The issue with self-driving trucks and cars is not technology; it is the government. Self-driving cars are able to be developed, but is the world ready for it?
This market is definitely not winner takes all. All car and truck manufacturers will compete in this industry, and it will be exciting to see who comes out first and is able to sustain the lead.
Speaking with Trump is a step in the right direction to bring make manufacturing domestic again. Government policies will have to change for this Target’s manufacturing to come to the U.S. As technology continues to develop, labor will slowly be replaced with machines and robots, which will reduce labor costs and bring manufacturing back to the U.S.
As the climate continues to change, the cacao trees will have to adapt too. New cacao trees can be planted in an environment suitable for growth. However, there are other substitutes for cacao that provide a very similar taste, and these opportunities will continue to increase with the development of technology.
One way to help the negative impacts of globalization is for the governments to step in and relieve some of the tax constraints associated with manufacturing as well as the transportation constraints and costs associated with moving manufactured parts across the U.S.
Secondly, as technology continues to develop, less human interaction will be needed to manufacture these parts. The labor costs will decrease with the use of machines and robots. This will slowly bring the manufacturing processes back into the U.S.
My argument here would be that with global warming, the population of bees and avocadoes will move to previously cooler locations to maintain a similar climate. Chipotle and other restaurants might have to shift the region of their suppliers, which could affect their supply chain transportation costs.
I actually remember when this event occurred and had close friends working with Delta at the time. This cyber attack caused chaos on for customers and employees, and these events will continue to be an issue. Every company has to continuously improve their security and require corporate partners to do the same.
