lollipops, right?

If you want to see the economic collapse, just open up your eyes.

And if dramatic changes are not made quickly, things are going to get much, much worse from here.

Please share this article with as many people as possible.  Time is quickly running out and there are a whole lot of people out there that we need to wake up while we still can.

We know one government that is stocking up on some alternative precious metals; lead, copper and brass.  DHS has bought over 1.5 billion rounds of ammunition over the past year and a half.  Most of it, hollow point ammunition.  This is a huge stockpile, but it's anyone's guess as to the reason.

The Heart's picture

"This is a huge stockpile, but it's anyone's guess as to the reason."

A guess: Suppose you knew well that the banksters were going to devalue the money in peoples bank accounts (really pissing people off), as well as the currency itself (as other countries are doing now), all the while keeping them focused on everything you can to distract them that could well be 'wag the dog' style created. Suppose a bank holiday was coming to do this as it has been done before, all the while training massive amounts of murderous mercenary troops to go house to house to take out all the seditious americans that hold dear their God given rights and the foundations that America was built on. Suppose that as one country begins the currency wars, another will follow suit, and so on until it happens in the USA. All according to well laid bankseronian plans of course. Don't you think every fool that is stupid enough to stand with the zionist/nazi/fascist/evil/ugly bankster money changer empire of horrendous evil and wrong-filled corruption is going to REALLY NEED those hollow points to defend themselves, and the wicked banksters that have hired them the mercenaries to protect the god money?

"One thing you can be sure of is, just as the people of Venezuela had no forewarning about the devaluation of their currency, we won’t be told until it’s already too late."

I think we WILL be told when the devaluation is about to occur:  they'll do it right when the denials saying they're NOT gonna do it are the loudest,

Same as it ever was.

If ANY country puts silver into circulation as money (and prices it right, say just strike Silver Eagles and put a $100 value rather than the $1 we see now) we may get FreeSilver.  Which would be an awesome sight and so completely unexpected that you really could call it a "White Swan" (for us!) or a Black Swan (for Bernanke, JPM, statists, et al).

Physical silver DOES have its place in a diversified portfolio.

Shell Game's picture

I'm with DoChen and history on this one, gold is the ultimate SoV across time.  But, for velocity I would go with pre-1964 90% silver every time.

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

Throw in some platinum with that gold and silver, and you're covered!

Nickel slabs are supposed to be good as well, based on stories I've heard from people who lived through the collapse of the Soviet block. Nickel holds its value throughout history quite well, once oxidized it looks like a pile of slate (practically worthless and hidden in plain sight) and it is difficult to steal, since you can have a stack weighing in the tons.

The Heart's picture

" But, for velocity I would go with pre-1964 90% silver every time."

One often wonders what there will be left to buy in a country after the planed chaos and destruction by other countries has taken place. Will there be anything left in america after it is nuked, or bio/chem attacked? Will there be any worthy environments left to grow food in? Will there be anyone left at all with anything of value to trade silver dimes with?

Open question to the forum elders here that have knowledge about nazi germany during World War Two.:

What did people have to trade with in the bombed out cities, and what was there to trade for with real silver coinage then?

And, will other countries take the american silver coinage after the holocaust and elimination of the american empire of dust?

Thank you in advance for your educational Light.

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

I appreciate that you care but just because the dollar fails to act as a sustainable currency does not mean the world will fall apart.  In fact it is possible we will be better off without it. 

We used gold and silver as money up until 50 some years ago, and for thousands of years we did fine.  So the dollar collapses and we go back to a real money standard, so what? 

Life will go on.

plus 'accessory' barter....went to a gunshow with a friend of mine this past weekend. he was bartering/selling primarily magazines he had picked up CHEAP years ago at army surplus. he had about 30 mags (mix of AR 30 rounders and M14), sold the M14s for $50/ea, sold the ARs for $25/ea. He turned right around and exchanged his paper 'barter' for most of the cost of a new AR (even at inflated rates)....

How long did it take for Rome to fall?

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

This is not Rome.  This is all Nation-States printing an amount of debt/credit out of thin air that is unbelievable.

Brindle702's picture

Are you're implying that this time is different?  That once confidence in fiat fails it'll all break down at once?  Why, that could happen overnight!


I'm glad that not every nation-state uses fiat, oh wait...


What was fiat again?  Fancy paper with pretty pictures on it backed by the full faith ... full faith ... nothing tangible ??? just an idea (faith)

A Nanny Moose's picture

Faith is the result of outsourcing of one's capacity to think.

Matt's picture

Rome fell by devaluing it's currency in order to deal with chronic deficits. However, their coins were silver; the devaluing was by lowering silver content. They collapsed when the coins were just dipped in silver.

Who knows how far you can devalue paper before people lose faith? Unlike with silver, you can theorectically devalue fiat money forever. 

tenpanhandle's picture

I'd have much more faith (zero now) in our politicians if they were just dipped in silver.

How many derivatives did the Roman Senators hold? How many High Frequency Traders?

Matt's picture

I'm betting food or energy shortage will be what takes things down, not a bunch of bits and bytes.

DaveyJones's picture

you're absolutely right but (1) of the reasons we're in this predicament is that too many people have confused the unreal economy (computers + bloated finance X crack) with a real economy based on real things that matter. Like energy and food and making stuff with sutff - that you don;t just throw away. And your government (together with "bankers") are the biggest perpetrators of this fraud. This is what builds the cliff higher and pushes us faster and faster to the edge.

My kids will be so proud

If you want to get technical, the last vestiges of the Roman emprie fell in 1453 AD with the fall of Constantinople.

The capture of Constantinople (and two other Byzantine splinter territories soon thereafter) marked the end of the last remnant of the Roman Empire, an imperial state which had lasted for nearly 1,500 years.

Matt's picture

Interesting how they only count Rome as an Empire once it had an Emperor, rather than including any of the hundreds of years when the Roman Republic was occupying other territories.

CPL's picture

They didn't.  Hence the schism, protestantism, revisionism all the way to taco's with Jesus's face in them.  Most people at the time ignored Rome.  Popes were busy flouting papal decrees and using their own armies against one another in coup after coup.  Ordinary magisterium or extraordinary magisterium are the terms you want to read about if looking it up.

Most of the Popes btw were vicious old pricks.  They would kneecap each other with these things to fuck with the next guy because of Papal infallibility.  Anything said by the pope is the word of god, the word of god cannot be questioned.  And it can be about anything from required wheat yields (as decreed by god) even if there had been a drought.  To how all royals must fuck one another to keep it 'pure', or as we all know it, assbackwards inbred retards.  It's insane how much shit all of them spouted in all frames of mind, about everything.

Example, Pope Benedict the IX was just an awful human being.  He's the primary reason why the Orthodox church was started, Scotland, Wales and Ireland was burned over and over again and pillaged for centuries by their local stewards, 'Royalty'.  Any case, Benedict wrote a tonne of unnecessary decrees and papal bulls that forced Pope Urban II, the next Pope in line to continue on with the murderous decree to bind faith by the tip of a sword because to defy them was to place question on Papal infallibility.  And popes that did that usually died by heart attack (cough...poison...mostly).


It took nearly half a millennium to admit the earth travels around the sun because of one.  Now imagine all the loopy shit written down over 2000 years.  You think tax code is fucked up?  No no.  It's a mini-bic in comparison to the sun.  it's why it takes nearly 500 years to figure out, in religious 'legal' terms, that the earth is NOT the centre of the universe.

That's just the decrees.  Worse was the blessings.  Pope so much as waves a hand over a bucket and some guy is there to inventory it then collect as much information about the bucket as possible.  There are warehouses full of "holy" combs, toothpicks, old shoes, you name it.  It's in a box and has a back story.

Actually, AFAIK but without references, the legal entity of the roman empire was then transfered to Venice, and then to Holy roman germanic Empire. It ended around 1804 after the dissolution of that empire by Napoleon

"end of an era"???

How about the end of an epoch?

The whole shebang is ending with cheap energy.

Einstien was once asked how the 3rd world war would be fought. He replied that he did not know, however he knew how the 4th world war would be fought. When prompted futher, he replied, "with sticks and stones."

Welcome to the new epoch.

Parrotile's picture

Not quite:

His comment was "if the Third World War was fought with Nuclear Weapons (and he was thinking strategic rather than tactical weapons), then the Fourth World War would be fought with sticks and stones"

Although I will willingly grant you the almost certain probability that, with the current degree of Global unhappiness, the probability of a "hot war" degenerating to a Nuclear war does seem to be rather high . . . . . .

And another sign of things getting better: I've had an account at a certain bank for over 20 years that never incurred a fee. Last month, the bank arbitrarily decided that my 'product' (apparently it no longer called an account) is subject to a $5 monthly fee if I don't keep a $1, 500 minimun balance. If this is 'better', they can shove the entire thing right up their ass. Are we tired of getting the shaft yet? How much more will the sheeple take before they wake the fuck up?

when?  Simple, when the food and fuel stop flowing, not before.  History is very clear on this.  Unfortunately, by that time, the elite will be in their gated communities with serious security details.  Same as it ever was.

Hey what do you know, the food stamp numbers are up

Am I confused, or in modern global corruption, are the elite a smaller number and the serfs a larger?  Maybe drones are the common denominator?

Come on, don't end the story there.  Eventually, the elites are separated from their heads and we start over, promising ourselves not to make THAT mistake again.
