Rebuild Manufacturing - the key to American Prosperity"
on June 12, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Ms. Michele Nash-Hoff, founder and president of ElectroFab Sales
Michele will briefly discuss how we "saved" U.S. manufacturing and what we need to do now to rebuild American manufacturing. The U. S. trade deficit has been in the red since 1975, and there is no historical record of any other country in history running 42 years of consecutive trade deficits. Why is this important? Because every billion dollars of net imports costs 4,500 American jobs according to conservative estimates, and the annual trade deficit reduces our U. S. GDP by some 3% to 5.5% each year. We lost nearly 6 million manufacturing jobs from 2000 - 2010, and have regained less than 700,000.
We need to eliminate the trade deficit to re-industrialize our country, enable massive job creation, grow our wealth and effectively neutralize foreign mercantilism. Michele will discuss how we can eliminate the trade deficit and rebuild American manufacturing by
Developing a national manufacturing strategy
Renegotiating existing trade agreements like NAFTA with the goal of balanced trade
Enforcing provisions of current agreements
Addressing currency manipulation and the overvaluation of the dollar
Reinstating Country of Original Labeling
Implementing tax reform with border adjustable taxes and Sales Factor Tax apportionment
