Re: US Commercial Shipping Industry has Collapsed - EXPORTS Controlled by the US are DEAD
US ports are too shallow and poorly dredged for the largest post Panamax cargo ships and while Maersk and Evergreen and Cosco "want" to dock here, but they can't - at last until our port authorities put some money into major dredging.

Now ask yourself - who did we sell so many of our ports off too?

uh huh...

Before we gave away the farm, we built a liberty ship in 4 days during WWII. Yes we build ships.

Sometimes its cheaper for China to do a bunch of runs then leave the vessel here, build a new one. I watched a documentary on this a few years ago. USA sandblasts their ships, send them back out to sea
They have us completely surrounded...those poor bastards

This is a very big deal.

At the beginning of 2023 China had 1,749 large Ocean going Commercial Vessels under construction.

The United States had 5.

Is this building back better?

Or Building nothing, and destorying everything!??!!?!?!?!

The big problem is who can afford to pay for ships built in the US? Taiwan or S Korea can build ships for about 25% of what they cost in the US.
A recent US navy ship came out of drydock recently and nearly sunk when it rolled down the ways and got into the water.
Last I heard, the navy still has severe problems with it.

The US has only a fraction of the shipyards they once had. Most of the shipyards which are left primarily prrform maintenance and no longer build ships.

the impetus for economic growth is buying instant landfill garbage from amazon, harvesting your neuralink data to commodify every aspect of "your" life, buying and selling poorly made homes in an artificial debt based bubble and outright theft at the end with property taxes, a generation more interested in make-up tutorials and spewing trash on youtube instead of manufacturing.

when the rug pull comes americans are going to be blindsided by how fast they realize how truly poor they are. the entire sham of a country is built on the petrodollar and the foundations have cracked in recent years while the boobus americanus is fixated on the stupor bowl and the latest satanic half time show.

Fuck 'economic growth'. The economic system is essentially a slave system of perpetual consumption without regard to the consequences. The sooner it's, replaced the better. Unfortunately humanity is deeply mentally ill so it has to collapse first.
