This has got to be the worst idea ever! How can President Obama believe that spending on robotics for the manufacturing sector can create jobs in the future?
As he discusses in his weekly address, the idea it to streamline to manufacturing process to allow America to get back what we do best. While building the robotics has the potential to create jobs now, it will be a permanent killer of jobs in the future. There is no two ways about it.
Already the surge in technology has provided lower costs for most sectors of our economy, helping to increase profits at the expense of human capital. This is just one more idea without any thought about the ramifications. Will someone please tell this administration that they have no idea what they are talking about! PLEASE!
