“We have to decide that manufacturing is important to us,” says Scott Smith of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Episode 6 of Made in the USA. In this episode, called “The Way Forward,” hosts Brent Donaldson and Peter Zelinski speak to experts across the manufacturing industry to gauge what it will take for the U.S. to regain its leading role in manufacturing — and point to early signs that it may already be on its way.
