America?s Has-Been Economy

By Paul Craig Roberts

A country cannot be a superpower without a high tech economy, and America?s high tech economy is eroding as I write.

The erosion began when US corporations outsourced manufacturing. Today many US companies are little more than a brand name selling goods made in Asia.

The stuff that is being

made in China isn't being invented there. Isn't a moon landing high tech? Does anyone else claim the bragging rights.

Try to get a grip on reality, slave labor in Korea or China doesn't mean we are being passed. It would be simple to arrest innocent citizens and force them to make engines as cheap as China. The point is, should we.

No that you.

Asian American, you might be better off going back to Pat Buchanon who you couldn't defend or state if you agreed with his policies and statements. Happy

Many good links that I have added to my bookmarks. But you didn't have to post them. You could have posted them after Jack told you what he found so interesting with your posts. However I am glad that it is more than me who find your posts very interesting!

In the meantime, since I was born and raised down here in South Texas and have a working knowledge of the Spanish/Texmex language, do you know what "Sancho" is in English??? And being part of your adopted name certainly begs the expression, "WHOA"...is that really an appropriate adopted given name among a moral civilized audience???

natural selection, survival is the only essential ingredient in order to have any organisms,
in existence, anywhere, at all. No special characteristic of the genome is required, other
than the ability to ?ADAPT? to the extant conditions.
(if you cannot adapt to the changing world you will become extinct)

Pre Industrial ???
Industrial Revolutions I Europe 1800?
Industrial Revolutions II USA 1900?
Industrial Revolutions III China / India 2000?
Industrial Revolutions IV "TBA"

take a tour of Ellis Island and see the outsourced manufacturing from Europe to the US and just read some of the propaganda bulletins of that time period.

Is Europe a has-been? NO

Natural Selection
by Asian American / April 15, 2005 8:20 AM PDT
In reply to: Darwin

Regarding natural selection, the environment selects for those organisms that have the genes that allow for reproduction in the specific environment in question. With some animals, rape is the norm because it is very reproductively advantageous in their given environment. So, I would not believe some evolved trait is positive just because it allows for the highest number of offspring production. Another example is how in today's modern culture, the environment allows for higher fertility among the lower intelligent: the least intelligent people are having the most children, causing a world decine in IQ, see "Dysgenics: Genetic Deterioration
in Modern Populations" http://www.eugenics.net/papers/lynnrev.html

There is an overall trend between IQ and number of offspring: the higher the IQ, the less children they have. Here in America, the welfare class, criminals, and minimum wage earners have more children than the upper class such as doctors, engineers, scientists, lawyers, and the like. The same trend exists everywhere in the world. Professor Lynn says that genotypic intelligence is decreasing each generation as a result of this. But, if you want to compare national IQ averages of the countries around the world, here is the chart: http://www.rlynn.co.uk/pages/article_intelligence/t4.htm

Correlation may be close, but I think wrong

...the higher the IQ, the less children they have.

There are two other correlations that are more accurate, IMO, as long as you recognize certain beliefs also affect the number of offspring. And this may apply more in the US than in other cultures, of that I'm not certain.

One, the higher the overall education, of parents and children, the lower number of offspring those children have.

Two, the higher the average income, across two or more generations, the lower the number of offspring.

I think you'll find those correlate better than an attempt to correlate native intelligence to number of offspring, which has a ring of elitism and criticism of those than have more offspring, since according to the quote......

..., and minimum wage earners have more children than the upper class...

Education status and socio-economic is positively correlated to innate intelligence (IQ). Two articles on IQ research and how it affect life success are:

It shouldn't come as any surprise that getting ahead and being successful in life correlates well with IQ. That appears to be why many high school dropouts from the lower classes go on to become millionaires ...

Quite probably BUT

Innate intteligence does not always correlate to education status and socio-economic positions.

Intelligent individuals born in a society, or just in a personal family situation even, that gives no opportunity for education do not correlate as proposed, but are still intelligent.
