The economy could actually be saved by newer, better, computing breakthroughs that give America a stronger share compared to Japan and Korea which are
very competitive for now.
But the tech breakthroughs that are even more important are in energy, and biotech. As you said, we have a foreign oil dependency. But if we can make
solar, wind, and other renewable energy tech more efficient and affordable we can use it here and sell it to the world.
As for the people in Washington, I'd hope they see the problem as one with solutions. That is more productive than looking at the deficit/debt and
just dismissing it, saying it's impossible to balance.
