Overwhelming American communities with mortgage, auto and credit card debt as we shift manufacturing and research capacity, jobs and approximately $10 trillion of capital offshore—much of it by illegal means— has been the US economic strategy since 1996.
This was a strategy that depended on massive government spending and market intervention. It was intentionally designed to leave us where we are now. There clearly is a plan. I am not privy too it.

While living with the horror and grief of realizing that most would not heed those warnings, I concluded that we were experiencing a financial coup d’etat.
