Government central bank (in the U.S., the Federal Reserve) manipulate their "funny money" fiat currencies against each other. Those central banks constitute a cabal with the agenda of achieving a "new world order" (NWO). Part of that agenda requires wiping out the U.S. middle class and building up, relatively, other countries. (Makes no difference to THEM if the U.S. is brought down -- they still have their compounds, bomb and bioweapon shelters, limos, villas, minions, etc.)
Anyway, that agenda has resulted in manufacturing and mining sent to other countries. Those are the jobs that pay well. Agriculture will stay here, but the workers can be cheaply paid illegal aliens.
A country, to be wealthy, needs people actually BUILDING/MANUFACTURING things. Not taking in each others' laundry or serving as greeters at WalMart.
