Federal government releases new advanced manufacturing strategy - SSTI
In honor of National Manufacturing day last week, the Trump administration released the Strategy for American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing. Developed in partnership with the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) and the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the report is intended to outline the administration’s vision for American leadership in advanced manufacturing across industrial sectors. It advocates pursuing three goals: develop and transition new manufacturing technologies; educate, train, and connect the manufacturing workforce; and, expand the capabilities of the domestic manufacturing supply chain.

PDF: Small Business Development Impact Investing White Paper - CDFA
One of the largest challenges faced by small businesses has always been and continues to be access to capital in order to operate, grow and create jobs. While the nation is recovering from the recession, the availability of capital for small businesses has generally not recovered. This is due to the sluggishness of the economic recovery and the decline in the number and activity of community banks (a major source of small business expansion capital). The FDIC estimates that 53% of small businesses get their loans from community banks, yet the number of such banks declined by 28% between 2000 and 2014.

Does Your State Tax Manufacturing Machinery? - Tax Foundation
Taxing inputs in a sales tax leads to “tax pyramiding.” Throughout the production cycle, the tax can be assessed multiple times. This leads to higher prices for consumers, fewer job opportunities for workers, or limits the business’s ability to expand. If too many business inputs are taxed, a state’s sales tax could actually start to function as a gross receipts tax.

This week’s map looks at just one of the many business inputs that states tax in their sales tax bases: manufacturing machinery.

Connecting Public Transit to Great Manufacturing Jobs
By alternately pressuring and working with transportation authorities in Los Angeles, New York, and other cities, Jobs to Move America has gotten foreign manufacturers to create more than 2,500 direct factory jobs in the United States—and several thousand more indirect jobs. Jobs to Move America played a pivotal role in getting Chinese rail and bus companies to build factories in California, Illinois, and Massachusetts. It has also gotten a Japanese company to build a light-rail factory in California, and a French company to add 500 jobs in upstate New York.

Publicly Funded National Labs Important to U.S. Innovation - AAF
Arguments for cutting the Lab’s innovation budget often ignore the role the Labs play in matters of national security (particularly with relation to nuclear weapons). Further, the energy innovation mission of the Labs is intended to leverage the national security expertise and technology the Labs possess to create technology that can be delivered to the private sector.

Why Des Moines and Iowa business leaders support NAFTA - Des Moines Register
Iowa exports more to our two NAFTA partners – Canada and Mexico – than to the next 23 countries combined. Iowa stands to lose a great deal if the North American Free Trade Agreement is dismantled, rather than updated and improved.

Federal Tax Reform & the States: Conformity & Revenue - Tax Foundation
The law modernizes the U.S. tax code by shifting from a worldwide to a territorial tax regime, which is in line with most developed nations. Under a worldwide system, all income, no matter where earned, is subject to domestic taxation, but with credits for taxes paid to other countries. Under a territorial system, a company is only taxed on domestic economic activity.

More evidence that technology and increased worker productivity, not trade, were behind US factory job losses - AEI
This paper challenges two widely held views: first that trade performance has been the primary reason for the declining share of manufacturing employment in the United States and other industrial economies, and second that recent productivity growth in manufacturing has actually been quite rapid but is not accurately measured.

U.S. Census Report Highlights Small Manufacturers Big Role in the U.S. Economy. - NAM
But there is another face to U.S. manufacturing. Small employer manufacturers (those with fewer than 50 employees) shine in many sectors. For example, 92 percent of the cement and concrete product manufacturing establishments in the U.S. have fewer than 50 employees. These small establishments employ 89,058 people, or over half of all employees in this industry.
