The American consumer is quite able to support a vibrant and growing standard of living for all Americans. Not so long ago if you could produce something that sold well in New York City you could make a fortune. If you could sell well (American) nationwide you could become super rich. Why have we become slaves to the international economy? A crash in Greece (for heaven's sake) rocks our economy. It's become a crock. We can do quite well (thank you) if we would go back to produce/buy/sell American. Am I a xenophobe? Very Right! Am I a Radical Nationalist? Damn right!!
