Manufacturing and quality of life

Posted by Bert Maes on June 18, 2009


A poll among 1,000 Americans conducted in May by Deloitte concludes:

81% of poll respondents said America’s manufacturing base is important to our standard of living. And they rated manufacturing more important to a strong national economy than technology, energy and other industries.”

But:

only 30% of Americans say they’d encourage their children to pursue careers in manufacturing”…

Strange disconnection, isn’t it?

And yet the economic revival will come from “making real things” in preparation for urgently needed environmental- and energy-friendly technologies.
