Creating American Jobs?

An article written by Andy Grove, of Intel notoriety...

How to Make an American Job Before It's Too Late: Andy Grove - Bloomberg

Grove argues for an equal focus on manufacturing as well as "start-ups".

Quote:
You could say, as many do, that shipping jobs overseas is no big deal because the high-value work -- and much of the profits -- remain in the U.S. That may well be so. But what kind of a society are we going to have if it consists of highly paid people doing high-value-added work -- and masses of unemployed?
