In the forthcoming edition of the Journal of Technology Transfer, ITIF President Rob Atkinson offers a response to an article on revitalizing U.S. manufacturing by Greg Tassey, senior economist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Atkinson praises Tassey for his insights and lays out his own views that inaccurate ways of measuring manufacturing output and stubborn resistance by policy makers to support America’s technology sector could have negative repercussions for future U.S. competitiveness.
