President Obama made a vow to double exports in the next five years, and as weary as the American people are of presidential promise, this is one he really needs to keep, for the sake of the economy and American jobs. China has presented a multiplicity of problems for global competitors in the cleantech industry trying to break into the Chinese market and Colorado-based super-energy-efficient air conditioner manufacturer Coolerado, is no exception. China leverages companies, like Coolerado, which are trying desperately to make it in foreign markets, by requiring that manufacturing and part production occur on their shores.
Slate.com has developed a panel to set out and the explore the likelihood of Obama's promise coming true and explains in an article that Congress needs to act to level the playing field for domestic companies like Coolerado.
