The Washington Post and CNN say Alabama Democrat Rep. Artur Davis is a future leader to watch.
The Harvard Law School graduate sits on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees trade, taxes and other vital business issues. And Davis, a guest on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick,” is keen on using trade deals, worker training and other steps to keep manufacturing strong.
“Obviously, we need to make sure that the international rules of trade are fairly enforced and that they just don’t apply to the United States,” he told Mike.
“America’s Business” will also go to “The Land Down Under” to meet the Australian Industry Group in our first look at manufacturing in other countries. And we’ll chat with an executive from an American mining and farm equipment company that does business in Australia.
Coal provides much of the nation’s electricity. A Duke Energy official will talk about technology that reduces coal’s impact on the environment.
This week you’ll meet the person to go to at the U.S. Small Business Administration if you need help clearing regulatory hurdles. And with Black History Month closing, we’ll talk to a University of Houston expert about the many contributions of African American inventors.
In our regular segments, Renee Giachino of American Justice Partnership gives us the latest report on tort reform while commentator Hank Cox recalls the “The Way It Was.” And the National Association of Manufacturers President Gov. John Engler will close out the program with “The Last Word.”
