WHAT IS MANUFACTURING?, AND MORE FROM CRS
"What is Manufacturing?" is not the title of a lost work of Heidegger, but of a new report from the Congressional Research Service. The CRS report delves into the shifting meaning of "manufacturing" and the implications for economic analysis.
"Changes in the structure of manufacturing make it difficult to design government policies that support manufacturing-related value added and employment in the United States. Many federal laws adopted with the goal of supporting manufacturing do not take into account the increasingly blurred lines between manufacturing and other types of economic activity," the report said.
