About the lecture: The U.S. has been through three waves of de-industrialization since the 1970s. Manufacturing sectors — ranging from cars to machine tools, semiconductors to electronics, and pharmaceuticals and personal protective equipment — have weakened in comparison to our economic competitors. The deficits in U.S. capacity manifested itself during the first year of COVID on the medical front. Other U.S. shortfalls should be the subject of deep national concern with respect to our aerospace and defense sectors, which provide much of the country’s military systems and critical infrastructure. Dr. Jeb Nadaner will discuss the U.S. industrial base, its relative decline, and where it’s going. About the speaker: Dr. Jeffrey (Jeb) Nadaner is the Executive Director of SAFE’s Commanding Heights initiative, which is focused on advancing and defending U.S. and allied critical supply chains. He also served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Industrial Policy, the Director of the USMC Krulak Center of Innovation, and Vice President of Engineering and Technology at Lockheed Martin.
