Re-Shoring Manufacturing for Security

Joe Hackman says that we have an unprecedented opportunity right now to secure our future and that starts with bringing back critical manufacturing. Joe is the Founder of Managed Solutions, which provides smart manufacturing solutions to the advanced manufacturing sector. He joins Carol Roth to talk about re-shoring, the economic impact of manufacturing and to debate the role of free markets vs. government in these endeavors.

Plus, a “Now You Know” segment on beach sand.

    Great podcast! We need to see a lot more about manufacturing on Ricochet. It’s such an important, and broad, topic.

    I firmly believe we are at the beginning of a manufacturing renaissance in this country, and it’s going to be big.

    Automated assembly robots are getting faster and more precise. And robots in China are not significantly less expensive than robots here. 

    Logistics has improved. CAD tools have improved. Machine vision software can now perform automated inspections. And the next step, I think, will be some AI-based tools that link all those together.

    I agree Don! I am really happy that more attention is being drawn to it. You are right also that automation does equalize things a lot. As discussed in the podcast we have the right mindset to lead the way in innovation and also production. As a bonus the products are also safer to use and manufacturers are accountable. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
