I'm actually not surprised by the very high number of "snakes in the grass" coming from the US. As I see it there are 2 big problems:
a) our entire economic system is based on getting as much as you can out of the 99 percenters (let's call them "99rs") who try to make a living and get by. This leads the big (and small) corporations to rape anyone they can, any way they can. They literally have millions of people dreaming up ways to charge the 99rs more for what they were getting just a few months ago. This leads to a moral decay as a good part of the 99rs has no choice but to devote their time to: either fighting the Big Ones, or to cheat their fellow 99rs. It's a vicious circle. The 99rs cant beat the Big Ones so more and more of their time is spent on the second alternative.
b) the second problem is that because of our open door immigration policy, we let in some of the most brilliant minds of the 21st Century. But most of them (I'm gessing over 80%) don't want to do menial work and channel their energies to creating systems that will try to cheat the Big Ones, so that they can jump into the 1%. When that doesn't work (and it usually can't), they re-channel their energies to screwing their fellow 99rs, as well as the rest of the world.
Thus either way, the 99rs can't win and are driven into an economic abyss. Welcome!
