7. Without repealing many, many laws? No.
It's simply not possible. Even if our government were to pump massive subsidized into our heavy manufacturing sector the way China does, we'd still have more expensive labor and materials and a higher cost of production than any plant in China.

I read your other post about abandoning heavy manufacture to China/India, and I agree with it in part - as things are done now we just can't compete. That doesn't mean that there's not another way to do business or make things. Of course, that will require some innovation on our part.
