A friend of mine who is a stock broker told me, "a lot of our economic problems are because American's [citizen's] are investing in Foreign Growth Funds instead of American."
It is not only are our corporations and government investing in our own demise, we [us] are doing a good job of it too.
Disclaimer: I'm not a client of the above stock broker, we are both Marine Vietnam Veterans. I met him at the V.A. Hospital getting our hearing checked. I was in the artillery and I don't know what his hearing problem was. We were both told, that by govt standards we were not deaf enough yet. On the QT, a hearing technician told me, it is harder now to get hearing aides, they are giving priority to the new Veterans coming back from the Middle East.
