The End of US Capitalism

History will point back at September 2008, as the beginning of the final economic decent into the first global depression of the 21st century. If, the natural world’s symbol of the Great Depression was the dust bowl and drought throughout the 1930’s, then, hurricane and flood will become its substitute.

 America’s total world hegemony is indisputably on the wane.  Evidence to support this theory includes the nationalization of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, and the surrender of Merrill Lynch to Bank of America.  Additional exhibits offered for the record includes the near drowning of the U.S. cities of New Orleans and Houston.  

 Metaphorically, the bull, Merrill Lynch’s signature mascot and Wall Street’s icon of capitalism’s vitality and unparallel economic period of prosperity in America, is corralled under duress, and, which may signify a coming collapse of middle class opulence, which might never be duplicated.
