Powering Prosperity: Introducing America’s Advanced Industries
Innovation and STEM-worker (science, technology, engineering, and math) intensive “advanced industries” are the prime movers of regional and national economic competitiveness in the United States. Industries like aerospace and auto, oil and gas extraction, or software and health IT stand at the forefront of the most disruptive technological and business dynamics of the moment, and will be central to U.S. prosperity going forward.
To consider the future of these industries, the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program hosted a major CEOs forum highlighting the importance of the nation’s advanced industries and the opportunities and challenges they face. Informed by new research from Brookings, the morning-long dialogue convened advanced industry CEOs as well as elected officials to discuss the increased viability of the U.S. platform for advanced industry investment as well as the extraordinary technology trends now altering the terms of competition.
