“Keeping the system going.”

born in the usa

For the longest, products that we purchased were made in the United States. But as time progressed and America became a more modern country, it became too expensive to make products in the U.S. So companies started to move overseas for their manufacturing operations and along with it went the jobs. Now my question to you all is, will we see another mass production of goods in this country again?

machinery over man

Whatever happened to the mule plow guy when the combine was invented? Ever wonder how his life panned out? Chances are, he didn’t last in business and had to sell off his land because he couldn’t survive. And that is the same thing here as it pertains to people working in factories. The use for manpower is irrelevant at this time in history. And it’s because technology is moving to scale at a higher point than man can keep up.

boy i love a deal

Don’t we all love going to a store and buying an item on sale marked down 25% off, 50% off, and even 75%. And the reason companies can do so is because of the excess of items that need to be gotten rid of to make room for new items. But coincidentally is a reason manufacturing in America is tough as well. We walk into a store and see the same item for different prices no one is buying the same item for different prices just because it’s American.

“WE used to build thing.”

american made

Throughout American history, we prided ourselves on reading labels that read, “Made in the U.S.A.” But now, with so many jobs being shipped overseas to China, we are leaving behind that great American Dream we once thought to be true. Why, well, it’s a lot cheaper to make goods in a foreign country rather than in America. Also, making products here is more difficult to compete globally.

going global

Do we need to go global with everything? And the answer is yes, we do. If you understand on industry is set up, you do. Meaning, people will say, make products in America, then run out and purchase a Toyota. Make it in America, then run out and buy a Samsung. And then we wonder why we can’t compete as a country. So what people say, and their actions are totally different.

Also, if we isolate ourselves, there are products that contain chemicals, herbs, and priceless metals that are not indigenous to the United States. So we couldn’t build anything because you’re talking about needing these priceless products for our innovation. Nothing is actually of this land that we need that we can do for ourselves.

a new beginning

In today’s society, we are more of a information based society than a hands on society. The internet has opened the door to a whole host of opportunities. Opportunities where the small guy can now be his own boss and work from home. You don’t need anyone telling what to work on, and when to work. But that is easier said than done because you have to build.

And the building means years of disappointment before reaching the end goal. That is a journey so many don’t want to take in life because of the degree of failure. But one thing is certain America is not, and can’t go back to the way things were in the past.
