Invest in companies that export products and services, not jobs!

February 1, 2010

What I am telling you here is not taught in any university department of economics, political science, sociology or psychology. My teaching is part of my attempt to train a generation of ‘out-of-the-box’ behavioral economists. In my chapter on Americanism, it is a sine qua non that only the United States can come up with super-major innovations that affect life on this planet. It had in the past, and there are no signs that other cultures can become as free to innovate as the American culture. Having said that, I must also tell you that we are exporting more American jobs than American products! Why? There are 2 reasons: The world, lacking innovative skills that come from great freedoms, has adopted a new skill called “Imitating.” That is the way monkeys survive, and that is the way China and India thrive. The poorly designed Datsun of 1959, has become the superior Toyota of 2009. And, Americans are naive, and they elect naïve leaders that do not trade American ‘know how’ in exchange for other countries opening their markets to American goods. No bureaucrat in China who can get free American ‘know how’ will allow the sale of American products in China. Why should he undermine Chinese economy when he can “Imitate” the American product and sell it in a Wal-Mart in Los Angeles? The solution: American voters, “Elect smarter representatives, or lose your job. How? Start by searching Google for blogs like this one! That will bring out better blogs out of the ‘woodwork.’ A million blogs like this one and the old representative will stop running for re-election! Bingo. You win you job back! America stays great! 🙂

    As much as I can understand right now, I think you’re right!
