In other words, and these are only hints and suggestions at this point, does Tony Stark--like Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy and James Bond in Skyfall--symbolize the American economy that has been "replaced" by an enemy dressed to look "American" but is, in fact, communism? Stark's "fall from grace" is more than the typical spiritual fall and conversion we are used to in all artistic mediums, but Stark's fall (like the many falls it looks Bond will take in Skyfall) is an economic collapse. Because a man's body usually symbolizes the economy (because of his active nature) Tony Stark pulling a dog sled at the end of the trailer reveals how slowed-down "economic growth" has become in America while Pepper, obviously being taken as a hostage, symbolizes the future of America "trapped" and being held against her will,... now, where on earth did they come up with this storyline? It can't be an accident that, of all the days and times this trailer was released (I thoroughly expected it to not be released until Skyfall, as one of those opening trailers, another reason to drive people to go see it), why was it released just hours after the final presidential campaign debates?

Solyndra, Solar Trust Of America and Solar Power (among a long list of other billion dollar failures), but private enterprise is better at taking risks because it's better at judging the market and knowing what people want, instead of forcing people to start buying what it has invested in; whereas capitalists usually enter on joint ventures to minimize investment risks, the government just throws money at something. These are embedded economic issues we will see being played out for us in Iron Man 3 and I can't wait! (Please recall in The Avengers that Stark had invested in green energy to run Stark Industries and that was turned against America and used by Loki, likewise, in The Dark Knight Rises, Wayne's fusion energy was turned against all Gotham).
