Making Value For America

A Classic Infographic for National Academy of Engineering


Globalization, developments in technology, and new business models are transforming the way products and services are conceived, designed, made, and distributed in the U.S. and around the world. These forces present challenges—lower wages and fewer jobs for a growing fraction of middle-class workers—as well as opportunities for “makers” and aspiring entrepreneurs to create entirely new types of businesses and jobs. In this infographic we made with the National Academy of Engineering, we worked on summarizing findings from their report, Making Value for America: Embracing the Future of Manufacturing, Technology, and Work.
