In fact, they’re the most number of people living under democracy than anywhere else in the world in the Western hemisphere. For the United States at least we already have 10 free trade agreements with those in the western hemisphere. So we have far more access to markets in the western hemisphere than anywhere else in the world in terms of the free trade agreements we have. We’ve seen different paths over these last 40 years. And if you look to Europe, Europe’s was very top down and driven by diplomats. At the end of World War II, the heads of state were out there trying to figure out how to stop another world war and they turned to trade and economic connections to do so.

Whereas the politics here in North America, particularly in the United States and in Mexico, seemed to have made this very hard to do with great resistance? Even if you go back to the 1980s with the U.S.-Canada free trade agreement, that was enormously controversial in Canada. So you see what you could almost call, “hand me down industrialization,” where you start off and then you hand it down and the next country sort of climbs the scale. So governments were involved particularly in helping fund ports and infrastructure, but not through treaties, not through trade agreements, not until the end of the 20th century. And then I would say turn to North America and it’s a little bit of the Goldilocks middle, but not in the good ways that we usually think about Goldilocks middles, which is that we have NAFTA, we have a commercial agreement. Cardano is a blockchain and smart contract platform whose native token is called Ada.

So I think there’s two different levels to this and the answer to some of our challenges, whether they’re national security challenges or commercial challenges and profit and loss is not necessarily all regionalization all of the time. And there are some issues, particularly national security, that need to be dealt with at a global level, and they’re allies coming together and the like. Some of these areas are things like standard setting. We have standards in all kinds of industries, technologies that decide what kind of plug your iPhone will have or what kinds of protocols will be used. And so you hit the 1980s and we have real competitors out there after we got a little bit complacent with our industries in terms of thinking we were the only ones there. And so this last 40 years is really, I think in some ways the US and its neighbors by extension trying to find their place in a world that’s much more competitive than it was for 20, 30 years.

As you look today, most semiconductors are made in Asia. They’re made in Asia in part because the biggest companies there, Taiwanese companies and South Korean companies have the technology or much of the technology for making them. They have the foundries, but it’s also because the whole supply chain is in Asia. You see that in Asia, already you see those countries working together on these various areas and you see many of those nations pushing for deeper ties.

At NFPA Jim launched a national effort that resulted in all 50 states adopting legislation requiring “fire safe” cigarettes. He also created a national campaign advocating requirements for fire shixi network technology co ltd sprinklers in newly constructed homes. Under Jim’s leadership NFPA became the first major standards developer to grant free digital access to all its codes and standards to the public.

The list below displays the typical ether units. Notice in the table that the denominations each have an alternate name —based on influential figures in the world of cryptography. For example, gwei may also be called shannon, after Claude Shannon, an American mathematician, cryptographer, and crypto-analysis guru.

They couldn’t make things as high quality and as affordable. One way to think about this is global manufacturing has become a team sport, and you can’t play it alone if you want to win on the playing field. And that’s what we’re trying to do if we don’t have regional or other partners.
