If you are presently thinking about making a permanent move to the USA through the EB5 visa, but have some concerns about your timing, in connection with the performance of the US economy, a recent report from Wells Fargo will be of interest to you.

The report, backed up by a lot of impressive evidence, indicates strong future prospects for the USA and considers five particularly important areas, profitability, innovation, resources, stability and people to draw a very positive conclusion.


Following the financial crisis and recession which hit a peak in 2008 and 2009, the after tax profits of the largest corporations in the USA achieved a third consecutive year for record earnings in 2012. This turnaround is illustrated by the fact that whilst corporate profits fell to a low of 4.8% of GDP during the recession they have later recovered to 11% of GDP in 2012. This turn round has seen American corporations returning substantial amounts of cash to their shareholders through dividend payments, indeed more than 80% of companies in the S&P 500 Index made dividend payments in 2012 representing a 13 year high.

This turn around in performance may well be of interest to you as a potential EB5 visa applicant particularly if you are looking to run businesses and or invest in US companies.

Innovation is viewed by many economists as one of the most important factors in terms of business competitiveness and long-term economic growth. America continues to lead the world in terms of innovation. A 2012 study carried out by Thompson Reuters indicated that 47% of the top 100 global innovators were from the USA.

The US continues to lead the world in many research areas, including health care related industries which have seen better medical outcomes for patients across a whole spectrum of treatment areas.

The US is the leading country in research and development in eight out of ten technology areas including:-
·Agriculture and food production
·Aerospace, rail and non-auto transportation
·Military aerospace, defense and security
·Composite, nanotech and other advanced materials
·Energy generation and efficiency
·Healthcare, medical, life science and biotech.
·Information and communications|
·Instruments and non ICT electronics

The US continues to be the birthplace of so many innovations proving some excellent opportunities for EB5 visa projects and excellent educational opportunities for your children.

The US economy is benefiting from a number of new technologies which are re-vitalizing the US energy industry. Experts conclude that USA will decrease its dependence on a number of imported energy sources.

Expanded use of fracking technology has seen a rise in US oil production for the first time since the mid 1980’s. This improvement is combined with ever increasing energy efficiency in vehicles, home heating and cooling and manufacturing plants, to levels not seen since 1996.

In the US natural gas supplies are actually exceeding demand and the International Energy Agency has forecast that by 2015 the USA will overtake Russia to become the world’s leading natural gas producer.

The USA agricultural sector continues to produce strong surpluses as well as producing renewable energy through biologically based products. Research from Bloomsburg has indicated that corn acreage planted to the US is at record highs, which in turn leads to record ethanol production.

Within the USA housing is an important arbitrator of the health of the economy, with a strong housing market helping to contribute towards creating jobs and increasing personal wealth and boosting spending. Recent housing statistics show that the real estate market is showing a sustainable recovery assisted by historically low mortgage rates and rising property prices.

In recent years US banks have strengthened their balance sheets by updating their business models raising new capital and writing of long term debts. These steps have strengthened the domestic banking system.
