Comments on: America as an export nation? Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: BrianHatano Mon, 02 Aug 2010 06:50:36 +0000 Very interesting perspective. Definitely deserves valuable consideration, especially for politicians, educators, and business owners and strategists. As an exporter of services, I think this is more than just a potentially profitable move over the short-run. I think it’s a necessary long-term strategic move to make American business more globally competitive. It would force professionals and company systems to raise their level of performance.
It could also benefit American wealth by educating investors more in global economics.
It could benefit other nations by putting the resources and support of the wealthiest nation into growing economies.
Definitely a challenging shift, but perhaps one that needs to be made?

2)American corporate greed and inability of American industry to evolve in a changing global environment will continue to drag down exports.

The challenges are obvious, but the answers are not.

Sorry, but the article started the way it carried on: no added value. I’m afraid I agree with yr2009: academic drivel.

We need less importing and more local production and agriculture to lower oil and transportation costs. This century is when we face the task of learning to live within the means of our planet without the population growth ponzi scheme. If we can’t do it we will be the cause of our own extinction..

1. Local wages go down
2. Local consumption decreases
3. The Dollar loses value
4. Small businesses regain access to credit for industrial equipment
5. Wages in China, India and other foreign markets increase substantially
6. Local consumption in those markets as well as in the EU increases

What I read in this article, as well as the administration’s ‘plan’ sounds to me like pseudo erudite, politically oriented claptrap.
