Get Out The Message – Manufacturing Matters
By David Boulay September 2nd, 2010
Increasing attention is being given to the importance of manufacturing in our economy. Some recent reports and articles are below. While each one gives its own perspective, the message is the same– Manufacturing Matters:
Manufacturing: The Misunderstood Industry by the Southern Growth Policy Board.
Framework for Revitalizing American Manufacturing from the White House.
Manufacturing resurgence; A Must for US Prosperity by Popkin and Kobe.
Creative destruction in the Manufacturing Business Technology journal.
September 27 – October 1 is North Carolina’s opportunity to highlight manufacturing’s importance to the economy with the Manufacturing Makes It Real tour. Get involved in one of the eleven events across the state. Donate a manufactured item made in North Carolina to show how important manufacturing is to the state.
Most importantly, help get the message out – Manufacturing Makes It Real and is vital to our economic success.
