Ron Bloom was recently appointed to serve as the Obama administration's senior counselor for Manufacturing Policy. Do you think he has the experience necessary to solve the problems faced by U.S. manufacturing?

Yes: 4.762%
No: 95.238%

What advice would you give Bloom as he begins his new post as manufacturing czar?

”Work in manufacturing - understand manufacturing and the cost drivers - then you may start to have something valuable to add. Otherwise you will be viewed as a union mouthpiece.”

“Associate with knowledgeable people!”

“Stay out of the private sector’s business and let capitalism work on its own.”
