This Will Blow Your Mind! Think All Is Well With The US Economy?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


 

 This entry records a country’s net trade in goods and services, plus net earnings from rents, interest, profits, and dividends, and net transfer payments (such as pension funds and worker remittances) to and from the rest of the world during the period specified. These figures are calculated on an exchange rate basis, i.e., not in purchasing power parity (PPP) terms.

Definition: The current account balance is the difference between a country’s savings and its investment. “[If the current account balance is] positive, it measures the portion of a country’s saving invested abroad; if negative, the portion of domestic investment financed by foreigners’ savings.”

The current account balance is defined by the sum of the value of imports of goods and services plus net returns on investments abroad, minus the value of exports of goods and services, where all these elements are measured in the domestic currency.

      This breaks my heart. I’m to old for it to matter much to me, but you young people will suffer.

      War is more costly than peace and putting corporations first “profit over people” does not work.

      Americans through their being distracted, dumbed down and divided have allowed a very corrupt government to seize hold of our country.

      We have been constantly at war for decades.

      Approximately 2 weeks or less before the 9/11 attacks Donald Rumsfeld stated on public TV that there was over a trillion dollars of missing money that could not be accounted for. Strangely enough, these records were archived in Building 7. This is a matter of record.

      You can justify this any way you want to, but it seems very suspicious that such a huge stockpile of government records involving mountains of missing money got destroyed at so convenient a time in our history.

      • ElOregonian

        Actually grandma, it was 2.3 TRILLION Dollars and he said that on Sept. 10, 2001 and ironically it was missing from… BUILDING 7!!! GO FIGURE! WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?!? Especially when nothing touched that building and it happened to collapse into it’s own FOOTPRINT!… Kind’a like it was dropped by a professional demolition outfit, huh?… AND!… It was REPORTED (funny, who was it who told the BBC about it prior to it’s collapsing?) LIVE ON the tele…

        or, the Solomon Bros. Building (Building 7)
