In order to write my book, Simply American and this blog, I have done a bit of research on all things related to American manufacturing. There are some very interesting studies and reports out there relating to the importance of the manufacturing sector in this country and challenges we face in maintaining and growing that sector. If you have time, perhaps between watching football games over the holiday period between Christmas and New Years, I would recommend reading a few of my recommendations. You will come away with a much greater understanding of the challenges facing our manufacturing sector.
