So now the economy of the US has to dance to the perodic mood shifts of the arrogant MBAs at McKinsey and their ilk ? For the snake of sourcin that they peddled for 2 decades and caused such havoc, these white collar CRIMINALS deserve to be flogged in public. And while at it, shut down Harvard and other top B schools too - they are the leading breeding ground for these sociopaths with College degrees ( the MBAs ) who have been busy outdoing even "Gordon Gecko".

It is much more complicated than just "bringing manufacturing back." We need to take a hard look at restructuring society so that we have people do things that they can reasonably do with their skill set and intelligence. Then we can establish tiers of occupations that better suit human temperment and true needs rather than try to rush everyone into the 21st century against their will/desires or capabilities. In many ways, we have allowed progress to race ahead before we are prepared to assimilate the changes. That speed leaves almost everyone lost and confused, hence the difficulties we have in finding a balance. Just my opinion.

Hi Bolaji - not quite sure that Mckinsey would agree with your characterization in the lead-in sentence to your article (see below) that they are a market research firm! Manufacturing, says "market research firm" McKinsey, is essential to a nation or region and its presence or absence can have some significant impact on an economic area. In reality they "bill" themselves as - "McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm. We are the trusted advisor to the world's leading businesses, governments, and institutions." Regards, Mike Cowan

I'm glad you read the 184 pages and I only had to read your summary. I hope the US will see the value in bringing some of the manufacturing back home. Our economy could use the help.
