A pleasure to be joined by Sarah Webster, the Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Manufacturing Media. While Sarah and I agree that American manufacturing is coming back, we also agree that we will never fully regain our dominance until we dominate the manufacture of the tools and technologies needed to manufacture things…
1. We discuss the state of our manufacturing infrastructure.
2. Can the US really recapture leadership in manufacturing? How did we lose it? How do we get it back?
3. What are the manufacturing technologies that are game-changing?
4. We discuss the impact of the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act, passed by Congress in 2014.
5. The long-term effect of all of this with regards to labor and jobs. And how STEM and innovation will play a growing role.
