That's what the saps who voted for Trump on a false promise of returned prosperity don't understand. Really the saps who voted at all, heh. The USA built its prosperity on the ashes of Europe and Asia, and now it's all a big con to keep the rich man rich. Maybe science will save us, transform us, or maybe it will just fucking destroy us... it's the only hedge against the crushing force of accrued wealth that i can see, and it's no sure thing..
