Harry's notes on the briefing:

For us to succeed, the next president has to understand that strengthening mfg. is feasible and thus worth the effort.

In the face of a very high US$ and low oil prices the continued success of reshoring and FDI show that with the right policies, i.e. without the tilted playing field, our goal is achievable.

U.S. and foreign companies will locate work to the most competitive locations. So it is essential to make the U.S. competitive, at least for sales in the U.S. To be able to decide what to do about mfg. the next president needs to understand:

  • 1st How competitive we are now in key industries
  • 2nd What combination of actions will close the gap
  • ________
