Manufacturing Matters: Production Offshoring Is Hurting U.S. Innovation Capacity

December 16, 2019

In the show’s 25th episode, Sridhar Kota and Tom Mahoney, both of MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight, join host Cliff Waldman to discuss their recent Wall Street Journal Op-ed, in which they argue that production offshoring by US manufacturers is depleting the US of critical innovation capacity. Sridhar and Tom respond to questions about the global context for their arguments, specifically relating to the need for US manufacturers to establish a foreign presence to sell into new and emerging markets, the value of a foreign multinational presence in the US, and complex multi-country supply chains. The interview concludes with a discussion of the authors’ policy recommendations for slowing the outflow of innovation from US shores.
