Exporting, We Hope
I found this article to bring a little possibility of more hope for the economy. We hope that we can do more exporting. I found this article in the Economist. In it we learn that if we are going to increase new exports, it will be coming from new firms. There are some companies that do quite a bit of exporting, like Intel, but we will need a whole lot more if we are going to export enough to really make a difference. It will be harder to have new emerging companies to do more exporting because they need more capital which is harder to come by. We also have this new health care bill that will make it harder for new companies to the point where they are effective. Time will tell.
