Bringing Manufacturing Back to the United States

By August 18, 2009Economy, Trade

How one U.S. manufacturing company is bringing jobs back to the United States, with Harry Kazazian, Exxel Outdoors CEO and CNBC’s Erin Burnett. Seems the Alabama manufacturing plant is more efficent than the Chinese ones.

Harry’s back on CNBC at about 2:20 p.m. Eastern to talk about the prepostorously named Employee Free Choice Act.

UPDATE (1:55 p.m.): The follow-up segment about manufacturing is also worth watching, although the speaker from the Center for American Progress filibusters until he can get in a plug for protectionism. But his point about taking the longer-term view is valid. The guest from Cato reminds us the American manufacturing succeeds through productivity.

UPDATE (Wednesday): The segment on labor did NOT include discussion of EFCA. Still valuable enough. And, hey, Tasini. Stop interrupting!
