That’s what it was. Hollow, cheap bromides.
Obama’s insight? ‘Out innovate competitors’ isn’t just meaningless. Innovation isn’t the American problem. It’s that once the R&D is done, the scale up to manufacturing is taken offshore. Not just because it’s cheaper. We’ve lost the entire network of infrastructure expertise necessary to proceed to scale manufacturing in electronics, tech and future industries such as new batteries and solar. And so on for his other shout outs. Empty.
Did we miss anything?
