Why was she giving this talk? Simple; we beat the German's in WWII due to our manufacturing abilities. Today, China can easily out produce us, so are we going to make the same mistake as the Germans did in WWII, in a future war with an industrial power that can out produce us? Well, are we? How can you say the answer is yes or no; you can't and that's one more reason manufacturing is so vital to US interests, on top of the importance of jobs, trade flows, and GDP growth. "A nation lives well, when it produces well," she reminds us, and quoted Adam Smith's warning about not relying on military resources to make our defense systems.
So is manufacturing growing in the United States? President Obama hopes so, especially in the high tech sector. But evidence of high tech manufacturing being a growing industry is still yet to be seen. At this point in time, it's still cheaper to employ a human to do a task as opposed to investing in a robot. But what happens when it's cheaper to buy that robot, or ship that job to a plant in China? The future looks bleak once manufacturing robotics become reasonable investments for smaller companies like Standard Motor Products.
