Heartland Monitor VII: Return to Prosperity, December 2010: “The seventh installment of the Heartland Monitor Poll reveals an American public that is still deeply concerned about the direction of the country, their personal economic situation and future opportunities for their children. Globally, there are concerns about how the US compares to other countries in terms of pro-growth policies and cooperation between business and government. The American manufacturing sector is seen as a fundamental aspect of the economy yet is threatened by continued outsourcing of jobs to countries with lower wage workers. Despite this, as mentioned in the National Journal feature article, Americans remain optimistic about the ability of the United States to take the steps necessary to grow the manufacturing sector and remain the world leader in that industry.”
