Manufacturing Capability Capacity and Decline over Decades
By Richard McPherson, Global Humanitarian Resources, Inc.
From the start of the Industrial Revolution until after World War II Americans led the way in building manufacturing capabilities, capacity and quickly responding to needs as demonstrated by our grandparents and parents response to World War I and World War II. Then slowly at first, America took longer and longer to respond to changing needs. As taxes and regulations increased, manufacturing slowed, and capabilities and capacity was in decline. Since 1979, I have read reports indicating our manufacturing was being lost to the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) never to return. Not so!
Energy and the American people are the key to a boom in manufacturing in the United States. Unlocking the door was the election of Donald Trump as President in November 2016. American technology including material science can rapidly advance.
The United States is blessed with the land, natural resources and people like no other nation on earth. What was once the best educational system in the world was emulated by other countries as ours was shifting from education to indoctrination by design over many decades. The American people are waking up and education is returning in the form of non-public schools. Indoctrination brought forth a new type of slavery through massive student debt now over $1.5 trillion and increasing daily, and a national debt of over $21.1 trillion plus unfunded liabilities over $113.5 trillion with both growing. Simple math of the annual median income of $31,951 with almost no disposable income after living expenses, those three debt amounts cannot be repaid. Until now.
Just the changes in public policy since Donald Trump became President have shifted the economy of America from being in decline to improving. Imagine what can be done when the United States Congress, Governors, state legislatures, county and city governments get behind using our lands, natural resources and educational systems to create the talent needed for advanced manufacturing, modern assembly processes, non-carbon, non-nitrogen emitting secure and reliable electricity, expanding our agriculture and forest products, along with mining, ranching and modernizing our infrastructure. All making a profit instead of sending money out of the country. Employing Americans instead of people in other countries. The federal government controls over 600 million acres that can be turned into economic production for Americans.
Richard McPherson after a career in the US Navy starting out on nuclear submarines, went worked in over 30-countries, plus was the U.S. Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency on “Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities, the Environment and Public Opinion” has turned his experience to the nexus of agriculture, water and energy for humanitarian needs starting in Idaho.
