Summary
America used to define itself by the things it built. We designed and produced the world's most important innovations, and created a vibrant manufacturing sector that built the middle class and made us the undisputed economic leader among all nations. But over recent decades, that sector has eroded, costing millions of jobs and putting our long-term prosperity at risk. Now, as we struggle to recover from the worst recession in generations, our only chance to turn things around is to revive the American manufacturing sector--and to revolutionize it. Andrew Liveris, CEO of The Dow Chemical Company, argues that America's future economic growth and prosperity depends on its manufacturing sector. The book explains how a manufacturing sector creates economic value at a scale unmatched by any other, and how central the sector is to creating jobs both inside and outside the factory; explores how other nations are building their manufacturing sectors to stay competitive in the global economy, and describes how America has failed to keep up; provides an aggressive, practical agenda that will put the U.S. back on track to lead the world.--From publisher description
