Jobs and joblessness are a major problem for our industry. If our young don't have jobs, we can't sell them starter housing.
If the owner of starter housing can't sell it, we can't sell them upgraded housing.
If the owner of upgraded housing can't sell it we can't sell them retirement housing.
What is my point? ABC News has had a campaign for several months making people aware of how many things are imported, ofte from predatory trading partners, and emphasizing how many new jobs could be created if we turned this around.
I remember when products proudly carried a "Made in the U.S.A." label, prominently displayed. How nice it would be if manufacturers did that again.
