US manufacturing isn’t healing as fast as we’d like or as quickly as we deserve. On that, most of us can agree.
But it sure seems like we’re seeing a steady stream of misguided understanding among much of the economic & academic elite. They often seem to miss what a strong manufacturing base really means to us. Or any country, for that matter.
Recently, a young man named Brian Jencunas wrote a piece entitled ‘Trying To Revive American Manufacturing Is A Fool’s Errand.’ It is a perfect example of this lack of awareness of the values of a well-managed, inclusive industrial base.
It – and articles like it – make me wanna throw a baby turtle in a blender.
