Latest EMT Worldwide Column: U.S. Insourcing—Trend or Empty Campaign Promise?
My latest EMT Worldwide column is out. Looking at all the presidential campaign activity focused on glorifying manufacturing these days–factories make such wonderful backgrounds for speeches, I thought it might be time to focus on what I’m seeing as the real drivers of insourcing/reshoring. It also discusses some of the cost drivers that likely limit a massive resurgence in U.S. manufacturing. Feel free to comment. I suspect anyone who owes their job to a manufacturing company has thoughts on this one.
