We need to build products that we need at home and can export to bring our trade imbalance down. Also building infrastructure is a great way to increase the productivity of our country and create higher wage jobs that will give these people more income to spend into the economy. It is not realistic to think that we can outsource most of our manufacturing and be a real world economic power. Consumption is not the end all. .02

Our government should direct substantial resources to create demand and expand solar production as well as for other green technologies. The current economic crisis is stifling a good chunk of private investment interest. It is rather unlikely private investment will sustain a robust shift to green energy solutions at this juncture.

JustMeans is very well designed, informative, refreshing and the most important easy to use, the best usability. Many of us interested in this sector do exchange our thoughts here and also I would like you to see on JustMeans very soon.
