January/February 2010: Made in the USA
The trading system America sold the world is killing U.S. industry. Here's a better way.
Since 2001, the U.S. has lost 42,400 factories --
and its technical edge.
Business and government may waver, but the American
people want more manufacturing.
Beijing's mercantilism challenges America's market ideology and industrial future.
In the 1970s, Wall Street and its economists defeated manufacturing.
If we don't develop a national industrial policy for
clean-energy production, the strategies of other nations will displace American companies and jobs.
If the economy is going to come back, we need
to buy -- and make -- American.
