I don’t pretend to be an “economic guru” by any means… honestly it all makes my head hurt a bit.
I did, however, thoroughly enjoy reading Bill Waddell’s thoughts on the state of manufacturing in America – and really the West in general.
Bill, for those that don’t know, may have forgotten more about manufacturing than many of us will ever know. He also writes over at Evolving Excellence and is, um, passionate. Yeah, passionate is a good word.
I’ll also warn you ahead of time, Bill is an opinionated fellow… but seems to have a tremendous amount of wisdom that I, for one, have personally learned from.
If you’d like to download and read Bill’s rant, I mean thoughts, visit his website and download the Word document titled “The Hollow American Economy.”
After you read – or at least skim the paper – I’d be interested in your thoughts. Specifically, do you agree with Bill? Or do you think he may be missing the mark?
