I’ve spent the past few weeks reporting on American manufacturing – the good, the bad, and the ugly—for my “Made in America” series on CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange.” I’ve looked at “Made in USA” from all angles: how does it help the economy and job growth? How does it hurt the economy and innovation? What can the government be doing to support US businesses?
I’ve talked to CEOs from iconic American institutions like Subway and WD-40. I’ve also talked to people in Washington, from the Small Business Association to the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Economists, academics, and best-selling authors have offered me their two-cents, too.
