What Happens When Mass. Innovates, But China Manufactures?


What Happens When Mass. Innovates, But China Manufactures? Is China displacing U.S. jobs? “No question about it,” says Scott Paul, the executive director of trade lobby the Alliance for American Manufacturers. “A lot the job losses have come from innovative states like Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas and California, where they do all the innovating, but China does all the manufacturing for them. The problem with that model is that manufacturing and production is where the middle class jobs are. China has had a huge impact on the U.S. economy.” [Forbes.com]
