The case for revolutionizing the U.S. economy, from a leading CEO America used to define itself by the things we built. We designed and produced the world's most important innovations, and in doing so, created a vibrant manufacturing sector that established the middle class. We manufactured our way to the top and became the undisputed economic leader of the world. But over the last several decades, and especially in the last ten years, the sector that was America's great pride has eroded, costing us millions of jobs and putting our long-term prosperity at risk. Now, as we struggle to recover from the worst recession in generations, our only chance to turn things around is to revive the American manufacturing sector—and to revolutionize it. In Make It in America: The Case for Reinventing the Economy, Andrew Liveris—Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company—offers a thoughtful and passionate argument that America's future economic growth and prosperity depends on the strength of its manufacturing sector. The book explains how a manufacturing sector creates economic value on a scale unmatched by any other, and how central the sector is to creating jobs both inside and outside the factory Explores how other nations are building their manufacturing sectors to stay competitive in the global economy, and describes how America has failed to keep up Provides an aggressive, practical, and comprehensive agenda that will put the U.S. back on track to lead the world It's time to stop accepting as inevitable the shuttering of factories and staggering job losses that have come to define manufacturing. It's time to acknowledge the cost of inaction. There is no better company to make the case for reviving U.S. manufacturing than The Dow Chemical Company, one of the world's largest manufacturers and most global corporations. And there's no better book to show why it needs to be done and how to do it than Make It in America.

Everyone knows you can't build things in America anymore. Everyone, that is, except John D. Bassett III. While one corporation after another exported their manufacturing to high-volume factories in low-wage locations overseas, Bassett's traditional wood bedroom furniture manufacturing company has not only survived, but thrived, making premium products right here in America. When everyone else was rushing for the exits, Bassett bet on the talent, dedication, and uncompromising quality of American workmanship. And he won. In Making It in America, Bassett tells you the secrets that have made Vaughan-Bassett Furniture so successful doing what everyone said couldn't be done. Drawing on rich life experience, including the everyday challenges running a traditional manufacturing company, Bassett constructs a 12-point plan to achieve successful leadership in any business. These steps include: Have a winning attitude, respect your employees, don't panic, reinvest constantly, and make the best of the worst. Bassett's story is about how those values underpinned his personal success and how they can revitalize America itself. In the face of feckless leadership, crumbling infrastructure, and global competition, Bassett's story is a blueprint for how America can revitalize its role as leader of the free world and how your success can be part of it.

America is the world leader in innovation, but many of the innovative ideas that are hatched in American start-ups, labs, and companies end up going abroad to reach commercial scale. Apple, the superstar of innovation, locates its production in China (yet still reaps most of its profits in the United States). When innovation does not find the capital, skills, and expertise it needs to come to market in the United States, what does it mean for economic growth and job creation? Inspired by the MIT Made in America project of the 1980s, Making in America brings experts from across MIT to focus on a critical problem for the country.MIT scientists, engineers, social scientists, and management experts visited more than 250 firms in the United States, Germany, and China. In companies across America -- from big defense contractors to small machine shops and new technology start-ups -- these experts tried to learn how we can rebuild the industrial landscape to sustain an innovative economy. At each stop, they asked this basic question: "When you have a new idea, how do you get it into the market?" They found gaping holes and missing pieces in the industrial ecosystem. Even in an Internet-connected world, proximity to innovation and users matters for industry. Making in America describes ways to strengthen this connection, including public-private collaborations, new government-initiated manufacturing innovation institutes, and industry/community college projects. If we can learn from these ongoing experiments in linking innovation to production, American manufacturing could have a renaissance.

Immigration has always been part of the fabric of America's history and its future. However, the emphasis on high-skilled workers-today's foreign graduates at US universities with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math-is a fairly new phenomenon. The effects of "reverse brain drain" are becoming increasingly common, as professionals have begun taking knowledge and skills they've learned in America back to their home countries. Policymakers are realizing that foreign students are not only a major pipeline to innovators, but are also the catalysts behind the growth of new ideas and capital. In An Immigrant's Guide to Making It in America, Virgilia Kaur Pruthi reveals why this is the best time in modern US history for young immigrants to begin making their mark by highlighting the stories of a diverse set of those who've made it in America. Filled with practical advice on how to navigate the immigration system and tip for adjusting to US culture and understanding the visa process, the book gives readers the knowledge they need to succeed. An Immigrant's Guide to Making It in America presents a complicated process in an accessible format and is useful for the recently immigrated as it is for those long in the United States, looking for inspiration in the stories of their new peers. "I wrote this book for those looking to understand what it takes to succeed in America," Kaur Pruthi writes. "It is meant to follow you through your time as a student, a job-seeker, a family-starter, and a hopeful candidate for a green card and citizenship. It also tells the stories of immigrants who came to America, each motivated by unique aspirations. I aim to demystify the current immigration terminology while sharing tips on how to succeed in America from those who have been through the process." In chapters that detail the various issues for immigrants and naturalized citizens to understand Kaur Pruthi covers such topic as: The Current State looks at the evolution of immigration in America and takes a look at some of the hard statistics that shape our nation's diversity and education system. The People highlights the stories of more than thirty-five immigrants who hail from more than thirty countries and possess an extremely diverse set of professional backgrounds. They share their most honest advice and their stories are divided into the most common traits immigrants exude, including the bridging the gap between two cultures, getting comfortable with networking and building relationships, being open to the unknown, setting clear goals in life and remaining focused, and being confident of their own willpower and forward-thinking despite any barriers. The Skills lists the necessary skills people should be aware of and utilize in order to grow and succeed in any profession. The Real Answers addresses the most frequently asked questions posed by immigrants when moving, working, and continuing a life in America. The States details the demographics, trends toward immigrants and employment outlook of all fifty states. Resources highlights organizations in America that are doing incredible work for immigrants that individuals coming to this country should feel comfortable in approaching if in need while The Glossary is meant to translate the bureaucratic terminology, from A-Number to Visa Waiver, it's your portable dictionary to immigration. "I would love for my readers to take apart this book by extracting the information that is most important to them at a certain stage in life," Kaur Pruthi writes. "My aim is to make information about immigration and visas more accessible and clear without getting blindsided by politics. I hope that what you learn about the immigration system in this book will help you stay positive, patient, and courageous throughout your journey in the United States."

Abstract: The larger share of immigrants in America today has important implications in American society. How immigrants can achieve their American dream and how they become integrated in American society remains unclear. What is clear is that these immigrants typically live in the lower rung of the socioeconomic ladder, but many come here so their children will have better opportunities and exceed them in socioeconomic status. Children's educational achievement and aspirations are essential for their success. It is for this reason that the determinants of educational aspirations are so important. I use data from the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study (CILS) to determine the relationship between parental language retention and educational aspirations. I include in my analyses three ethnic groups: Cubans, Filipinos, and Mexicans. The initial results reveal that speaking parental language at home increases children's college aspirations. However, this relationship is reversed when both peer and frequency of language use is taken into consideration. This relationship takes yet another turn as it is demonstrated that immigrant children are most likely to have college aspirations if they are able to speak parental language and are proficient in English. In contrast, immigrants who are proficient in English but are poor in parental language have lower level of college aspiration compared to the bilingual children. I discuss these general findings and some anomalies among ethnic groups using the theories of classical and segmented assimilation.

Our sharpest and most original social critic goes "undercover" as an unskilled worker to reveal the dark side of American prosperity. Millions of Americans work full time, year round, for poverty-level wages. In 1998, Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them. She was inspired in part by the rhetoric surrounding welfare reform, which promised that a job -- any job -- can be the ticket to a better life. But how does anyone survive, let alone prosper, on $6 an hour? To find out, Ehrenreich left her home, took the cheapest lodgings she could find, and accepted whatever jobs she was offered. Moving from Florida to Maine to Minnesota, she worked as a waitress, a hotel maid, a cleaning woman, a nursing-home aide, and a Wal-Mart sales clerk. She lived in trailer parks and crumbling residential motels. Very quickly, she discovered that no job is truly "unskilled," that even the lowliest occupations require exhausting mental and muscular effort. She also learned that one job is not enough; you need at least two if you int to live indoors. Nickel and Dimed reveals low-rent America in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity -- a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival. Read it for the smoldering clarity of Ehrenreich's perspective and for a rare view of how "prosperity" looks from the bottom. You will never see anything -- from a motel bathroom to a restaurant meal -- in quite the same way again.
