Did Nazi Germany have better Economic Investment than last Decade in the USA? Okay... a little tongue in cheek. But read below:
In the midst of the Great Depression, the Nazi government restored economic stability and ended mass unemployment using heavy military spending and a mixed economy of free-market and central-planning practices. Extensive public works were undertaken, including the construction of the Autobahns. The return to economic stability gave the regime enormous popularity; the suppression of all opposition made Hitler's rule mostly unchallenged. (Wasn't it Prescot Bush family that funded the Nazis in the midst of depression? see link to Guardian News)
In the USA we only concentrate on Military Spending it seems. The last big Project was the NASA Apollo Space Program. Before that you can point to the US Interstate highway System. Before that you can look at the FDR Civilian Corp that created or upgraded the US National Parks.
The question is after all TARP Money went to Wall Street and no one was prosecuted for the 2008 Financial Crisis ... and we see all the Bankers in the white house along with the people that deregulated banks and helped design the Financial Crisis ... and we see the loss of small business across many industries to corporations like Walmart, Monsanto, ... and all the off shore production, and off shore incorporation ... really a gutting of small business that matches the loss of US Jobs in Manufacturing and loss of jobs in Agriculture and small farm...
What do we see? No Domestic Policy of Investment in R&D or in making small business loans available, No Policies to help small business that could provide jobs with benefits to common workers either in service industry (little benefits) or to college graduates or to skilled technical machinists or manufacturing employees
Neither Mitt Romney or Barak Obama can even say Domestic Policy.
Washington DC Can't even say we have a Pension and Retirement Problem since $4-5 Trillion has been lost in Funds.... many Retirement Funds are actually Under Funded think $1 Trillion ... and $5 Trillion in Equity or other value has been lost in Home Mortgages.
What is a Domestic Policy? Domestic policy covers a wide range of areas, including business, education, energy, health care, law enforcement, money and taxes, natural resources, social welfare, and personal rights and freedoms.
National targets for renewable energy now exist in at least 98 countries.
Main Points of Commercial/Trade Policy:
1, to appreciate trade with other nations.
2, to protect domestic market prevailing in the country.
3, to increase the export of particular product which will help in expanding domestic market.
4, to prevent the imports of particular goods for giving protection to infant industries or developing key industry or saving foreign exchange, etc.
5, to encourage the imports of capital goods for speeding up the economic development of the country.
6, to restrict the imports of goods which create unfavourable balance of payments.
7, to assist or prevent the export or import of goods and services for achieving the desired rate of exchange.
8, to enter into trade agreements with foreign nations for stabilizing the foreign trade.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/sep/25/usa.secondworldwar (Bush Bank director in Depression, Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen's US interests) Just PROVES that banks act in their own interest and not in the interest of people who need loans in Depression or Recession.
Three sets of archives spell out Prescott Bush's involvement. All three are readily available, thanks to the efficient US archive system and a helpful and dedicated staff at both the Library of Congress in Washington and the National Archives at the University of Maryland.
