Downturn pushes more Americans to food banks

Still feel that New Zealand is an independent little Nation which has aeconomy not dependent on America’s fortune and willingness to consume more than any other people on earth? According to the Hamilton and Auckland foodbanks the people who need food is on the rise in NZ too.
With an artificially created international housing bubble by the international banking cartel of which John Key is very much a part off on the brink of collapse New Zealand will very much feel the pain. Who will suffer most? Hint: not John Key and his ilk.

This an article from stuff.co.nz.

It starts like this: In the richest nation on earth, a rising number of people line up for free food because they are struggling to put meals on the table at home.

And this is why Kiwi’s don’t get how incredibly serious America’s collapse is: This news paper still calls the US the richest Nation on Earth. Perhaps they tell the NZ readers this to allow them to believe that America’s problem can be solved with some sensible wealth redistribution but the problem is far deeper and more troublesome.
