Why Americans don’t make televisions anymore
There is no question that the past few decades have brought a decline in American manufacturing. Though the automobile industry may be the most commonly referenced example, some forget that in the past our nation manufactured a variety of products, including consumer electronics. One of the most expensive and most popular American purchases is the television. Television manufacturing is beginning to reemerge in the U.S., but manufacturers are being stifled. Abusive licensing patent pools threaten to slow innovation and economic growth charging consumers for technology they may never use. Detroitnews.com

Revitalizing ‘Made in America’ Manufacturing
Until recently, the United States enjoyed more than 100 years as the world’s largest producer of manufactured goods. By 2011, when China took over the top slot, the phrase “Made in America” referred to a dazzling array of things we proudly assembled and sold, as well as the way 11 million people made their living. Nowadays, the “Made in America” slogan has come to represent more than just factories and assembly lines. The entire U.S. maker community can lay claim to the label as individual innovators and DIYers bring new ideas to life and carve out entirely new niches in the market for consumer goods. psfk.com

How viable is a U.S. high-speed rail system?
Why doesn't the U.S. have its own extensive high-speed passenger rail system? Other countries have long been building out their high-speed trains. Japan's famed bullet train, or Shinkansen, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this month. That rail system was credited in part with helping to revive Japan's post-war economy. And a Japanese rail operator recently tested a new magnetic levitation (maglev) train that can reportedly reach speeds of over 300 miles per hour. CBS News

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe.

Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
