For several decades political scientists and other scholars have been commenting on the fact that America has embarked upon an era of deindustrialization. Notably, the nation’s three-tier system (i.e., lower-, middle- and upper-class) is withering away as the gap between the haves and the have-nots increase creating Third World poverty in the land of opportunity. Why?  

With other nations aspiring to revolution in pursuit of “freedom” and “democracy,” America’s ruling class is looking at the bigger picture. They are in a global ball game where these developing countries will eventually become consumers and producers of goods and services in their own rite. That said, understand that, if for no other reason than to remain a global competitor, America’s failing banking structure, housing and stock markets, health care and educational systems, job markets, and other social service systems-must reduce the nation to a Third World economy. Otherwise, America will not be able to compete with those countries that specialize in, for example, manufacturing goods at a low labor overhead cost. We’re talking about countries like Mexico that pay labors on the average of $20 dollars a day to make billions of dollars of goods to export to America and other wealthy nations.  

Thus, America’s ruling elite has been in the process of benching its three-tier class system to remain in the global ball game. The two classes represented by the haves and have-nots are increasing in favor of the have-nots because we also live in a world of rapidly diminishing natural resources, increasing population projections, globalization, displacement of human labor through technology (ergonomics), and the diminishing power of labor unions.  

These happenings have prompted with haste America’s ruling class to restructure the nation’s economy in an attempt to force the have-nots to accept next to nothing in wages to produce billions of dollars in goods to export to newly industrialized nations. To this end, critic Tom Ely would say of the Obama administration:  

Far from advancing the interests of the majority of the black population, identity politics has become the vehicle for a sharp attack on African Americans workers and the working class as a whole. While his administration has handed over upwards of $12 trillion to the finance houses, Obama has manipulated the bankruptcy of the auto industry in order to drive down the wages and living standards of the working class…..    

The vitality of America’s standing as a global superpower depends on the success of this endeavor for reasons provided by the late Adam Smith (1723-90): “The riches, and so far as power depends upon riches, the power of every country, must always be in proportion to the value of its annual produce… [For] the great object of the political [economy] of every country, is to increase the riches and power of that country.””  

That said, in order to maintain and increase the riches of the ruling class, the American government has again began to loot foreign nations of their resources (e.g., oil), and have been deindustrializing the nation’s infrastructure so as to resituate its current standing as the leading consumer of foreign goods to the leading producer of exports. The deindustrialization this entails calls for creating Third World poverty here in America.  

Needless to say, if the powers that be have their way in continuing to carryout this plan, there’s no questioning who is going to makeup the majority of the have-nots—People of Color!
