Stewart shows that U.S. Manufacturing is NOT Dead
, but says that to
rejuvenate it America should look into Industrial Policy. Meanwhile, in Detroit, a President is saying that the automobile industry bailout prompted an "industrial revival", a Senator is calling it "industrial policy" and an economist is saying even if it is, "it's the most successful...in American history"
. All of which prompts the age-old question....Dude, Where's My Industrial Policy?
Some say it has always been there!
Some say it is in the closet (and should really come out already, for its sake and ours).
Some say it is in cigar-smoke filled backrooms, surrounded by politicians, bureaucrats, politically savvy financiers and a "small clique of clean-tech industrialists".
And some wonder who picks the winners and losers, and how?
