Forbes Asia;1/29/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p12
This article criticizes the U.S. policymakers for projecting a gloomy economy and future for the country. The author asserts that the country is the world's biggest producer, exporter, seller, saver and innovator. Despite dire fiscal predictions, the federal budget is on a trend that could find a balance at the end of the decade, with a debt-to-GDP ratio well-below the Clinton Administration's average. How sweeping free trade may be favorable to the United States is explained.
