The Answer is "Yes!"

The New York Times' headline asked the question, "Does America Need Manufacturing?"  The answer is, "Yes!"

Last week's essay by book author Jon Gertner looked at battery manufacturing in Michigan as an open question about the seemingly tentative moves toward a national industrial or manufacturing policy.

Gertner's conclusion was really an instructive message to Wall Street.  He wrote, "We must aspire to a different business model than the one we have come to admire. . .Or to use a more familiar example, a business that looks less like Google and more like Ford."
