Trust .The world runs on it .Some may argue and say it’s money or credit or information but they’d be only partially right because these are just constructs based on trust; inventions of our instinctive and collective need to work together to achieve common goals like finding food or establishing a secure perimeter around the place we sleep.
Maybe you’ve heard the rumors? The ones that say manufacturing in the U.S. is dead. That
we’ve ceded this once vaunted and robust capability to the Chinese. That we are now an economy of service providers wondering if you want fries with that?
What’s going to happen and when are always sticky questions fraught with pitfalls
and unforeseen events and circumstances that render most predictions useless at best and
sometimes even dangerous -- “World’s going to end in 2012 anyway, no sense getting that
lump checked out .” But we have to make predictions in order to make decisions .You can’t wait until after the fact to say, “Okay, let’s do that .” Life doesn’t work that way.
