A very brief follow up to last week’s post on American manufacturing. One of the articles discussed in that post is the cover story from the current issue of the Atlantic. The author of the article is part of NPR’s Planet Money team and they have devoted their weekly podcast to the article. Like the Atlantic article itself, it is very much worth checking:http://pd.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3/npr/blog/2012/01/20120110_blog_pmoney.mp3?dl=1
While listening to the podcast, take a gander at this graphic on the evolution of American manufacturing from the Wall Street Journal (The Factory Floor Has a Ceiling on Job Creation, Jan 12).
