Study: U.S. Manufacturing Will Achieve Cost Parity with China by 2015

Which came first, the chicken or the “hodgepodge of disjointed and often contradictory efforts”. Manufacturing started to die in this country 10 years after WW II when Japan and Germany were rebuilt enough to start producing high quality products. The full effects of their ability to compete in the manufacturing arena were not felt until the Toyota introduced it's cars to the US and US buyers were taken by it’s quality, fuel savings and low price. This put the US car companies in a bind. They were good at making big cars and trucks but they had nothing to offer to compete in the small car market. From there the history is clear that whatever the US government did accomplished nothing but hamstring US manufacturing forcing them to turn outsourcing to compete.
Get the US government out of business as much as possible and the manufacturing sector will repair itself. If not, there is NOTHING we can do until our wages and costs meet the rest of the world’s wages and costs.
