    More and more likely at the current rate at which debt/spending is growing:
    Lower tax revenue
    Boomer retirement: Social security and medicaid
    Arms race with the rest of the world.

    What will happen is end of the dollar and US high living standards.

    Just look at those BIG BEAUTIFUL SOYBEANS,,, those are beauties, and we're selling a bunch of em to China,,,, they are round-up ready, which means overspray from nearby fields doesn't kill those beautiful beans in their formative state!

    Yep, those beans are obviously "stressed" you can tell by the yellowing and brown leaves, and the fact that the bean pods only have three beans in each pod,,, so do a little more digging to find a healthy soybean field...

    Healthy soybeans are a verdant and uniform green, and probably have four, maybe five beans in each "seed pod", and I should clarify that "round up ready" soybeans, allow you to use a herbicide to fight the grasses and other weeds that suck the life out of a field, anything in the field beside soybeans is sucking up nutrients from the soil, and complicating harvest by introducing green weeds that will "slug" your combine..

    Healthy Soybean fields in the US are covered by beautiful healthy soybeans that all mature at approximately the same time, and once those green plants die and begin to dry out, that's when the harvest occurs. The dead, dry soybean plants run right through the harvester and out the back, those beautiful clean beans end up pouring out the top of your "hopper", in fact almost all combines in the US have additional "fences" on the top of the hopper to accommodate an additional 50 or 100 bushels of beans in order to make it all the way around the field before having to "dump"..

    big farmers "dump" on the fly, driving a "grain buggy" beside the combine as he threshes the grain, dumping and never stopping the combine, when the hopper is full another "grain buggy" or even a "semi" pulls up beside the combine and the auger empties the hopper into that new "grain buggy"...

    its awesome to watch, and I like nothing more than picking a half dozen or so soybeans off the top of that new harvest and having a little snack, they are very clean, and very tasty! not as tasty as newly harvested wheat, which is quite delightful to eat as a snack... beautiful, just beautiful... That's the reason that folks want US beans, healthy, pretty, dried nicely to store well and minimize black rot and fungus..

    That's an extremely important factor when shipping beans in barges or ships, trust me, I know....

    Yes and no.
    Soy beans sprouts green but turns yellow and hardens as they mature. There are only three or four beans in a pod.
    The immature green ones are known these days as edamame.
