At a time when U.S. manufacturing jobs are disappearing and the United States is losing both its competitive standing and industrial base, it's important to find both positive discussion and clear-cut goals to help restore U.S. industry. 'Manufacturing a Better Future for America' provides both-- an insightful discussion of the state of 21st Century U.S. manufacturing and the need to strengthen the manufacturing sector to meet new challenges. --Harley Shaiken, Director, Center for Latin American Studies and noted expert on global economic integration
Getting trade policy right will be an important battle for 21st Century America. We've seen the ongoing erosion of our manufacturing base and the millions of good-paying jobs that have been lost. We can't continue down this path. I'm gratified to see 'Manufacturing a Better Future for America' tackle these weighty issues head-on, and I congratulate the authors on their good work. --Richard Dick Gephardt, Former Majority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives
The authors of Manufacturing a Better Future for America thoroughly explode the myth all too prevalent in Washington these days that there can be an economic recovery of any consequence without a strategy for revitalizing American manufacturing. --Nicholas von Hoffman
