Just Musing about which I observe - Dec 28, 2009

where is the American competitive spirit?It seems to have left town with most of the manufacturing ,it has gone offshore.

Mexico,China with many savvy guys from China eating up the American dream.I wanted some products but the guys who replied to my request where the business persons from China.Even my local chemical supplier has mostly Chinese goods.If you want to be in manufacturing you need to get off your butt ,become innovative.Take the offensive.to the competition before there are no manufacturing places left in North America.With everything whoosh out the door. Into the guys wallet who beat you at the game.Wake up China is knocking over the door.You'll be lucky to be the janitor sweeping up the crumbs left over from the contest

It is my end of year musing and observation.Nothing against the Chinese they are beating you fair and square.Quit giving it away without a fight.
Or are you just going to lay down and play dead? or is your fighting spirit rising to the top. Find niche markets do what the other guy is not doing.? regards Bill Toebes
