From top to bottom


Before I began my research for my upcoming book, Simply American, Putting Our Extended American Family Back to Work, I knew very little about manufacturing.  Two years later I know a bit, but am always on the look out for articles that add to my knowledge of the challenges that U.S. manufacturers face.  I came across one last year, but forgot about it until a few days ago.  But I thought you might like to read about it.  The intrepid Sarah Mazzone of Made in the USA Challenge invited Nick Ventura of Youth Movement, a firm making apparel in LA, to discuss the vertical manufacturing process Youth movement Youth Movement utilizes to make their products.  I hope you find the article interesting.  But if you are not interested in learning about the vertical manufacturing process, you can look at these cute pictures of American animals.

Ok, I admit it.  The baby tapir is South American.  But still very cute.
