    For the use of complete charts across the relevant time periods actually being discussed.

    (If the time-and-data distorted wingnut chart was being used to sell -- oh, say a mortgage -- they would be charged with felony fraud.)

    Meanwhile, as to point 7, global competitiveness -- the reasons for this are well understood by all those involved in the studies:  Refusal of the US to invest in human capital. I just want to point out that there are 4 major government and privately contracted studies on this topic that have been published and circulated through Congress within the past six months. You can be sure you will never hear a word about them from Gov-Co or the media. The results are far more dismal and fixed with many more great powers in advance than your reference suggests.

    Indeed, it has already happened.

      Completely agree on the human capital point.
