There’s No Resurgence In American Manufacturing. It’s A Myth.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. In a towering act of sycophantry, the National Association of Manufacturers announced Friday that it will be giving Ivanka Trump the organization’s first ever Alexander Hamilton Award for “extraordinary support of manufacturing in America.” The organization made the outrageous claim that “no one”  — no one! — has ever “provided singular leadership and shown an unwavering commitment to modern manufacturing in America” l...

I felt more like an attendee than a moderator and host since I was so interested in wha...

Introducing NEO, TPM’s New Frontpage Publishing Software

And while Josh has written a post giving some initial guidance on the new design, we thought readers might enjoy some insight on the project from the perspective of TPM’s product team. At 6:23 PM on Tuesday night, approximately an hour before we’d planned to launch the new frontpage, a colleague sent me...

Robbers, prowlers, cat burglars — call ‘em what you want, but none of them are welcome in your home.
