Such as the credit crunch/ recession, racism, disability and unemployment?

Buddhism doesn't want forced followers, it's one of the things I most admire about it.

Aargh, the pain. We have 'free will." Do as you please. In the USA or the UK, no one follows anything by force. Ask Henry VIII.

One of the biggest truths in Buddhism is the fact that everyone must follow his own path. I believe that if anyone is FORCED to become a Buddhist, then the teachings is contrary to Buddhist principles.

Erm, from what little I understand, saying "you have to follow" is against just about everything Buddhism stands for.
Besides, I can't stand Budweiser, I'm more of a Stella man.
