Business models in a bad economy
This is a CBS story, so it plugs a few government programs. But I really like the pluke of the pickle lady who started her company after being laid off and is now exporting to China. That is also happening with a furniture manufacturing company.
It is really too bad they did not come to South Texas where the Eagle Ford oil boom is creating thousands of new jobs as well as leading to a boom in manufacturing because of the shale gas revolution. The fact is that the jobs are there if the government will get out of the way, but Obama is still be biggest impediment to energy jobs. His and other Democrats' carbon phobia blocks progress in traditional energy while investing our money in inefficient alternative energy projects that are failing.
