Finally, a CEO explains in plain english why manufacturing jobs are necessary for America's economy and what the government can do to help create them.
And no, it's not the high cost of labor!
The author explains how higher productivity of American workers actually saves companies time and money. It's all the complex and inconsistent regulations that very from state to state that hold companies back. Business leaders have to plan for the long term, so tax credits that only offer temporary relief are just not enough. Other countries use long term incentives to get companies to build their factories there, but the US govement just doesn't get it. I wish all lawmakers would read this and put more effort into creating a system that encourages business leaders from all over the world to build their factories here.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
The title of the should be "Corporate Welfare". To summarize you need to give tax incentives, subsidizes, free land etc. or companies will leave for foreign countries because they bribe the US companies better than the US. So fork over the money US or we will leave and let you rot.
Would you recommend Make It in America to your friends? Why or why not?
If you are liberal you will love this book because he loves to quote Kennedy and mentions FDR several times.
Did Dick Hill do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
He did a great job of reading the book. The only thing missing was an Aussie accent.
Could you see Make It in America being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Shoe this right after Atlas Shrugged.
Any additional comments?
I agree with many items but I get tired of his advertisements for Dow. I totally disagree with his alternative energy point of view. We should be spending money on natural gas infrastructure as opposed to solar and wind. Neither of witch will be the future other than maybe 15% of the total US demand. He just wants Dow to be subsidized for producing solar shingles.
