Understanding that we are dealing with an evolutionary rather than static economy has significant implications for the conceptualization of both economics and economic policy. This book provides an overview of evolutionary economic thought, explains the three dominant drivers of U. The results focus on four empirical investigations pointing to the growing strength of US manufacturing, and, in many cases, refuting or updating previous claims. The 4 Signs of Strength: manufacturing output growth, U.
Manufacturing competitive performance relative to other sectors of the U. Manufacturing productivity growth relative to other countries, and new evidence of outward expansion by U. MNCS and economic activity by those same firms at home. This report provides an overview of the renewed expansion in manufacturing, examining output, international trade, and the labor market.
The steady growth across all three of these areas might have seemed like wishful thinking just a few years ago when manufacturing was hit especially hard. Since the last recession, however, manufacturing output and exports have surpassed their pre-recession levels, and employment has begun to grow again for the first time since Nonetheless, while the manufacturing expansion is robust, it has not been even across manufacturing industries and the states. Manufacturing Entrepreneurship and Innovation, demonstrates how new game-changing technologies are reducing the cost, increasing the speed, and making it easier for entrepreneurs and manufacturers to translate new ideas into products Made in America.
These new technologies are already having an impact, with the growth rate in manufacturing entrepreneurship at its fastest pace in over 20 years. Part one of the paper makes the case for an innovation-centered national manufacturing policy. It lays out key challenges facing the U. Part two of the paper articulates five key principles that should govern the design of the NNMI. The Manufacturing Workforce Development Playbook offers strategies and programs that have been successfully employed by industry, education and government to collaboratively solve the challenges of preparing workers for 21st century careers in manufacturing.
Edited by manufacturing workforce authority Keith Campbell, with contributions from over 20 experts, this resource brings together relevant data, case studies and expert insights about educating and training operators, technicians and technologists for America's manufacturing renaissance.

Exports have contributed more to the growth of gross domestic product GDP in this recovery than in the previous recovery; have helped support millions of high-paying jobs in the U. Moving forward, exports will continue to make important contributions to the U.
Global competitiveness and innovation : an agent-centred perspective
Each section of this report forecasts research and development levels for , closely examining the expected funding for a region or industry. There are many important projections and key findings for each country and industry under discussion. A number of factors have come together to heighten the importance of rail transit to the U. These same factors present new opportunities for domestic manufacturers of rail cars and equipment to benefit, however, historical and structural barriers to seizing these opportunities exist.
This paper explores each of these areas in detail and makes recommendations to policy makers on how they might best support a strong and growing domestic supply chain for the rail transit industry. The Clarion Call, A Look Back and a Path Forward provides a federal policy "report card" of actions and lack of actions since the Council issued a clear and concise agenda to policymakers last year, which included a road map to grow the American economy and included core principles and recommendations critical for the United States' long term economic growth and job creation.
The United States has been the world's largest recipient of foreign direct investment FDI since Every day, foreign companies establish new operations in the United States or provide additional capital to established businesses. With the world's largest consumer market, skilled and productive workers, a highly innovative environment, appropriate legal protections, a predictable regulatory environment, and a growing energy sector, the United States offers an attractive investment climate for firms across the globe.
Respondents are engineers and purchasing agents, business owners and managers, and sales and marketing executives from manufacturers, distributors and service companies. These companies are growing, expecting future growth, hiring, and increasing their production capacity to meet additional demand. This report discusses barriers, opportunities, and solutions to designing energy efficiency programs that result in significant savings from smaller manufacturers. This report focuses on both the economic and policy analysis associated with advanced manufacturing. The following key conclusions emerge regarding state policy and advanced manufacturing: States play a central role in promoting economic development and industrialization; This is a new era of industrial development for the SGA states; State policy in support of the advanced manufacturing sector must be carefully coordinated with other public and private entities that seek to promote economic development in order to maximize returns for state residents and the business community; A strategy for fostering the growth of advanced manufacturing should be based on carefully developed strategic plans that build on SWOT assessments of state assets and needs and include quantifiable goals and objectives.
To listen to many economists, pundits and policymakers discuss the economics of growth it would be easy to be confused by the commonly used terms: competitiveness, innovation and productivity. These terms are often used almost interchangeably and with little precise meaning. To remedy the situation, this policy memo defines these terms and explains how each is important in driving economic prosperity.
Over the last decade, the United States lost about one-third of its manufacturing jobs, raising concerns about U.
There may be insights to glean from government policies of similarly-situated countries, which are facing some of the same challenges of increased competition in manufacturing from developing countries. At the request of the chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, the Government Accountability Office GAO identified innovative foreign programs that support manufacturing that may help inform U.
This report offers observations and recommendations on how to increase small and mid-size manufacturers SMMs SMMs' contribution to manufacturing exports; and answers questions related to: the importance of exporting to SMMs with the greatest export growth potential, types of assistance exporters need, the importance of innovation and supply chain for growing exports, and export assistance in a a limited funding environment. The report is in support of a major joint research efforts undertaken by MEP and the U.
Commercial Service. Overall, the report uses 26 indicators, divided into five key areas that best capture what is new about the New Economy: 1. Knowledge jobs; 2. Globalization; 3. Economic dynamism; 4. The digital economy; 5. Innovation capacity. The Edition of the Facts of Manufacturing is a collection of the key facts and figures that define the state of the U. The report provides 65 figures that show the importance of the manufacturing sector and challenges that our industry faces. Tina Dacin Queen's University business. Simon J.

Entrepreneurship theory and practice 34 4 , , Entrepreneurship theory and practice 30 6 , , Academy of management journal 53 6 , , Tracey February 27, The key arguments and debates about globalization have raised searching questions about the significance of national and regional borders for the competitive strategies of individuals, firms and industries.
Global Competitiveness and Innovation seeks to address these issues by exploring four key topics: The status of economic agents in the emerging global economy; the limits of path dependence and the scope of agent action; the relationship between agents' decision-making and their environments; and agents' learning capacities in a world of information and knowledge creation.

Axel Dreher. During the last few decades, human dynamics, institutional change, political relations, and the natural environment have become successively more intertwined.
Depending on the researcher or commentator, it can mean, among other things, the growing integration of markets and nation-states, receding geographical constraints on social and cultural arrangements, the increased dissemination of ideas and technologies, the threat to national sovereignty by trans-national actors; or the transformation of the economic, political and cultural foundations of societies. Regardless of perspective, globalisation permeates our economic, political, and social institutions to a profound degree.
Undertaking a comprehensive review of the literature on globalisation and using data from the MGI and KOF indices, the authors build a framework for defining globalisation and analyzing the relationships among economic, political, and social variables. In particular, they apply the methodology to analyze the effects of globalisation on tax policy, government spending, economic growth, inequality, union power, and the natural environment and consider additional avenues for research, analysis, and decision making.
In the process, they hope that by introducing objective measures to enhance our insight into the functioning of the complex global system.
