National Association of Manufacturers Executive Vice President Jay Timmons was on the road for two weeks, covering the Democratic National Convention in Denver and this week’s Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St.Paul.
Timmons, a guest on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” radio program, says Republican presidential pick Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) emerged from the Republican National Convention with a “strong vision” for the American economy.
“He was a passionate advocate of opening new markets – international markets – to U.S. goods,” Timmons says. “And he was very articulate also on the importance of exporting freedom and democracy to help lift the economic situation, not just here in America, but around the world as well.”

High oil prices have prompted Americans to take a closer look at alternative fuel such as solar. On that note “America’s Business” will visit with Big Belly Solar Chief Executive Jim Poss. Big Belly Solar probably makes the ultimate “green” product – a solar powered trash compactor.
In our regular segments, Renee Giachino of American Justice Partnership gives us the latest on tort reform and commentator Hank Cox recalls “The Way It Was.” And our program will close with “The Last Word” from the National Association of Manufacturers President Gov. John Engler.
