I’ve been selling kitchen appliances for over 15 years. I have been constantly amazed at the frequency of new product introductions. The kitchen today is much different than the kitchen of 15 years ago. If it has been a few years since the purchase of your last appliance, you should stop by A-1 Appliance and see the amazing, innovative products from the kitchen appliance industry. I’m very optimistic about the future of manufacturing in the United States….because I see the products made in the USA….many of them right here in Tennessee….every day!
So today’s word is INNOVATION! I found some great thoughts on the subject by President Obama. Here is what he said:
“The first step in winning the future is encouraging American innovation. None of us can predict with certainty what the next big industry will be or where the new jobs will come from. Thirty years ago, we couldn’t know that something called the Internet would lead to an economic revolution. What we can do — what America does better than anyone else — is spark the creativity and imagination of our people. ”
–PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, JANUARY 25, 2011
America’s economic growth and competitiveness depend on its people’s capacity to innovate. We can create the jobs and industries of the future by doing what America does best – investing in the creativity and imagination of our people. To win the future, the U.S. must out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.
President Obama’s Strategy for American Innovation seeks to harness the ingenuity of the American people to ensure economic growth that is rapid, broad-based, and sustained. This economic growth will bring greater income, higher quality jobs, and improved quality of life to all Americans.
