United States of decay ?

Lord Geoffrey Howe once urged Maggie Thatcher to leave Liverpool to 'managed decline' is this happening in the USA ? some of these historic buildings being left to rot like this is sad. We imagine the USA to be the land of plenty, maybe this is no longer the case ?

You'll

find places like that in the UK as well. It's just what's left behind as places go through boom, bust and society changes - new places will be built elsewhere whilst old is left to rot.


EDIT: Japan has a whole island like this called Battleship Island.

Corruption

i don't understand politics very well,but i see what i see.The American government had a great and seemed for many year system of a thing called the senate which was a bunch of guys(think its like a jury 13 or so)who were there to make any final decisions in parliament before any policies become law.Three quarters of the country's wealth was with the people and one quarter with rich,only 25-30 years ago,but with corruption the rich and powerful have managed to turn this completely around so today three quarters of the wealth and money is now with the minority rich,this has mainly been brought about by the rich corrupt businessmen who have infiltrated the senate and now run the country not any elected president,in fact the president has no or little power these days,like the English monarchy.In times of crises like what the world is going through at the moment these people keep there wealth close and defend it at all cost,which is one of the main reasons the economic crisis happend in the first place,the corrupt rich and powerfull now own most of the banking and have the majority of shares in very large companies like oil etc(thats the way i see it and read it anyways,more to it but i wont go on).So where do they go from here?

Thatcher/Reagan

Free market economy laid the foundations. American manufacturing was decimated as ours with the rush to outsource. As usual the minority of uber wealthy did/continue to do very nicely thank you.
