Details of that trip and other international adventures after a layoff at: www.BetterTimesAheadAprilFool.com
To give Americans a sense of the vast changes that have happened in the country that poses the greatest technical challenge to American leadership, I signed up with the National Hispanic Professionals for a trip to China this October - 30 years from my FIRST Trip to China in 1982. How does the USA stack up against China in 2012?
My first trip to China in 1982 was when I was with a Fortune 500 company. This time it is with my own small company, which is a thriving green+security company, Armor Glass (www.ArmorGlass.com). It is thriving under Obama's leadership because he has promoted energy efficiency and renewable energy. We are doing very well when old industries struggle -- and we AREN'T even doing any work with the government!
Armor Glass is a sample of the new green economy that could generate tens of thousands if not millions of jobs, while SAVING our country BILLIONS in energy costs.
Upon return, I plan to compare the old China you read about in"Better Times Ahead" with present China, including a ride on the world's first "Maglev" train - its electropmagnets HOVER above the bed, making it possible to safety exceed 200 miles per hour!
After that trip, I will be publishing an opinion based on experience in nearly 50 countries on where the USA ranks against its main competitor in this global, space age 21st Century...
