GREAT article. It's so rare to see any article in the mainstream media actually praising American companies FOR BEING AMERICAN. It doesn't do like others do, and make every opportunity it can to downplay the contributions of Americans and overly stress those of others.

I still say our engineers are the best in the world. No one has proven otherwise.

I tend to share your opinion of US technical reputation/expertise.
My engineering degree was obtained at a US university--thanks to your Government's helping to pay for it, and I'm eternally grateful for an excellent education.(Military service-Wayne State)
In my opinion, US educational system has some truly great, best in the world institutions---it also has some not so great ones.
Nevertheless, US accomplishments in the engineering field (and many others) are outstanding.
But other countries have some bragging rights too, and I often feel that the US doesn't do itself any favors by constantly putting itself above all others.
If the US was a little more sensitive to others in the world, it would go a long way toward having less animosity pointed at it from outside its borders.
The US deserves a ton of credit for it's remarkable accomplishments in this world, but when it consistently places itself in the forefront of everybody else, outsiders tend to develop a negative attitude.
And that's one of the major issues facing the US just now.

Agreed. Look at all our products from all areas of manufacturing. From Apple, Motorola, Bose, Sikorsky, Boeing, GM, Ford, GE, Honeywell, ect.

Yes, it is good---but not if it's constantly thrown in the face of every other country on earth.
The US deserves credit for its accomplishments, but the US's high handed attitude toward the rest of the world hasn't helped its image.
I say again........"The US deserves a ton of credit for it's remarkable accomplishments in this world, but when it consistently places itself in the forefront of everybody else, outsiders tend to develop a negative attitude.

Just waiting for the perfect opportunity to reply:

"Your Fed.,State, and Municipal politicians--and more than a few Wall Steet Fraudsters---have let your country down---big time.
How about pointing some of your creative criticism a little closer to home?

You've got far more serious issues than Toyota's troubles right in your own front yard!"

What was it you said? You were a volunteer to the USMC to qualify for this generous school stipend from our corrupt American country. For you, we paid. Dual citizenship? You are opportunistic, just like Toyota. I can't say it anymore plain. You have your own military, but yet you went through the hoops to "get the best education in the world" on the US taxpayers dime, but yet still complain. Glad to see at least you've made the most of your hop on the USMC coat tails for the welfare wagon. I'd say the US has treated you real good, even better than some of it's own.

Nobody is throwing it in the face of anybody. It simply says that technology has put Detroit back on top.

Question – Do you really have to drain the happy out of everything?

@ JJFADS

I agree completely. My assumption is that in 50 years, Detroit will be what it was 50 years ago. A town full of entrepreneurs and skilled workman, investing in technology and living in a high income capita. Only time will tell

My name is Rodney Traylor and I am a product developer from Austin,Texas who has developed a new product for the automotive industry, which will provide safety for children, the elderly, the handicapped and even pets, who are accidentally left in a hot vehicle. My goal behind developing this product is to help save the lives of those who may fall victim to vehicular heatstroke and to add to the convenience and comfort of automobile ownership.This product has been published in a few newspapers and covered on the local news here in Austin, Tx. I am trying to get more media coverage on this much needed and life saving product. To see more on this product please visit links below. Thank You!
