The book initiates a provocative discussion on how comparative advantage can be treated and lost, including: Appraisal of the U.S. industrial base, which was the principle force behind prosperity in the 1900s but was overshadowed by internet-related companies and other parts of the economy. Critical analysis of how manufacturing has survived despite many pressure from abroad and within. Explanation of why a strong manufacturing sector remains essential to the long-term survival of the nations economy. Made more comprehensible through graphics, tables, and maps, Manufacturing Works tells the stories of the workers, managers, community leaders, and others.
