People are not buying
They are frantically trying to get their debt down.
The reason was brought on, in a large part, because of our over consumption, instant gratification society, a lot of bad debt, a government and money system that encourages people to be in debt, and a money supply that runs on 100% debt.
Then there is our two budget busting wars and our over militarization of the planet by having our military presence in well over 100 counties.
All of this can be blamed on our politicians, no matter what party, what idiology they claim, they simply did not have the balls to admit they are screwing up, but simply played the game of keeping their heads stuffed in each other azzzes.
While that is an oversimplification, it gives you a good indication of why were are such dire straights.
do not listen to the ones blaming one ideology or party over another. The blame rest squarely on the shoulders of every politician that sits in our capital.
