I'd like to see the us government invite these tech companies from Japan or China to open a "us hub" that's employs us citizens to produce the same products that are made there. they could be exempt from tariffs or other import taxes. that would bring the same tech economy from say Shenzhen to the United states, once we learn how to produce electronics at the same level then we would be able to compete on the world stage. no matter how many jobs were lost to the 4th industrial revolution we would have 100 jobs to replace every job lost.
