"Challenges and Opportunities in Manufacturing" (LGO conference panel)

Panel discussion at MIT LGO conference on "The Future of Manufacturing in the U.S." (May 8, 2012)

Moderator: Daron Acemoglu (MIT)
Panelists: James Breen (Johnson & Johnson), David Hardt (MIT), Narendra Mulani (Accenture), William Ruh (General Electric)
 
This panel led off the LGO conference with a view of the overall context for manufacturing in the U.S. and trends that will shape it over the coming years. What are American structural conditions that may support or hinder manufacturing located in the U. S.—and is a federal "manufacturing policy" needed to revitalize the sector? Panelists discuss policy issues including taxation, environmental regulation, education at all levels, and infrastructure planning.
 
The group also discusses broad industry and economic trends that impact manufacturing, such as supply chain complexity and disruptions, offshoring/onshoring, regional manufacturing strategies, energy pricing, trade regulations, currency interventions, and the rise of emerging market economies.
