Economic crisis in the US

The classic speculative bubble of high-tech industries has burst in the year 2000. Another golden age of capitalism came to an end contrary to over-optimistic forecasts in the Clinton-era. In reality, the collapse was inevitable and it is easy to recognise that the previous boom of the 1990s was not that remarkable either. Real wages or free time had declined, families have faced disintegration, increasing crime and a widening gap between rich and pore behind the growing GDP.
