Proposed policies, based on an industry survey and economic analysis, can eliminate the goods trade deficit and increase manufacturing to 14% of GDP and manufacturing employment by five million. We can have both dramatic productivity growth and increased manufacturing employment as we bring much of the lost manufacturing back. The challenge is to select, pass and implement the optimal policies. Good manufacturing policy decisions will only be made if the misconceptions about manufacturing are corrected.
Hear from Harry Moser, a 50-year manufacturing industry veteran and retired President of GF AgieCharmilles. Mr. Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative to move lost jobs back to the U.S. For his efforts with the Reshoring Initiative, he was named to Industry Week magazine’s Manufacturing Hall of Fame in 2010. Harry won The Economist debate on outsourcing and offshoring and received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014. He received a BS in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Engineering at MIT in 1967 and an MBA from U. of Chicago in 1981.
