On this National Manufacturing Day, policymakers can and should be doing much more to stimulate the growth and competitiveness of America's manufacturing economy, write Stephen Ezell and Adams Nager in The Hill. America's manufacturing sector has been underperforming its potential. But there's no good reason why America can't become an industrial powerhouse again, or why the manufacturing sector can't support another 2 to 3 million more American jobs and increase its contribution to GDP. But to power sustained American industrial renewal, it will take a coordinated set of policies around the "4Ts": technology, tax, trade and talent.
