The US economy is further strengthened by its geography and natural features. It is rich in minerals and has vast areas of fertile land perfect for farming. There is extensive access to the sea, which has greatly assisted economic growth in the US history. Due to mass immigration through the 19th and 20th century, the US has been able to sustain a large workforce, particularly with relation to lower tier jobs. And because of the size of the US, there is more space to manage this influx of population than in some other countries.
Immigration also means that the growth of the retired population who will require social security payments while not providing any new tax revenues into the economy, can be sustained as there is a continual supply of new taxpayers. In Japan, where land is a limited resource, this has become a huge problem, where an aging population causes issue of an unstable economy. Unemployment since the global economic downturn remains relatively high, the official figure being 9%, but dependent upon which measure being used may be as high as 15%. As the downturn has forced wages down, it is increasingly the case that new jobs are going to the immigrant population who are happier being paid less. This means that unemployment among the native US population is higher than average and is set to stay this way for some time to come.
The withdrawal of easy credit as a result of the recession has also meant that there are a large number of people whose homes have been repossessed or who are in arrears with their mortgage payments. In turn this has meant a drop in consumer spending with a subsequent knock on impact to revenues of small and large businesses. These businesses account of over 90% of the economy of the US, so the impact is clear.
However, in areas of technology and science, the United States is seeing massive growth as companies supplying social networking, internet searches and computing or tablet technology have growing exponentially in the past decade. The way people interact particularly the generation born since 1990, 98% of whom have used, or regularly use a social networking site has altered radically in those years, and if world economies are changed in the same way, then there is a whole new phase of United States economic growth to come in the remainder of the twenty-first century.
The present economic policy of the United states government bodies isn’t completely sufficient to the scenario, and also the primary point that demonstrates it’s the reality that the way it describes worldwide crisis, doesn’t reflect the truth. Usually speaking, the economic techniques of the world crisis’ explanation are “accurate” only in fairly a narrow range of guidelines which merely are absent right now. Furthermore, we might not expect the change of the scenario to these parameters neither in short-term, nor in long-term viewpoint. The knowledge of this reality by the United states government bodies didn’t occur too lengthy – for approximately ten year now. appears to be the time of ‘sophistication’.
To discover it to be accurate we will keep in mind the current presentation of Charles Evans, the head of Chicago , il FRS division, at the yearly conference specialized in questions of the present monetary policy. Based on his thoughts and opinions, the united states economy now faced the scenario when numerous particular monetary control levers, such as the Rate, have now ceased to work. This is true, but then he provided to fix economy with the ordinary monetary measures what as we can see now isn’t efficient and won’t counter issues of unemployment and low inflation.
The entire world crisis’s primary reason is obvious: no marketplace growth is feasible any much more, and also the primary stimulus to the economic development now’s the all-time decreasing price of credit cash. But it’s economy not math and this rate cannot be lower than zero. This rate went down to ’0′ by the end of 2008.
So, we now have two methods of acting. The would be to limit the provision of cash (this way will trigger recession), but then the so-expected growth will happen. But such approach doesn’t suit the monetarists. They might not forecast the economic crisis, then they refused the crisis, now they mimic activity countering it.
The 2nd method is what Evans mentioned “more liberal policy”.
The chief executive of the Boston Federal government Reserve Bank, Eric Rosengren, suspected the possibility United states economy faces deflation. He said we require to counter it “immediately and vigorously”, not to go the way Japan did in 80s when the country within a decade faced deflation. This fear is natural, simply because the 8 months of 2010 showed only 1,1% inflation rate and it went along with unemployment growth and decrease of economic activity index. The FRS chairman Ben Bernanke had already mentioned that the only method to reach 2% inflation is printing much more dollars. But why not to have deflation for some particular time period, then decrease of economy, then once more the steady phase of economic growth? Neither they explain this nor how inflation will assist the US economy.
We’ll show you the distinction of this two methods. The deflation scenario means fast decrease in economy, decay of the present financial system (which had produced all of the monetarists). The inflation scenario means the death of ‘real sector’ of economy that goes along with slow and lengthy period of recession. The monetarists have no concept of what to do but are eager to show they control the scenario.
Whom you believe will probably be the victim?
