    The ideas that conservative think tanks hand out today are the same, exact ideas they handed out to Hoover. He did what they proposed and created the depression.

    Yeah !
    A reduction in the standard of living for the masses.
    Lets hear it for reducing the standard and quality of living for the masses, while the rich become richer.....
    Strangely, I have thought of the same thing...simply asking big business exactly what is necessary for the American people to do in order to bring back manufacturing....
    Seriously, it past time for big business and government heads to work together.

    Manufacturing is here. Real wages have been rising. What's the problem? Why do we need protectionism? Higher prices for consumer goods! More poverty in 3rd world nations! Great idea!

    Well, the idea would have worked here:

    Loss Of Solar Jobs Has Mass. Rethinking State Aid : NPR

    The state provided every benefit they could muster, the company took all of it and grew, then shuffled out to China leaving about 100 employees without a job.

    This is a perfect example of why I think we need something like what I stated in the OP.

    really? i see this as a perfect example of how state attempts to pick winners and losers in energy are doomed to failure. (incidentally, Spain's unemployment rate is now up over 20%) with the idea stated in the OP in force, all that would be different here is that the company would have started in China.

    Yeah, so long as the state continues on its present course things will be doomed to failure. So, whats your solution?

    save the state (both on the federal and state level) billions by forcing energy companies to actually compete. if they are unable to provide a better product for a lower price for the American people, let them die; they don't deserve to be able to force all Americans to prop them up via subsidies just because their business plan sucks.
