Fukushima prefecture has been conducting regular checkups of over 360,000 people who were in Fukushima in March 2011 and were age 18 or under when the nuclear crisis struck. As WSJ reported in August, a study by researchers in Fukushima prefecture found 57 minors in the prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer so far and another 46 are showing symptoms that suggest they may also have the disease. Today, as The Japan Times reports, four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey bringing the total to 107 out of 385,000 now surveyed. This is dramatically higher than the normal “between 5 to 11 cases per million people,” that Okayama University professor Toshihide Tsuda cites for national statistics between 1975 and 2008.

The Marine’s Hymn begins “From the Halls of Montezuma, To the shores of Tripoli.” Yet most people have no idea what Tripoli in Libya has to do with the Marines. American sailors were no longer under British protection after the Revolution and were being captured and sold into slavery by North African pirates from Tripoli. In 1785, pirates from Algiers captured an entire crew from an American merchant ship off the coast of Portugal.
Quoted from Armstrong Economics
Now there’s a historical twist we don’t often hear, that North African pirates made slaves of white American sailors after the American Revolution.
China is rapidly approaching ZERO growth. This is not less growth, but
ZERO growth as in full-scale economic collapse from the days of 12% GDP growth
Chinese growth numbers are manufactured by the Chinese government and have no basis in truth. Over 99% of “analysts” are missing this, but it is a fact.
If that happens, could it mean a resurgence of manufacturing in the USA as Chinese enterprises collapse or quality of manufactured goods plummet due to system collapse?
MADE IN AMERICA could help bring back the national pride we lost when we sent all our jobs overseas. The environment in the US is ripe for resurgence of American manufacturing. Globally, the US is competitive again. Our falling dollar makes our goods and services cheap to international customers.
Wages are low. Energy costs are low. The cost of money is low. In business school they teach that you only need two out of three of those factors for financial viability. Right now America has all three working for it. It’s time to bring manufacturing home.
