Today our economy is based on the economic theories of free-trade and globalization. These theories originated from the English empire, the original enemy of the US, and are intended to justify the imperial subjugation of nations and their people.

The alternative, is the "American System" of economics which was conceived to support the growth and independence of the United States through the development of infrastructure and a manufacturing base.

The resolution of today's economic crisis requires us to return to the American System, so following is a series of articles that will clarify it's history and it's purpose.

AMEN!!

Free traders = colonial exploiters = neo-slavers.

The anti-British Empire American System made us the industrial powerhouse of the world. We can return to it.

Thanks for the post, it's a keeper.

Good post - although the apex for business practice is the debt bias in the tax code. Eliminate the debt bias, eliminate the scourge of bankers, and create true, organic growth.

Could you explain more about the debt bias in the tax code? What does it mean, and why do you say it is the apex for business practice.
