The primary increase in American domestic production has been of poor people. The poor do not buy much. So it is no surprise that demand for products is down.

Certainly demand for opulent goods is up, but then only 10% of the population even considers buying them these days. America is becoming the market of the past as well as the military power of the past. Countries which see median family incomes drop year after year simply become that way, jingoism or not.
