Make It in America [Andrew Liveris] [Book] [2011] [ENGLISH] [Hardcover] [John Wiley & Sons Inc]

  • "America used to define itself by the things it built. We designed and produced the world's most important innovations, and in doing so, created a vibrant manufacturing sector that built the middle class. We manufactured our way to the top and became theundisputed economic leader among all nations. But over the last several decades, and especially in the last ten years, the sector that was America's great pride has eroded, costing millions of jobs and putting our long-term prosperity at risk. Now, as westruggle to recover from the worst recession in generations, our only chance to turn things around is to revive the American manufacturing sector--and to revolutionize it. In MAKE IT IN AMERICA: The Case for Reinventing the Economy, Andrew Liveris -- Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company--offers a thoughtful and passionate argument that America's future economic growth and prosperity depends on the strength of its manufacturing sector. The book Explains how a manufacturing sector creates economic value at a scale unmatched by any other, and how central the sector is to creating jobs both inside and outside the factory. Explores how other nations are building their manufacturing sectors to stay competitive in the global economy, and describes how America has failed to keep up. Provides an aggressive, practical and comprehensive agenda that will put the U.S. back on track to lead the world. It's time to stop accepting as inevitable the shuttering of factories and staggering job losses that have come to define manufacturing. It's time to acknowledge the cost of inaction. There is no better company to make the case for reviving U.S. manufacturing than the Michigan-based The Dow Chemical Company, one of the world's largest manufacturers and one of its most global corporations. And there's no better book to show why it needs to be done and how to do it than MAKE IT IN AMERICA. Andrew Liveris is Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company, one of the largest multinational corporations in theworld and a leader in science and technology"--
