We like to do something a little different with our videos on weekends. This one is the first of a series that is designed to orient our readers to our meaning when we talk about the re-industrialization of America. We don't mean heavy industry, the industry of the previous century. We mean the industries of the current century. Watch and you'll see what we mean.

More of that. Less of this.

Nice find Fred. This was my speciality when I did a PhD in molecular bio. There are quite a few companies out there that have mastered the technologies and this will be a great industry in the next decade. Here's another link to a similar video. This company is in Cambridge, England, with a great research team and an excellent product.

As everyone will come to understand in the coming year; at the sub-molecular level it has been discovered that everything comes down to the external energy environment of the proton. The consequence of this new understanding is that there is going to be a need for a huge increase in investment in a much wider range of industries than what one might describe as biological. The second point is that, outside of the individuals involved; hardly anyone understands the science as the text books are being constantly re-written and that in turn creates a wave of new knowledge. For that reason, investors are, in many ways, right back at the beginning of the first industrial revolution, having to make instinctive decisions based on a gut feeling of whether or not something is going to work and make money in the long term. In the past, those decisions were made by individuals right at the heart of the source of funding, the Jobbers and Brokers of the stock exchanges. Principally London at first and then, when a wider understanding of the potential became apparent, Wall Street and the like sprang up world wide.

But today, such decisions are not made at the level of the Jobber or Broker; right at the heart of the framework of funding capital to new industry where, in the past investment decisions for completely new industries were made. Indeed, it can be argued that today, the process is so far away from those arguably primary decision makers, there is little contact between the principal sources of the capital required and anyone that understands the needs of such new industry.

You might say that Venture Capital fills the requirement. I will argue that we only have to look carefully at the disastrous direction investment has been guided over the last several decades to see that cannot be true. In the past, the truly great industrial giants were not born from mergers and acquisitions; they came from long term leadership by very strong individuals backed by equally committed and long term capital. Moreover, capital that understood there is a need to step back and place trust in the originators to complete the process over the long term.

One of the primary reasons the Germans have been so successful, where Anglo Saxon societies have not is their ethos is quite different. We spend so much time examining the entrails of the US or GB and nothing like enough time looking at why other economies are not in crisis in the way we are.

I believe that, if we are to make the best of the new advances in science, we have to break out of the existing mould and go back to basics. The leaders of our financial industries, savings, pensions, must be forced to come out into the open and return to making decisions themselves, rather than being shielded from their national responsibilities to new industry by complex regulations that seem to reduce risk to the saver, but which, instead, have added to the instabilities we all see around us today.

We need new leadership right at the top of the supply chain for capital to industry and we need to recognise that trying to continue to travel along the road that as brought us to this impasse; cannot be seen as an acceptable solution.

Not for the first time, I ask who will step up to the plate and be counted?
