Andy Grove recently wrote an interesting piece about exactly what anyone answering this call is likely to accomplish:

The first task is to rebuild our industrial commons. We should develop a system of financial incentives: Levy an extra tax on the product of offshored labor. (If the result is a trade war, treat it like other wars -- fight to win.)


It was 1932; thousands of jobless veterans were demonstrating outside the White House. Soldiers with fixed bayonets and live ammunition moved in on them, and herded them away from the White House. In America! Unemployment is corrosive. If what I’m suggesting sounds protectionist, so be it.

-- Andy Grove

Some of the plutocrats are finally getting it. That is, if the hollowing out of the American economy continues, eventually, their asses will be at risk too.
