I sat down with a group of executives today from one of the nation's largest banks (Geo - ears burning?) and heard their side of the story. .......
So, we bet on energy, because the infrastructure must be overhauled, and the winds of change are blowing across the energy landscape in America and that's a bright spot at least. And pharmaceuticals too, since everyone needs more drugs! However, that will only last until India or China get their act together.
Oh, that WAS you I saw in the Main Conference Room. I recognized you from your icon, funny hat... bushy hair.... nice LP. I was the guy in the white waiters coat getting all of you coffee and cigars.
I agree energy technology, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology are our future now. Too a much lesser degree communications and computer technologies, as we have given that know how away to China a few years ago through IBM and Sun Microsystems. Our timeframe is limited to make the change's necessary for us. The only saving grace is that China is on a relatively slow but methodical road to growth.
Its sad. From the industrial giant we once were to this..... good thing my father is not alive to see these days, he was from the WWII generation.
