"... GET BACK TO MAKE THINGS"... seems a good advice but is unrealistic. The days that USA had unlimited amounts of cheap oil & gas are gone. Without these huge volumes of cheap energy, it simply is impossible to make things on an industrial scale and stay an important economic power. The economic model that made USA big depended heavily on enormous amounts of cheap energy. Current high oil-prices mean the end of this economic model, so unless USA invent themselves with a totally new model (which I find highly unlikely) , I fear that USA as a world-leading superpower has reached the beginning of its end.

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
