    Actually, that's the smartest thing about it all. The intelligent people in the world know that if the American economy fails much of the worlds economy will suffer for it. We need to produce more to make the profits, so spending the money in our own country and making more to export will boost the profits.

    Apparently our foreign trading partners don't agree.

    Stopping all of it would be just stupid. Trading is the key to profit, not just importing or exporting but both. We aren't producing much of anything now, at least not much that other countries want, and what we do produce is very inferior to what other countries make. So we still need the other countries products until we can produce something that actually has a decent quality again.

    I don't like how people protest only buy American, but either way it goes the stimulus package will not boost the economy. The package is just devaluing the money more and more. The amero is coming, our fiat money is about to be international fiat money, sad.
