  • NYC x MFG. As in New York, also in Liverpool.
  • Restoring American Competitiveness. Again, not just America, rebuilding our industrial commons is important.

    "In general, government has been effective in its support for innovation when it has acted as a customer seeking a solution to a concrete, compelling need or when it has been a patron of basic or applied research that has the potential for broad application. Conversely, its support of innovation has generally failed when it has not had a user’s stake in the outcome or when it has bet on unproven technical solutions that required extensive knowledge of commercial applications or market realities that it lacked."
