(W)hat makes the difference between US domestic demand suppression and German, that leads to a trade surplus?

In the US elites who had captured control of government proceeded to maximize their persona revenue without regard for the impact on the overall economy because they could. Manufacturing was "offshored" far beyond the ability of the remaining manufacturing sector and other sectors to produce even a neutral trade balance. Germany seems to have acted much more responsibly and with careful attention to trade balances.
