Who Knew the Key to the Economy Was Locks?

We will win the future by moving to a padlock-based economy:

President Obama praised a well-known Milwaukee company during his State of the Union address Tuesday night. The president cited Master Lock for bringing offshore jobs back to the U.S. “A few weeks ago, the CEO of Master Lock told me that it now makes business sense for him to bring jobs back home,” said Mr. Obama. “Today, for the first time in 15 years, Master Lock’s unionized plant in Milwaukee is running at full capacity.”

One of my readers quips, “Of course Master Lock is doing well. The banks and real-estate industry need all those locks to keep people out of their foreclosed homes.”
