Make It In America This conference, produced by the Asian Heritage Society and hosted by U.S. Congressman Scott Peters and co-hosted by San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts, focuses on why San Diego County is the most innovative hub for business in the nation and why the USA is where the future works and not where it is stuck. As our students prepare for their future, so should we. And that means taking back our economy. Globalization and its result – outsourcing – need to be challenged by a reinvigorated model of Freedom and Opportunity that made this country great. Nov. 19, 2014 is the first – and most important – step in that challenge.
We are faced with unprecedented problems in the wake of rapidly developing global and technological change: Unrelenting typhoons in the Philippines, life-threatening pollution in China, collapsing economy in Thailand, serious infrastructure impediments in Vietnam, lack of access to clean water, energy ineffici cy, debilitating public health issues and inadequate food supplies in many parts of Asia.
Th s conference matches entrepreneurs in those countries affected who are ready collaborate with like-minder social entrepreneurs in America who have matching technologies to effectively introduce ways to tackle recurring problems and improve the lives in those countries affected.
A secondary goal of this conference is to demonstrate why the United States of America is still the best place in which to do business because of 1. Freedom to experiment; 2. Wealth of technologies; 3. A political and economic system conducive to innovation; 4. Willingness to experiment and fail; 5.Highly educated labor force; 6. Supportive higher education system; 7. Abundance of research sectors
American society, with its freewheeling spirit, its diversity of opinions and talents, its flex ble economy, its work ethic and penchant for innovation, atmosphere of entrepreneurship and commitment to the future is the most ideally suited environment to thrive in the tremendously challenging world of technological and global change.
Only America has the knowhow to harness talent to foster and jump start ideas, movements, careers, products, jobs and industries with the rapid fi e of a speeding bullet because of these basic foundations:
1. System of public education
2. Continual improvement of infrastructure (roads, bridges, fiberoptics, bandwidth, wireless networks)
3. Strong immigration
4. Support of research and development
5. Regulations and law that guide private economic activity and protect opportunity against intellectual theft,
fi ancial collapse and environmental destruction

Renoo’s Ranch – Globalization also means recognizing the increased health threats that come with it. AIDS has killed twice as many people as the influenza pandemic of 1919.
