the white house invited people like ev williams, founder of twitter for a summit of young business leaders. well aside from ivanka trump, whose acquired her fortune the old fashion way, via inheritance, most of the other companies like the aforementioned twitter have neither a business plan nor profit. perhaps it could be a better idea to have a summit consisting of young engineers. and by that, we don’t mean computer engineers. but people who actually make real tangible stuff. because the u.s. needs to rebuild its manufacturing base in order to provide jobs for the many americans (and this number is growing) who can’t afford to pay $80K to attend a 4 year school.
