Details:

  • America aggressively interferes to put it mildly in the internal affairs of other countries as it has done in Vietnam, Iraq Afghanistan etc.America’s biggest export is War!!!
  • When US economy sneezes the world catches dengue. This is very true as US regularly interferes with the domestic affairs of other countries even when it has no conscious intention of doing so.
  • The slowing of the Indian economy and fall of Indian rupee against dollar – which resulted in increased inflation is partly due to US policy decisions regarding economic mess it has created for itself
  • For now the crisis – Shutdown is averted by a deal between democrats and republicans in Washington. But how long? Any crisis, which arises in US, is crisis for rest of the world? Is there any way to downsize Uncle Sam?
