Especially the automotive industry is trying to innovate with new electric vehicles concepts, urban transportation, and autonomous driving, but all those topics are currently just trends and not scalable because there is just no ecosystem to drive this change. I am a bit concerned about the future of "German Engineering" and if we will keep our status, although we are not part of this fast and dynamic new market.
To get this out of the way first: I'm not an Americanist, I'm not even that interested in politics and I'm German, so please take my writing with a grain of salt.
Then why bother writing about the result of the possibly biggest election this decade? I'm not sure but through Social Media and global broadcasting I feel somehow part of what goes on and I see a lot of people outraged about the result even though Donald Trump haven't even started his new job.
