With the Federal Reserve managing interest rates in order to artificially create winners and losers the stock market soars. For the American people however there is still no recovery and many die with thousands of dollars of debt. No work, mass immigration, the welfare state, and price inflation are all signs that the system is broken.
The managerial class sees the United States as nothing more than an economic zone from with they can extract resources. So there is no incentive to actually solve any problems, once no more wealth can be extracted other economic zones exist to play the globalism game in.
This is why many want to see more America first policy from President Trump and less long failed neocon and RINO policy.
