Manufacturing For The Security Of The United States
Manufacturing For The Security Of The United States
By Robert E. McGarrah
Quorum Books, 1990, 200 pp

A professor of management with experience in the Pentagon and other parts of the government, McGarrah puts a good deal of the blame for the decline of American manufacturing on the way business people run their companies and the way the government conducts military procurement. His prescriptions for the return to competitiveness call for broader participation in management, more cooperation with allies in arms production and financing, and a "Marshall Plan revival" that will help the Third World and expand American exports.
