15. End of Cheap, domestic Oil - and manufacturing superiority
Those are both gone - things of the past. And we better start learning to deal with it.

When gas was 50 cents a gallon (in the 1960's) we could build inefficient cars, buy them and waste gas. We cannot do this any longer.

And unskilled labor is now competing globally - with the Mexicans, the Chinese, the Indians, anywhere etc... that is why there aren't the good paying manufacturing jobs any longer
