Infographic: Making Value for America

This infographic from the National Academy of Engineering summarizes findings from their report, Making Value for America: Embracing the Future of Manufacturing, Technology, and Work.

Globalization, developments in technology, and new business models are transforming the way products and services are conceived, designed, made, and distributed in the U.S. and around the world. These forces present challenges—lower wages and fewer jobs for a growing fraction of middle-class workers—as well as opportunities for “makers” and aspiring entrepreneurs to create entirely new types of businesses and jobs. Making Value for America examines these challenges and opportunities and offers recommendations for collaborative actions between government, industry, and education institutions to help ensure that the U.S. thrives amid global economic changes and remains a leading environment for innovation."
