Linked on our blogs with Imported Drugs Lack Necessary Oversight.

  • EconomyInCrisis.org is an organization dedicated to educating legislators and the American public on the destruction of our country’s industrial base, the impact this has on national and economic security, and how it effects our standard of living. We publish critical but overlooked facts and figures, keeping our readers up-to-date with daily articles regarding the U.S. economy.
  • We compare what led to American industrial and economic world leadership with current policies and the present crippling of our industries. We then objectively extrapolate the near-term outlook and risks for our country, businesses and individuals. When possible we offer solutions to our weakening economic condition.

Solutions /Major Economic Concerns Facing the United States:  

  • The United States is facing economic disaster on a scale few nations have ever experienced. Most people are unaware of the easily observable signs of this emerging crisis. While we persist in our superpower mentality, we have quietly become a second-class country in many respects.
  • We no longer manufacture what we need to sustain ourselves, we import much more than we export, and we are selling off our assets and taking on massive debts to sustain a standard of living we can no longer afford. Not only is this not the way America became a superpower but it is a sure way to lose this status.
  • We are failing even to acknowledge predatory foreign trade practices undermining US industry. Instead we encourage US manufacturers to design, engineer, and produce in third world markets like Mexico and China.

Reversing the Trend: Some Suggestions for Action:

  • Access to our markets must be conditioned on a strategic analysis of our own national needs first and foremost. As things stand, we have handed our sovereign rights to our domestic markets to international bodies like the World Trade Organization and are committed to disastrous “one-way free trade” agreements such as Value Added Tax regulations and NAFTA. We are in a dramatically different position from emerging low-wage markets. They have everything to gain, and we have everything to lose. Our policies should carefully protect our wealth and resources rather than simply provide the lowest consumer cost regardless of the impact on our industries and our workers.
  • Promoting open markets and economic growth abroad will not alone rebalance America’s trade accounts and domestic industrial collapse. Our industries have been so disarmed and dismantled that we now lack the knowledge, capacity, and investment capital to facilitate self-sustaining production. Dramatic new direction is required.

Key Solutions:

  • Drastic action is needed to restore our economic and financial independence and we must begin immediately to rebuild our industries. The first essential is that our government should ensure that it is once again profitable to produce most goods and services in American factories employing American workers.
  • We must establish policies that prevent other countries from doing to us what they would never let us do to them.
