“I’ve been watching the American economy for decades, and for the last few years I’ve put it under a magnifying glass. My conclusions are strongly positive: the United States is about to enter a period of prolonged economic growth, filled with opportunity. It’s not the emerging market countries that will power the world into the next economic era. It’s the United States.
There are four forces that explain my optimism:
- America’s astounding levels of creativity
- The renewal of manufacturing
- Vast reserves of energy
- Massive amounts of investible capital.
