  • How Barack Obama Can Bring Manufacturing Jobs Back To America [View article]
    Great stuff. Please see my comment to Carine above. If you have more data on Shapeways contribution to job creation, that would be great.

    Any insights on other 3D printing companies creating jobs in USA?

    Carnie - Thanks for your comment.

    It was started in the Netherlands which I think speaks volumes. Great that you are setting up in the USA and leading the job creation revolution in manufacturing that America needs very badly. Keep up the great work. It would be great to get your perspective on how scaleable the job creation is and what you believe the time frame is for true manufacturing and not trinket making as Soleprop mentions above.

    It is early in this game. Every few months the range of materials expands. The printers are getting cheaper by an order of magnitude ever 24 months. Do not look at today (even though it is better today than 12 months ago). Try to look out a few years.

    They are on a dramatic improvement curve. I see them and see the curve. I also see the products. I suggest you read the Objet blog which is pretty interesting. http://blog.objet.com

    Interesting. Do you have a source and chart for this data? It intuitively makes some sense to me on a relative basis but not on an absolute basis.

    I would make the same recommendation to Romney and Gingrich or to anyone else Like Mike Bloomberg who would decide to run. The person is not important. The leapfrog thinking is.

    Tommy - You are right on the growth of food stamps and government and structurally unemployed. What do you suggest to do about it?

  • With his eyes on a second term, President Obama is due to give his State of the Union address tonight, when he will reportedly push for tax breaks for insourcing manufacturing, help for the troubled mortgage market, and incentives for alternative-energy development. He is also likely to again call for tax hikes for the rich.  [View news story]
    Instead of insourcing manufacturing, try innovating with 3D printing http://seekingalpha.co...

  • Goldman Sachs suggests the proposed EU oil embargo of Iran will amount to just a giant swap with China, with Europe getting more oil from Saudi Arabia and China increasing its buys from Iran. China will emerge the winner as it can demand a discounted price from Iran, allowing it to top off its strategic reserve on the cheap.  [View news story]
    I think Goldman Sachs has nailed this analysis. The Chinese are the big winner on Iran no matter how you slice it.

    20 years is a long way into the future. indeed hard to predict but I bet a lot of people felt that Merrill Lynch would still be around as well.

    big secular shift from people in kentucky calling you to ask you survey questions and focus groups in fancy conference rooms to online surveys and panels. These are big businesses and they are all moving online.
