Experts argue that the economy has not experienced a significant rebound as in the past because low skilled manufacturing jobs have predominantly gone to low wage countries. This phenomenon, coupled with the delayed housing recovery and the continuing advance of technology and process efficiency at home, play an important part in explaining the lag in recovery of jobs in the U.S. economy. Our experts discuss the prospects for low skilled workers and what the U.S. must do to remain competitive.
