McKinsey & Company Presents: Can We Still Make It in America?

The promise of a better life now rings hollow to millions who find that hard work offers them no guarantee of making it in America. Here, the McKinsey Global Institute unveils research that traces what’s happened to the manufacturing sector and to incomes in recent decades. Additional surveys cast a fresh spotlight on what business executives and the broader population believe about whether the United States can still manufacture and compete. This panel explores how to forge new pathways to prosperity.

Festival: 2017
