America’s Over-Dependency on Asia

September 7th, 2011

At least the federal government is going to be getting America out of its latest pickle.  At the beginning of October it promise that credit would continue to flow through the country’s mortgage system that is not faring so well.  This move occurred with the fed government’s support of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which led to renewed concerns about just what poor shape the country’s economy is in and questioned if it has become way too reliant on the investments of regions such as Asia.

Of course, it’s been known for a long time that Asia is a more stable investment region than the States.  Individuals and large corporations like Wal-Mart and Yum Brands have recognized this fact for a long time already and have been making substantial investments throughout the region, mainly in China since that country seems to have way greater potential than the United States of America.  But if US companies keep looking outside for success, America will never recover. And then it becomes a bit of a chicken and egg situation.

America is currently very reliant on Asia for its economic failure.  But while the region has been bailing her out, the real way for America to become independent again is to do just that – stop being so reliant on other regions and start investing in its own.
