one of the biggest misconceptions by most americans is that america doesn’t produce anything anymore. WRONG! america actually ranks second among all countries when it comes to manufacturing goods for export (china being first of course). AND america’s manufacturing output is actually better than what it has done since the 70’s. BUT, the workforce did not grow at the same pace. WHY? automation. and with continuous advances in Artificial Intelligence, look to a future where even white-collar jobs will now be taken over by computers/robots/machines.
