There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says, fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. Fool me -- you can't get fooled again. - George W. Bush, September 17, 2002

Could we have a show of hands? Who is bullish on United States manufacturing over the next 10 years? Feel free to factor China and Europe into your analysis.

This is not investment advice.

Interestingly, every unit of increase in manufacturing seems to result in a corresponding 10x increase for the stock market.
