    Re: What is the top reason for the current US economic problem?

    The main reasons:

    1. Deregulation - The idea that corporations will police themselves is a fallacy

    2. Destruction of our manufacturing base - primarily during the Reagan/Bush years, we saw the dismantling of our manufacturing base and the jobs shipped overseas so that corporate CEO's could pad their own pockets

    3. GOP "Trickle down" economics policies - The idea that giving huge tax cuts to the wealthy and that the wealth will trickle down to the middle and working classes has one big problem, the wealthy don't reinvest so the money never trickles down. Since the Reagan era we have seen a growing disproportionality between the top 1% and the rest of the country.

    Riiiight, so a business owners was all like, "Hey a Republican is in office I'm going to outsource now. Oh no a Democrat is in office, while the laws are no different I'm going to stop outsourcing because I like Democrats, Democrat presidents make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside."

    The only reason we're in a Depression right now is because of Free Trade.
