Our View: Is N.C. serious about luring manufacturing? - Fayetteville Observer: Editorials

This state's leaders insist that they want projects like these, which bring billions of dollars in capital investment and thousands of good-paying jobs. But they're not willing to pay the price - which in the case of Volvo was more than $200 million in state and local incentives, including $120 million in state-issued economic-development bonds.

The Future of U.S. Manufacturing Is Optimistic: Exclusive Interview with Pete Selleck, Michelin North America Chairman and President - Gray Construction
75 percent of the industries that existed in the U.S. three decades ago still exist today, and they are going strong.
