By June 28, 2010Economy, Taxation

John Engler, President of the National Association of Manufacturers, summarizes the NAM’s new policy guide and call to action, “A Manufacturing Strategy for Jobs and American Competitiveness.”

The goals are threefold:

  • The United States will be the best country in the world to headquarter a company. We want companies to be based in the United States.
  • The United States will be the best country in the world to innovate, performing the bulk of a company’s global research and development.
  • The United States will be a great place to manufacture, both to meet the needs of the American market and serve as an export platform for the world.

Engler: “We said this isn’t going to get done immediately in this Congress. They’re about ready to wrap-up. But we want everyone who’s running for Congress who’s going to sit in January start to look now and be committed to some things. Let’s give us some certainty.”
