Why you should read Make It In America
Andrew N. Liveris is chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company, vice chairman of the Business Council and a member of the Business Roundtable’s executive committee. Yet, unlike most of his peers, he advocates for more government intervention in the marketplace, not less. Liveris urges manufacturing executives and public policy makers to plan, develop and implement a comprehensive, government-led national program to revive American manufacturing. While typical corporations more often petition for lower corporate taxes (and then, inconsistently, sometimes seek government help), this corporate leader proposes a business-government partnership. getAbstract recommends Liveris’s call to action to manufacturing executives, government leaders and anyone with a stake in the long-term health of the US economy.
