As for the American comment Ill just chalk that up to the inferiority complex so many young people have these days. Most cannot even grasp their own issues so they blame "the big bad wolf" instead of owning up to there own short falls.
Do you believe that the US has no part in shaping international trading to ensure that it maintains an advantage? To discuss the market is to discuss an invisable and unidentifiable force, but in many instances the US is the "market" you refer to and actively shapes the economic context around us. That is not to say that the US is at fault in this specific case, but I do not believe that we can or should speak of the US and "the market" as separate entities that operate according to different principles and with different aims - often, perhaps too often, they are one and the same.
