Areas hardest hit appear to be the “rust belt” and high population states. Could it be that pro-free market policies accepted on faith over the last 30 years have not produced wealth for the nation. The Honda Accord came out in 1980 and US Auto Management has not been able to beat it. I guess you could say Reaganomics and the Honda Accord were too much for American Business to negotiate. National planning is needed to balance business’s short term planning problem. Hiring more MBAs will not fix this threat to national security.
