Is the U.S. Losing Its Competitiveness?

Posted October 16, 2010 7:26 AM

A report by the World Economic Forum suggests that the U.S. is losing its competitiveness, now falling behind Switzerland, Sweden, and Singapore. Do you agree? Is the problem one of policy? Or is it about resources or education? Is there some other factor at work?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Glass, Ceramics, Fibers & Fabrics, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Glass, Ceramics, Fibers & Fabrics today.

With rising pay and benefit of staying home and returning after finishing education because company will hire and ship to India and China to develop low cost product is reason of shrinking pool of dreamer.

Now china has home made super computer which is as good as we have here. India has solar better than we have. India has software and call center as good as we have. Next generation development of call center and most of the software is expected to come out of India since they will have need to do this because of problem they are encountering globally which only we use to have.

We use to be nation of immigrant and most of the new technology brought by these educated and risk taker guy who was supported by our venture capital and culture of seeing, dreaming and making dream come true.

We got effected by 911 and best and bright now see good life in there country over coming here. Atomic scientist from Iran we paid $5,000,000 to migrate to US but he after leaving few year decided to go back since his name and country of origin was on his way to live in country of immigrant.

This also decreased good brain migration from Islamic world.

In summery with growth of China and India in Technology and learning curve and after effect of 911 sharp slow down migration from Islamic world is taking tall on our stay as world leader like in paste.

I hope our Federal government will do some thing to making immigration again for best and bright from China, India and Islamic world so that we can keep them behind us or we start working harder than before
