Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US economy has always been based on booms and busts, fueled by fraudulent financing that is eventually caught out.  It really doesn't know any other way to operate.  1946-1973 was a one-generation exception based on conditions that are gone and aren't coming back.
