Q&A: U.S. Should Focus on Fostering the Right Kind of Manufacturing
Re: Gary Pisano & Willy Shih
In a new book, co-authors Gary P. Pisano and Willy C. Shih — professors at Harvard Business School — argue that if the U.S. loses certain portions of its industrial base, it will lose the ability to innovate. But their argument is more nuanced than the manufacturing-means-jobs mantra that has grown loud during this election campaign. Indeed, they argue that not all industries are crucial to save.
