"Rich businesspeople like me don 't create jobs. Rather, they are a consequence of an ecosystemic feedback loop animated by middle-class consumers---When the middle class thrives; businesses grow and hire, and owners profit.” (Quoted in the words of Hanauer, 2012). In “INTERNATIONAL: 'New ' middle class fuels global growth” also believes that the global middle class is the prime market for consumer goods from cars and smart phones to bottled water, wine and scotch. Which is true, our middle class is the leading class believe it or not and we them to help improve our democratic country before it gets too out of hand.

Consumerism began as a purposeful way of producing more and more stuff for America’s biggest businessmen. This concept alongside strategic promotion proved successful in changing American culture from working to live to living to work. Which has caused corporate greed, monopolies, irreversible global warming, family dynamic disruptions and even more issues. It may not appear to be going anywhere, but starvation will make the decision for the world, if no one finds a better way to serve a growing population.

Porter’s five forces model To analyse the microenvironment facing United Biscuits in China, Porter’s five forces model is selected to provide an understanding of the competitive forces, to determine the competitive position of the company and profitability within the biscuit industry whilst offering a framework for predicting and inﬂuencing competition over time (Porter, 2008, p.80). The findings are explained below: Threat of new entrants • The high capital cost required for investing in developing distribution, sales network and acquiring production equipment could deter new entrants. The barriers are high when capital is necessary for unrecoverable expenditures such as marketing and product development capability which is difficult for new entrants to succeed in the short-term (Euromonitor, 2014; Porter, 2008, p.81). • In China, government regulation and policies regarding food products are very strict due to various food safety scandals in recent years.

If and when AMERICA 3 American supremacy falloffs, then the countries America has supported will fall off. Or they might collapse altogether and transition to another kind of
