Washington, DC, -  Ronald Bullock, Chairman of the Manufacturing Institute and CEO of Bison Gear, joined NAM President Jay Timmons and others on an Aspen Institute panel discussing a recently released study forecasting what the American economy might look like in 2025 with a manufacturing resurgence. The dialogue was moderated by Stephen Gold of MAPI, a member of the Institute’s board of trustees. The panel comes as a part of the Aspen Institute’s Manufacturing and Society In The 21st Century program.
 
The Manufacturing and Society in the 21st Century program of the Aspen Institute has partnered with the Manufacturers Alliance/MAPI to take a systematic approach at predicting the future of American manufacturing. The paper explores what changes we can expect if manufacturing grows from its current share of 11.5 percent of the U.S. economy, to the 15 percent or more that it enjoyed in 1998. Modeling is done through 2025 and impacts of what the paper labels as a “resurgence” has on jobs, overall GDP, incomes, the trade deficit, investment, and on other sectors of the economy are presented.
