Congress should create a United States Economic Competitiveness Commission.

One step Congress could take to bolster U.S. traded sector competitiveness would be to create a 13-member United States Economic Competitiveness Commission, which would release a report every other year providing an independent assessment of the competitiveness of the U.S. economy (particularly its traded sectors, including but not limited to manufacturing) in the global marketplace. The report would offer targeted recommendations to improve U.S. competitiveness across key economic sectors. Senate and House Republican and Democrat leaders would each appoint three members and the Administration one member.
