How truthful will President Biden’s Executive Order to buy products made by American workers “to ensure future of America is made in America?”
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Presidents green energy push pits jobs against lower costs reported this statement by the source who is to supply off shore wind power in USA:
“Oh God, don’t cause any problems.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb, an idiom, about truth of politician’s empty suit promises made before elections vs. what actually happens after elections because of lack of understanding manufacturing by politicians.
Clouds and wind and no rain, a man who boasts about a non-existent gift. (Proverb 25:14)
Idiom – Easier said than done
It is easy to say that one can or will do something, but is much more difficult to actually do it.
What’s My Point?
President Biden campaign promise and “Executive Order to support manufacturers, businesses, and workers to ensure that our future is made in all of America by all of America’s workers.”
If we read the article, we find his green energy promise is heavily dependent on solar panels and wind to provide energy instead of fossil fuels.
However, solar panel suppliers for the most part import solar panels form China. And wind power equipment from Europe. All American suppliers do is assemble and installation.
When the New York legislator contacted the suppliers of offshore wind turbines she found out that manufacturing parts in America is more easily said than done. That is because, Joe Bidens and previous President Obama and those before him allowed USA manufacturers to outsource the machinery technology and workers skills out of the USA.
Add that most politicians have never had any experience in manufacturing and the time frames required to obtain necessary machinery, technology, and workers skills to produce the widgets for their grand plans in no easy task as it is to make promises. Same as King Solomon observed 3000 years ago when he described clouds and wind that pass over but do not produce rains.
In My Opinion,
If Congress listened and understood the concepts of balanced trade as proposed and warned in 2003 by Warren Buffet, the USA would be more self-reliant. Right now, the USA cannot manufacture the critical components needed by the Military.
My guess is the Biden administrators will concede and continue to buy solar panels and wind turbines from overseas sources and say we must do to prevent global warming.
In other words, the economies of overseas sources will benefit from all the trillions being proposed by the Biden Administration. USA manufacturing and workers is just a political empty suit promise.
Wise or foolish opinion or truth about USA politicians promises and lack of understanding manufacturing.
