Praise for Make It In America: The Case for Re-Inventing the Economy

"Andrew presents a realistic and informed view of America's manufacturing problems and what needs to be done about them." —Warren E. Buffett

"A well-written and timely book that deserves wide circulation. Everyone concerned with America's economic difficulties should read it." —The Washington Examiner

"Mr. Liveris here raises an interesting argument and calls for new thinking."—THE Washington Times

"This book serves as a clarion call for rebuilding the United States' manufacturing base."—New York Journal of Books

"Calls for a national strategy to revive manufacturing . . . doesn't shy away from proposing ideas that have defeated countless other reformers." —The Wall Street Journal

"Perhaps because Liveris is Australian by birth, his economic patriotism comes across asgenuine and heartfelt." —The Washington Post

"Liveris delivers a clear and compelling case for maintaining a robust manufacturing sector in the global marketplace of the twenty-first century. Every American who is concerned about the current or future state of our economy should read this book. For those who believe, asI do, that a strong manufacturing base is vital to creating jobs, innovation, and prosperity, this is a book to read and recommend to everyone you know."—Bill Ford, Executive Chairman, Ford Motor Company

"The perspective of a chief executive who is really makingvital decisions about the location of manufacturing plantsand research centers is well worth hearing . . . full of stimulating ideas and remarkably well written." —The Financial Times
