Hey Telegraph, I'd be interested in your views on what govt can do to stimulate employment in manufacturing.From your libertarian perspective, I presume you think free markets should do it. So we should mostly be patient.You can easily understand govt favoring construction projects to stimulate employment. Roads and bridges have always been govt funded, and various groups lobby for those projects.Manufacturing is more difficult. If govt decides to build washing machines, Whirlpool, GE, and their unions would scream. So govt must work with opportunities where business needs help rather than strong industry leaders. That usually means new business lines like Solyndra or A123. They are high risk businesses because they depend on markets developing on the scale anticipated.There is always the Nazi approach. Contract to build military weapons.Do you prefer tax cuts and the old trickle down approach?Do you favor tariffs or barriers to imports?How would President Telegraph stimulate employment?
