    I went to the Mall yesterday to check out the new month wall Calendars at the Calendar stand, but to my dismay I noticed that every single "Lang" Calendar out for next year are all IMPORTED! I have been buying Lang wall date calendars for over 30 years, as a result I have a huge collection of Americana Wall Calendars from this fine printing company. I was very sad to know it went bankrupt last year.

    This got me to seriously think that America eventually will no longer produce anything, zilch, nada!? if we have allow our nation to become a consumers' market without a local manufacturing economy to sustain itself and be competitive, how then in hell are we going to survive in the near or long term? is our nation doomed to self-destruct? or maybe this could be a wake up call for the average American to change his/hers consumerist habits and get back to basics!? my personal thought is that if we start being less materialistic and get back to basics, maybe just maybe there is a hidden market for that? what are your thoughts about the current grave state of our economy?

    It's called "perfilization of core processes". It's normal, and doesn't mean a thing, so long as new industry is created in the counties that it happens to. The US once stole much of the manufacturing base from Europe, just after the Civil War. Europe moved on and developed other industries. The countries that had a hard time adopting, such as Portugal and Spain, have had a rough time of it, but have pulled through in the years since the 70s.

    Again, this is normal, and is part of the cycles of the world economy that date back to 1400.
