Over the past year or so my partner Marilou and I have been blogging about the potential for manufacturing to come back stateside.  We have enumerated several reasons for why this may already be occurring.  The rationale includes the fact that the United States has a stable government, we are a democracy,  and we continue to attract people from all over the world, (as well as our own homegrown superstars) who want to be productive and innovate.  Those innovations include exciting developments in the areas of robotics, artificial intelligence, as well as in the field of medicine and science.

In a research piece from a week ago, Ed Yardeni reflects on a BCA research piece that dovetails nicely with what he, and we, have been writing about as it pertains to fresh investment opportunities in multiple sectors right here in America.

Industrial Revolution. I started writing about the High Tech Revolution in the early 1990s. More recently, I’ve been arguing that it is evolving into a New Industrial Revolution as innovations produced by the IT industry revolutionize lots of other ones including manufacturing, energy, transportation, health care, and education. Our friends at BCA have dubbed it the “BRAIN Revolution,” led by innovations in biotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology. That’s clever, and it makes sense.

This is a trend worth watching as it promises to provide myriad opportunities for innovators and investors alike.
