Brookings Institution: The Federal Role in Supporting Urban Manufacturing
A third of all U.S. manufacturers are located in the 10 largest cities, the Brookings Institution says. Here's how the federal government can work more effectively with these small urban manufacturers (SUMs).
But the federal government has overlooked SUMs and their importance to urban economies, Brookings says, and instead relies on outdated information on manufacturing. Some federal policies may have even inadvertently undermined programs intended to spur other local economic development.
The report looks at ways the federal government can work with state and city leaders to support urban manufacturing. It includes case studies of manufacturing in Los Angeles, Cleveland, Seattle, and New York City.
