We should be investing in renewable energy resources. This could generate thousands of new jobs, creating economic growth decrease consumption on foreign energy thereby reducing trade deficits .
We should also consider desalinization plants to supplement our water supply. The move to electric vehicles will also be an integral part of this process.
I would also propose a zero dollar trade deficit policy. When items such as vehicles are imported the country origin would have to import an equal dollar value of US products and services. This would require energy rich countries to spend our dollars here. This would also curtail the ability to divert those same dollars to efforts which are detrimental to US interest.
