Rural America Is On The Verge Of Collapse

Consumption

The Economic Innovation Group’s (EIG) Distressed Communities Index (DCI) shows a significant economic transformation (from two distinct periods: 2007-2011 and 2012-2016) that occurred since the financial crisis. The shift of human capital, job creation, and business formation to metropolitan areas reveals that rural America is teetering on the edge of collapse.

Since the crisis, the number of people living in prosperous zip codes expanded by 10.2 million, to a total of 86.5 million, an increase that was much greater than any other social class. Meanwhile, the number of Americans living in distressed zip codes decreased to 3.4 million, to a total of 50 million, the smallest shift of any other social class. This indicates that the geography of economic pain is in rural America.

“While the overall population in distressed zip codes declined, the number of rural Americans in that category increased by nearly 1 million between the two periods. Rural zip codes exhibited the most volatility and were by far the most likely to be downwardly mobile on the index, with 30 percent dropping into a lower quintile of prosperity—nearly twice the proportion of urban zip codes that fell into a lower quintile. Meanwhile, suburban communities registered the greatest stability, with 61 percent remaining in the same quintile over both periods. Urban zip codes were the most robust—least likely to decline and more likely than their suburban counterparts to rise,” the report said.

Visualizing the collapse: Economic distress was mostly centered in the Southeast, Rust Belt, and South Central. In Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and West Virginia, at least one-third of the population were located in distressed zip codes.

Prosperous zip codes were the top beneficiaries of the jobs recovery since the financial crisis. All zip codes saw job declines during the recession, each laying off several million jobs from 2007 to 2010. But by 2016, prosperous zip codes had 3.6 million jobs surplus over 2007 levels, which was more than the bottom 80% of distressed zip codes combined. It took five years for prosperous zip codes to replace all jobs lost from the financial crisis; meanwhile, distressed zip codes will never recover.

EIG shows that less than 25% of all counties have recovered from business closures from the recession.

“US business formation has been dismal in both magnitude and distribution since the Great Recession. The country’s population is almost evenly split between counties that have fully replaced (with 161 million residents) and those that have not (with 157.4 million). This divide is due to the fact that highly populous counties—those with more than 500,000 residents—were far more likely to add businesses above and beyond 2007 levels than their smaller peers. Nearly three in every five large counties added businesses on net over the period, compared to only one in every five small one,” the report said.

To highlight the weak recovery and geographic unevenness of new business formation, EIG shows that the entire country had 52,800 more business establishments in 2016 than it did in 2007.

Five counties (Los Angeles, CA; Brooklyn, NY; Harris, TX (Houston); Queens, NY; and Miami-Dade, FL. ) had a combined 55,500 more businesses in 2016 than before the recession. Without those five counties, the US economy would not have recovered.

On top of deep structural changes in rural America, JPMorgan told clients last week that the entire agriculture complex is on the verge of disaster, with farmers in rural America caught in the crossfire of an escalating trade war.

“Overall, this is a perfect storm for US farmers,” JPMorgan analyst Ann Duignan warned investors.

Farmers are facing tremendous headwinds, including a worsening trade war, collapsing soybean exports to China, global oversupply conditions, and crop yield losses in the Midwest due to flooding. This all comes at a time when farmers are defaulting and missing payments at alarming rates, forcing regional banks to restructure and refinance existing loans.

Today’s downturn of rural America is no different than what happened in the 1920s, 1930s, and the early 1980s.

    Another bullshit exaggerated article from a corrupted academia. Rural America covers a vast area and to micro analyze it is just typical low IQ work of think tanks that are missing reality. Rural America is a 1st world and third world arrangement. It always has been here in the US. Rural America is very diverse depending on regions. If these dumbasses would look hard enough they would see that the urban areas also have poor people. They might also see that these rich urban and suburban areas dwell around rural America. Rural American has pockets of wealth and pockets of poor. The rich urban areas support rural areas because people in rural areas commute to the richer urban areas to work. This is more shit by the liberal establishment in its effort to hype the deplorable saga. This is also about a different culture of the rich privileged of the urban areas and the poor who gravitate to the rural areas where cost of living is much lower. These poor people are well adapted to a low income life. It is about the power of privilege and the centralization of economic power in a wealth transfer that has been occurring since the 08 financial crisis.

    The game of chicken that is Brexit. The sport is to call the bluff of the Brexiteers. Brussels is not gojng to cave in. They will laugh ranting Farage in his face and say: “what are you still doing here? Go then!, but don’t tell us you haven’t been warned!”… and let the Brexiteers walk away.

    I live in northern Minnesota and like to motorcycle through North Dakota. Basically, I”m interested in the changes the modern world has brought to farming. I travel through ghost or semi ghost towns. I remember a small town café with old time pictures on the wall. One was of a large old time threshing machine with several workers standing around it. Now, with modern equipment, those men are gone, houses empty and stores closed. I pass an occasional farm with huge equipment, maybe a semi and I know that guy has big payments pressuring him all the time. I know he can’t have a bad yr. I am seeing changes that are overwhelming us all. World wide a million rural people a week are moving to urban areas. This is global. It’s not those damn liberals, of which the US hasn’t any, but change. Most, if not all, have fear in our gut. We just don’t want to know it.

    “Moderate Tory MPs will help bring down an ‘extremist’ PM pursuing no-deal Brexit, predicts John McDonnell”

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/no-deal-brexit-conservative-prime-minister-labour-tory-mp-john-mcdonnell-a8929936.html

    The departure of pm May has changed nothing.
    The only thing Westminster could agree upon was the rejection of a no-deal Brexit. If BoJo will become pm and does what he says, namely taking the UK out of the EU, if necessary without a deal, he will face a vote of no-confidence and there will be sufficient Tories voting against BoJo, prompting a general election. If Labour would win, the desired soft-Brexit would finally be in reach. This is a likely scenario, but no guarantees.

    “You Think Europe Has an Immigration Problem? Look at the US”

    “Can we have a quick reality check and acknowledge that what is happening to America is a million times worse than what’s happening in Europe and is of much greater consequence?”

    Indeed, thanks to Italy and the Balkans the influx is now virtually zero and real grass roots defense is rapidly building up.

    In Eastern Europe non-whites can hardly go over street without running the risk of being beaten up.

    Europe is safe, but in the US, people like mobster and empire dave are still at large and seriously run the risk of being targetted by desperate Heartlanders, the article is refering to.

    It is our duty as Europeans to use our stronger identitarian reserves and come to the aid of our beleaguered people like Ann Coulter.

    then muzzie lover dhimi May (pbuh) resigned and that’s good. how can someone named after (((supertard saint teresa of spain))) (pbuh) can stray so far in her love of muzzies? we never know.

    in other news asia bibi (pbuh) is safe somewhere in canada. it’s all good. like a commenter said

    Rural towns are dying all over the world, that’s not an american phenomena.

    Automation and large food processing plants replacing small local plants combined with cheap transport made it happen.

    -Comfortable
    -Mod-tier
    -At Risk

    “Today’s downturn of rural America is no different than what happened in the 1920s, 1930s, and the early 1980s.”

    Not true! It is almost 100 years later and totally different conditions apply. In 1920 most farms were family owned, didn’t rely on government subsidies and were not manipulated by the government. Today’s farms are mostly big business, corporate owned, government regulated and subsidized. Then along comes TRUMP. Game over.

    Throw in the huge debt most family farms have (the cost of a new tractor can be in the six digits), climate changing (weird weather) and now tariffs and you get a situation that cannot go on much longer. TRUMP is killing his supporters and bleeding the taxpayers to subsidize (just as China does) the farm industry. If you live in the US, you are paying for your food at least twice. Once in the grocery store and then at tax time. Ouch!

    “Continued population and/or income increase have pushed the United States, China, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom up the list of the Countries Who Import the Most Food…The United States, being one of the world’s largest economies, imports a total of $133 billion USD worth of food and food products, followed by China at $105.26 billion USD, Germany at $98.90 billion USD, Japan at $68.86 billion USD, the United Kingdom at $66.54 billion USD, the Netherlands at $64.38 billion USD, France at $62.29 billion USD, Italy at $51.34 billion USD, Belgium at $40.87 billion USD, and the Russian Federation at $38.60 billion USD.” Keep in mind that China’s population is 4 times that of the US but imports 20% less.

    https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-countries-importing-the-most-food-in-the-world.html

    Food security is a joke in the West. Most Western countries import a large chunk of their food. Ditto for the ME. As the climates change, so will the ability to grow food. The melting of the Arctic Ocean has created am erratic Jet Stream, unleashing wild weather in the US and Europe. Not good for farmers. Today:

    https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/250hPa/orthographic=-100.73,24.44,425

    Can YOU live without the grocery store? Or an income? Think and prepare. Time is getting short.

    American, self isolating itself one country at a time.

    “Just like the empty threats against Chinese state oil companies for buying Iranian oil, the US knows there is a limit to who and what they can sanction without collapsing the world economy.

    Lastly, never underestimate the long-term effect here on the US and the further use of the dollar. Right now, the dollar is the major game in town. It’s vital to the survival of a lot of companies and banks, but it is also, ultimately, replaceable in the kinds of businesses under the threat of sanctions here.

    Everywhere you look Trump is lashing out at whoever he thinks he can gain leverage over to force concessions for US interests. But all he is doing is making it clear to everyone that the dollar now carries unacceptable political risk to carry on their company’s balance sheet.

    And it will only further lower the barrier both economically and politically to shift away from using it leaving the US ever more isolated. And the fact that this is happening over such a small thing like a pipeline and a failed state like Ukraine makes everyone involved look desperate and pathetic.”

    Isolating America: “… in resorting to tried-and-true imperialism, it is isolating itself internationally from traditional allies and raising tensions on the global chessboard to an unprecedented level…. Economic measures involving tariffs or duties, in many ways comparable to declarations of war, are now habitual, whether directed at friends or allies…. This is essentially the motivation behind European countries seeking to diversify their international trade and exchanges through a currency not controlled by Washington, thereby effectively de-dollarizing their economies.”

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/shielding-the-world-from-us-chaos-no-easy-task-a-multipolar-world-in-the-making/5678440

    “As if Africa and the world need to be reminded, it was European colonialism that robbed Africa of people and resources for hundreds of years….“The U.S. is no longer an economic superpower; it can only intervene decisively in global affairs by force of arms and military intimidation.”…They have now weaponized the dollar through sanctions against everyone that disobeys U.S. foreign policy dictates, including putative U.S. allies. If, in the end, bullies and abusers have no friends, then we are close to the end of U.S. imperialism.”

    Davy, you don’t like the message so you try to putdown the messenger. ZH is a collection of articles from many sources just as is Ricefarmer and others.

    Davy, I reply to posts that resemble the style used by that poster. If you have a problem with others posting in your name, too bad. Not my problem. If it sounds like you, I reply as if it is you. The use of immature, arrogant putdowns is typical Davy. Nuff said.

    Go, you are correct. Tourist spots are artificially designed to give the tourist a “feel” for the country. A Disney version, not the real people, places and lifestyles. Not one in 1,000 ever get off the tourist track.

    I can visit most places on the planet by going to Google Earth Pro and dropping the little man down on the indicated streets. Most of the views are only a few years old. You could even walk the streets where I live, if you knew where. Davy thinks he knows but follows false herrings. lol

    Makato, you are a stupid fuck or you play along with juanpee. I don’t have a problem with you, juanpee, and annoy. You guys have been beaten and all you can do is attack me. These mindless attacks from you guys just show how low IQ you 3 are. When is the last time juanpee or anonymouse had and intelligent comment and you love these guys as best friends. I told your dumbass to ignore me and I will ignore you. That was not good enough for you. I attempt to ignore you lately because your message is so boring and redundant. I mean come on for 5 years now you have been dumping anti-American extremism here. Daily the same copy and paste shit. None of your predictions have amounted to anything. Tell us about the Bric Bank and the gold back yuan. The US is still up and running despite your bullshit predictions. You cheerleading all sorts of calamities is just more of your rabid obsessions. Anyone you don’t like is considered an American. Just like yesterday with yellowcanoe. He is from Canada not the US. Same stupid makato shit from a washed up old man waiting to die in the third world far away from family.
