To Revitalize Economy, US Must Re-Energize and Reindustrialize, Say Futurist

MORRISTOWN, NJ (Expansionary News Service) November20, 2009 If the US economy is to fully recover, the US will have to first rebuild its energy and industrial base. If we fail to do so, America will soon become a second-class power whose citizens will see their standard of living drastically deteriorate.

Or so said Dr. Michael G. Zey, noted futurist/sociologist and author of The Future Factor, Seizing the Future, and Ageless Nation in his speech delivered to that MENSA Society at New Jersey's Woodbridge Hilton. In his hour-long speech Michael Zey described to MENSA members strategies he says the US must pursue to compete with Russia, India, China, Brazil, and other nations.

According to Dr. Zey, we must at least double our industrial output. And we must build an energy development infrastructure, based on our own natural resources as well as advanced nuclear power technology, that will enable us to not only meet our own energy needs but also to become a net energy exporter. The revenues from such exports would boost our GDP and reduce the now trillion-dollar deficit.

Zey stated that we must radically upgrade the nation's educational institutions, and embrace a host of technologies and treatments to help Americans lead very long lives as "young, vibrant," and productive citizens. He even predicted that countries will try to gain an economic and military competitive edge over their global rivals by using human enhancement technologies to develop smarter, stronger "ultrahumans."

He said that America's industrial rebirth will be in part sparked by the revival of home manufacturing. "Technologies such as 3D printing and eventually nanotechnology," Dr. Zey told the audience, "Will soon enable your family to produce at home furniture and kitchenware by simply entering commands on a computer." Space exploration and colonization will also be an integral part of our economic renaissance. "Countries are now eyeing the Moon, Mars and asteroids as potential sources of minerals as well as Helium-3 that can help power future nuclear fusion reactors," he stated.

According to Dr. Michael G. Zey, the Obama administration has become overly dependent on financial strategies like the stimulus package and TARP to revive the economy. He also said that the President is leading the country toward an "economic dead-end" by favoring energy sources such as wind and biomass over nuclear. In media appearances Dr. Zey has declared that the proposed health care bill will actually prevent many Americans from enjoying the fruits of the Superlongevity and human enhancement revolutions.
