The first obstacle to growth is the sheer insanity of politics in Washington today. Neither side is taking on the real issues facing this economy and the market for workable solutions is virtually empty. This country needs to work toward balanced trade and it requires a federal mandate to accomplish the task. The free market was already asked politely to keep jobs and production here – it simply accelerated outsourcing. This country needs strong domestic procurement laws for all government spending. If the government is going to put steel reinforcements in the pavement as it refurbishes crumbling highways, that steel must be made in America by American workers and an American-owned company.
