Globally Connected

Imagine living in a world where significant economic activity creates a variety of jobs and starts new businesses and industries in more places. This opens up new ways to buy and sell products. Machines produce parts in minutes – not days – and those parts get to where they need to go faster. Small trucks and drones frequent your neighborhood to pick up and drop off packages, and larger trucks, trains and planes use less fuel but carry more goods longer distances. High-speed communication allows companies and individuals to collaborate more closely, share space, receive cutting edge training and make on-demand services commonplace.
