Just as inevitably, the retreat from predominance proved painful.
By the mid-1980s Americans had found themselves at a loss over their fading industrial competitiveness.
Some huge American industries, such as consumer electronics, had shrunk or vanished in the face of foreign competition.
By 1987 there was only one American television maker left, Zenith. (Now there is none: Zenith was bought by South Korea's LG Electronics in July.)

The flap over rap is not making life any easier for him. Levin has consistently defended the company's rap music on the grounds of expression.
In 1992, when Time Warner was under fire for releasing Ice-T's violent rap song Cop Killer, Levin described rap as lawful expression of street culture, which deserves an outlet.
"The test of any democratic society," he wrote in a Wall Street Journal column, "lies not in how well it can control expression but in whether it gives freedom of thought and expression the widest possible latitude, however disputable or irritating the results may sometimes be. We won't retreat in the face of any threats."

Where to turn for expert information and how to determine which expert advice to accept are questions facing many people today.

The creative approach begins with the proposition that nothing is as it appears.
Innovators will not accept that there is only one way to do anything.
Faced with getting from A to B, the average person will automatically set out on the best-known and apparently simplest route.
The innovator will search for alternate courses, which may prove easier in the long run and are bound to be more interesting and challenging even if they lead to dead ends.
