The Modern Economics of the U.S.A – The Land of Debt & Demand

This is the united states of America today. The largest most powerful economy to ever exist in history. previously we have explored how the economy of the USA developed from a British colony, and into an industrial powerhouse that rose to the position of power it occupies today, which brings us onto America in the 21st century. When a lot of people think of powerful economies they will imagine huge factories, or shipping ports, plentiful farmland and maybe even things like powerful investment banks, but in reality all of that revolves around what you see here. debt and demand.
