Intel to invest $7 billion

Intel has made plans to introduce a two year plan that will help to build advanced manufacturing plants in the US with its nanotechnology. The 32-nanometer chips will help to create faster manufacturing facilities that use less energy to keep the US on top of the most innovating country.

Up to 75% of all manufacturing occurs in the US with Intel's computer processors, with 75% of its sales going overseas, where Intel hopes to turn a profit by investing $7 billion dollars in these manufacturing plants. The manufacturing plants are expected to be the building blocks of the technology industry in a quote from the company:

"These manufacturing facilities will produce the most advanced computing technology in the world. The capabilities of our 32nm factories are truly extraordinary, and the chips they produce will become the basic building blocks of the digital world, generating economic returns far beyond our industry."

The potential economic buster could come from the computer industry, starting with Intel producing 32-nanometer processors. With energy concerns on the rise, even recently from Google, consumers and businesses alike are looking for faster, more powerful, cheaper and energy efficient technologies.

Intel would be mad investing this sort of money, at this time. I'm sure this press release is purely headline generating advertising. Relatively few people will be buying computers in the years ahead, currently most firms are just trying to survive! The faster processor wars are over (for the time being) the world is in deep diddley, and will never be the same again. The stimulus package will put the US (and the world) in more trouble. "Night Night Vienna!"

A wise Manufacturer invest in upgrades during the low times so he can reap during the high times. All recessions come to an end.

Someone doesn't understand how a company runs then... You never stop investing in yourself with the hopes that at the end of the tunnel you will come out bigger then the rest... projects don't just get boxed up in a time like this, you need things to help the economy recover, and that includes new projects which give jobs which cause spending which cause a trickle up effect

Good, They should be making things in america.... If we weren't pumping billions and billions (or more?) overseas, and instead investing it in our own country's workforce, our economy would not be so bleak.
