This Week on America’s Business Radio

By November 7, 2008America's Business, General

Americas-Business-logo.jpgThe 2008 presidential election is over, and Democratic Sen. Barack Obama is the victor.

National Association of Manufacturers President John Engler will appear on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” radio program to discuss how American manufacturers will react to change in the White House and Congress after Election Day.

“The National Association of Manufacturers has reached out to President-elect Obama and to his new administration and said, look, manufacturing is the lifeblood of this economy, we still represent 1.6 trillion dollars of economic impact on an annual basis; we want to work with you,” Engler says. “We’ve got a lot of problems ahead as we look to the future. We’re in a recession; globally, the economy of countries all over the world are slowing down. So we need help. And we need to be thinking long term about what’s going to make a difference to allow the U.S. to remain the greatest manufacturing economy in the world.”

NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons will also offer a run-down on the winners and losers on Election Day and what the results mean to manufacturers. And respected pollsters John McLaughlin and Allan Rivlin will return to the program to check if their earlier Election Day predictions proved true.

This week’s program is not just about elections. Mike will visit Peerless Chain Company President Tom Wynn. Wynn will talk about why chains are such an important product and how his company is doing in these shaky economic times.

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 the National Association of Manufacturers President Gov. John Engler will close the program with “The Last Word.”
