developed nations? cause of depression II? You bet... If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Move out all great paying jobs from the USA, and if that is not enough add insult to injury and import millions of H1b visa holders that you can keep on a tight leash and control. And then when it seems nobody has any money left, allow anybody to buy houses with nothing down and no jobs, also furnish the same house on zero interest furniture loans and of course the house looks bad with an older car. So buy a car on credit with, you have guessed Zero down. Do you see anything wrong with this picture? And what caused this problem in the first place, yup you have guessed it right, NO JOB GROWTH.... You see the powers to be who have the spigot of lending in hand knew this already for at least ten years back. But the great locomotive of US consumer driven marvel HAD TO KEEP ROLLING, at all cost. Who is it fault, Bush Jr. maybe or that asshole Cheney? Nope. Both parties and most fucking cock sucking US corporations with their whores of CEO's and higher management and the asshole pawns they have for board. I would start with hanging congress and the house and of course the fucking lobbyists.
