The Promise of American Industry: An Alternative Assessment of Problems and Prospects


Losman and Liang provide a framework for an alternative analysis of American industry and present the supporting economic data. Focusing primarily on the manufacturing sector, the authors examine the effects of such influences as increased foreign competition, technology advances, and the changing position of the United States in the world economy on American industry. They reveal that although the once unchallenged preeminence of the United States economy and its industrial capabilities is clearly a thing of the past, American industry still exhibits major strengths and that positive changes are taking place.
