Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on Thursday outlined an ambitious plan -- called the National Export Initiative -- that aims to double U.S. exports to $2 trillion by 2015. And it expects to create 2 million new American jobs. In an exclusive interview with DailyFinance Thursday morning, Locke stressed that "the key to our economic prosperity is to export more. While there are rosy signs of economic recovery," he says President Obama won't be satisfied "until every American who wants a job can get a job."
