A New Production Economy
America must not return to the easy path of debt-fueled consumption. It is time, instead, to rebuild our country’s productive might. This will require more domestic investment, more innovation, smart investments in infrastructure and more competitive companies and workers. This is why PPI pays special attention to new sources of jobs and growth arising from the telecommunications boom and the “data-driven economy.” At the same time, we must rebuild the competitiveness of more traditional sectors, including manufacturing. We need balanced economic growth to sustain broad, middle-class opportunity.
