Reshoring Does Not Mean ‘Buy America’ Only

September 15—Defense News

U.S. government officials have called for the “reshoring” of domestic industrial capacity in several areas in recent weeks. Executive Director of the Center for Government Contracting Jerry McGinn believes that the solution is not an autarkic “Buy America”-only approach that would be counterproductive to our long-term economic health. Instead, we need to have a laser focus on getting out of the China business with respect to industrial capabilities critical to national security and, in many cases, doing that with a little help from our friends.
