Andy Grove ... an American patriot & a true American Made Hero!

Intel‘s CEO or Chairman from 1987 until 2005.

 M.I.T. Technology Review ... September/October, 2011

"In an article he wrote last year in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Andy Grove called himself "a onetime factory guy." It was a reminder that the 74-year-old retired chairman of Intel knows from experience how costly and risky manufacturing can be. Given these challenges, Grove argues, the U.S. government should do far more to nurture manufacturing, or else the country will face dire consequences."

"I think for every example where companies, states, cities, governmental agencies do well on this issue, our government should find ways of drumming it into the consciousness of people who are considering building a plant or who are ready to enter a career which is not manufacturing-based. It is probably best to look at this as a major brand campaign."

Google's Sergey Bren!!

"I fled Hungary as a young man in 1956 to come to the U.S. Growing up in the Soviet bloc, I witnessed first-hand the perils of both government overreach and a stratified population. Most Americans probably aren't aware that there was a time in this country when tanks and cavalry were massed on Pennsylvania Avenue to chase away the unemployed. It was 1932; thousands of jobless veterans were demonstrating outside the White House. Soldiers with fixed bayonets and live ammunition moved in on them, and herded them away from the White House. In America! Unemployment is corrosive.

"If what I'm suggesting sounds protectionist, so be it."

"I left the restaurant unsettled. Something did not add up. Bay Area unemployment is even higher than the 9.7 percent national average. Clearly, the great Silicon Valley innovation machine hasn't been creating many jobs of late—unless you're counting Asia, where American tech companies have been adding jobs like mad for years."

"The underlying problem isn't simply lower Asian costs. It's our own misplaced faith in the power of startups to create U.S. jobs. Americans love the idea of the guys in the garage inventing something that changes the world. New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman recently encapsulated this view in a piece called "Start-Ups, Not Bailouts." His argument: Let tired old companies that do commodity manufacturing die if they have to. If Washington really wants to create jobs, he wrote, it should back startups."

"Friedman is wrong. Startups are a wonderful thing, but they cannot by themselves increase tech employment."!!!    !!!! Does America Need Manufacturing?

"To a large extent our government has not yet realized that the self-interests of our corporations, especially our large global corporations, can diverge from the interests of our country. We need to find ways to fundamentally "change the motivations of corporations to align with those of our country ."
--(Ralph Gomory)

Extremely well credentialed & true American Made Hero.!!!!!!!
Google co-Founder Sergey Brin sees China as a problem.

NEW YORK: Google's pull-out from China was partly motivated by co-founder Sergey Brin's own memories of repression in the Soviet Union, Brin told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. Brin, who emigrated to the US from the Soviet Union at the age of six in 1979, said that China's web censorship and suppression of dissidents reminded him of the "totalitarianism" of his youth.

"I think (Chinese) protectionism is also certainly a concern."

"In the past couple of years, especially since the Olympics, the situation has gotten considerably worse on a variety of fronts. Both in terms of the amount of information being omitted .. furthermore, other sites of ours such as Youtube and Google docs and I could go through the list are blocked ... I guess the initial momentum that we saw hasn't really continued and has made it very hard to operate under those kind of circumstances."

At Faneuil Hall, Boston, manufacturers gathered. We are losing our economic independence as we lose USA based manufacturing!!!

Mr. Andy Grove applauded for "Lifetime Achievement" at
American Made Hero Awards.

We celebrated America's Andy Grove at this 1st "Gathering of Heroes" event!

M.I.T. -- You don't sound confident that the U.S. will recapture manufacturing jobs.
Andy Grove (2011) -- I think all of this is going to happen, but it will happen too late. In World War II, American manufacturing won the war, but even then, it took them two years to get moving, and that was a different world. I don't know any way to break the cycle except to plug away and create enough successes that you begin to raise doubts about the conventional wisdom.!!! Shop American as 1st Option!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."        Alexander Hamilton ... an American Made Hero!
