Manufacturing is the key to improving the economy and creating more wealth for the middle class. Innovation, a trained workforce, and a more business friendly atmosphere are among the factors that could help to create manufactoring jobs.
Those were among the observations made by a panel of experts during an Innovation Forum hosted by the Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce last week. The official topic was "Can the Tri-Valley Change the World." Questions posed to the panel by moderator John Fortt of CNBC included the impact of the national debt, the role of innovation, roadblocks to manufacturing, and steps to improve the economy.
