Is Someone Deliberately Trying to Trash the US Economy?

If you think about that from a certain viewpoint, that's a dumb question.  "Someone" may not be trying to crash the US economy, but I don't see what would be different if they were trying.  That someone could be anyone from the current itself to Dr. Evil (George Soros) to any one of a number of other parties.  The Chinese PLA (People's Liberation Army) is said to be transitioning into the hands of younger officers; young men raised in the "one child" paradigm of China since the late 1970s.  These men are said to be less tolerant of the patient approach of watching the US implode that the elders tend to advocate.  Last year, PLA officers urged China to cut back on US bonds they hold to "teach us a lesson" for supporting Taiwan.

In an interesting article from the Washington Times, a Pentagon white paper was leaked, “Financial terrorism suspected in 2008 economic crash”.  The report does not conclude the crash of '08 was an act of economic terrorism, but does go over some interesting facts.  The author, Kevin Freeman, says,
“The new battle space is the economy,” he said. “We spend hundreds of billions of dollars on weapons systems each year. But a relatively small amount of money focused against our financial markets through leveraged derivatives or cyber efforts can result in trillions of dollars in losses. And, the perpetrators can remain undiscovered.
“This is the equivalent of box cutters on an airplane,”
The web is ablaze with all sorts of theories of who's pulling strings, who's organizing the inflation, how the New World Order will enslave us all.  It's hard to figure who could be right.  But when you have The Bernank himself spouting insanity as obvious as this, you have to wonder if he was trying to destroy the country what would he be doing differently? 
"Ben Bernanke says Federal Reserve policy is not responsible for the UN's Food Price Index now standing at its highest level in 21 years or gasoline costs rising 49% in six months."
So Ben will take credit for how the excess money he's flooded the world with might increase the prices on the stock market (as more dollars chase a fixed number of stocks) but won't allow the possibility of having caused food inflation (as more dollars chase a fixed amount of food).  What a maroon.  Gee, Ben, that's not what your central bank brothers say

The way I see it, there's a handful of things that need to happen to signal a collapse of the US economy.  Those are (in no particular order):
In other words, I think everything needed to ensure economic collapse of the US is here already.  Any shock to the system could cause it, or it could stay in its semi-stable state for a while.  If someone is trying to crash us, they will push when their pieces are ready.

  1. Oh, yeah, certain subversive groups are trying to tank our economy. Here's a list of suspects:

    - China
    - George Soros
    - Retiring Baby Boomers eager to collect Social Security and Medicare transfers from their juniors
    - Public Employee Unions

    I could go on. OK, I'm just kidding, the people/groups/countries on that list aren't really trying to bring down our economy, are they? At least not intentionally, eh?
