USA Drops Out of Top Ten Prosperous Nations

“I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19)


Another report shows that the USA is in decline:

The U.S. slid from the top ten most prosperous nations for the first time in a league table which ranked three Scandinavian nations the best for wealth and wellbeing.

The U.S. fell to 12th position from 10th in the Legatum Institute’s annual prosperity index amid increased doubts about the health of its economy and ability of politicians. Norway, Denmark and Sweden were declared the most prosperous in the index, published in London today.

With the presidential election just a week away, the research group said the standing of the U.S. economy has deteriorated to beneath that of 19 rivals. The report also showed that respect for the government has fallen, fewer Americans perceive working hard gets you ahead, while companies face higher startup costs and the export of high-technology products is dropping.

FWIW, I would say that the USA is in a worse position than the above report suggests.  Although, that last point that less Americans perceive that working hard gets people ahead (though most still do), is pointing to a real danger in the USA–a danger that has accelerated the past several years because of governmental regulations and real and proposed tax policies.

Now, on the one hand, the USA has the resources to cut its trade deficits by getting more serious about the use of coal, nuclear power, oil production, shale, natural gas etc., on the other hand, it shackles itself to barely taken advantage of that.  But if it did, it carnally-speaking, has a chance to change its position more positively (Norway, for example, owes part of its ranking because of its oil and nuclear energy supplies.)

But the reason that I feel that the USA is in worse shape than the study suggests is that because of its currency being the world’s reserve currency and its massive debts, this has masked much of the economic decline in the USA.  If the time comes that the USA has to pay in real terms, with its declining dollar, what it is really worth (as opposed to how it is currently being propped up by other nations), those who live in the USA will be shocked at how fast their standard of living will decline.

And spiritually speaking, because the Anglo-nations, based upon my understanding of biblical prophecy, will suffer first from the aspects of the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), which is also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).  The increase acceptance of non-biblical morality will not be able to go on indefinitely–and it is partially because of this immorality attitude by so many in the USA that it tolerates the increases of debt, QE3, and other forms of debasement to its currency.

The economic, debt, and moral situations in the USA are serious. None of them can continue indefinitely and will end in ways that most Americans really do not believe is possible.

And even though some in the world are starting to notice this, the time will come when the creditors of the USA will rise up quickly and the USA will be taken over (Habakkuk 2:6-8).
