The single biggest contributor to the declining US is simply NAFTA. Please visit my website at http://www.tohellwithfreetrade.com for information about how NAFTA and free trade agreements kill the US economy.

This is not spam and yes I am real. I will respond but every single person here needs to know this. GATT, free trade agreements, WSO and the new one about to be signed with Korea and going to completely kill every American job along with the economy

I am very interested in getting information on how NAFTA has affected the current U.S. and world wide economic situation. Wasn't the original intention (as the name implies) of this agreement to balance trade across the North American borders of Canada, U.S. and Mexico? Then Bill Clinton was pressured by the republican leadership to forgive China's human rights abuses and be included in the agreement as a way of harnessing a captive and cheap labor force .He then signed it into law. By the way, The anniversary of the signing is next month and I encourage all OWS members and supporters to Mourn this day as ground zero for the failing economy,and the beginning of the end for America as we know it!

Also, the main agenda of occupy wall street should be the removal of these agreements.

The US loses when the world gains. That is because the US took from the world for a long time. Not just the US, started with Europe. It is more easy to see when you consider the scale or justice. The same amount of good owned by some and then owned by many. The 'some' will lose out. Do I agree with you? Probably. Was it inevitable? Probably. Eventually this will be one world and if we're not careful it won't just be the Third Rock, it's be called Third World. Everyone will be poor. Overpopulation is a huge part of it. In the 1800s when everyone plundered Africa, there were a billion people on earth. Now 7 billion and Africa wants their money back.
