How the U.S. Can Rebuild Its Capacity to Innovate - HBR
Many U.S. firms have long had a simple mantra: “Invent here, manufacture there.” But, increasingly, those same companies are now choosing to invent as well as manufacture abroad. From automotive to semiconductors to pharma to clean energy, America’s innovation centers have shifted east, offering growing evidence that the U.S. has lost what Harvard Business School’s Willy Shih calls the “industrial commons”: indispensable production skills and capabilities.

When It Comes to Trade Whirlpool Tries To Have Its Cake And Eat It Too - Forbes
Samsung is building a washing machine factory in Newberry County, South Carolina. The plant is nearing completion, 250 workers have already been hired, sometime in 2018 the plant will have 500 workers producing washers and possibly other appliances, and eventually nearly 1000 workers will be employed there. LG is just beginning work on a plant in Clarkesville, Tennessee, so soon both major importers will be manufacturing some of their washing machines in the U.S., creating jobs for several thousand Americans.

If Whirlpool's foreign competitors are already in the process of moving some of their manufacturing footprint to the U.S., why is a trade action needed?

Technology Progresses When Business, Government, and Academia Work Together - HBR
By the mid-1980’s, the American semiconductor industry seemed like it was doomed. Although US firms had pioneered and dominated the technology for two decades, they were now getting pummeled by cheaper Japanese imports. Much like cars and electronics, microchips seemed destined to become another symbol of American decline.

The dire outlook had serious ramifications for both US competitiveness and national security. So in 1986, the American government created SEMATECH, a consortium of government agencies, research institutions and private industry. By the mid 1990’s, the US was once again dominating semiconductors.
