No Small Matter
As traditional manufacturing in America limps along, many wonder what will help keep the industry, and the nation, competitive in the 21st century.
One answer: nanotechnology.
Most agree that the U.S. will increasingly lose ground to lower-wage countries in what has typically been the more transient sectors of manufacturing, such as apparel - simple, low-skill manufacturing. Likewise, many contend the U.S. will maintain its leadership position the leader in high-tech, highly skilled manufacturing - and at the forefront of that is likely to be nano.
