Oil Boom

You know how I once said that oil companies are raping the United States, and that we Americans are totally asking for it. It seems that there is a bonus to all this economic abuse, and it is in our jobs. Assuming that you are like me and employed in the manufacturing arts, this oil boom is the best thing ever. Once you have found the science, the calculus of globalization no longer pays off. Do you think that it is painful to fill up your car now? Try paying to ship a container across the globe, a price well into the thousands of dollars. Once you swallow the numbers, it is becoming less efficient to manufacture overseas in Asia. These coming years and decades will see a resurgence of manufacturing in the United States or at least the Americas.
