Why—and Which—Manufacturing Matters: Innovation and Production in the United States

February 22, 2012

On February 22, Rob Atkinson will moderate Why—and Which—Manufacturing Matters: Innovation and Production in the United States. The forum hosted by the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings will be exploring the type of manufacturing the nation is most likely to retain and build, as well as a policy framework for strengthening high-wage, export-intensive production in America. Brookings and CONNECT Innovation Institute scholars will present new arguments from complementary research studies assessing production activities and innovation.
