Industrial Tech: Secret Sector Driving Daily Life

Date TBA

While the past 30 years have storied a decline in US manufacturing, an entire sector has been overlooked: industrial tech or ‘The Titanium Economy.’ Unveiling this sector, McKinsey Managing Partner Asutosh Padhi can read from his book THE TITANIUM ECONOMY: How Industrial Technology Can Create a Better, Faster, Stronger America.

The Titanium Economy is thriving in America’s heartland, offering high-quality jobs with good pay, producing strong fiscal returns, and innovating everyday life. With investments–from factory workers to Wall St.–it can remediate the income inequality of late and restore the US economy’s backbone via new opportunities for those left behind.

Otherwise, this promising sector's potential to bolster the U.S. economy will go unrealized, just as we need it most.
