America's coming manufacturing revolution
The Atlantic
Hardly a day goes by without an article predicting, lamenting or celebrating America's decline. The turmoil in Crimea and Syria, the polarized and frequently gridlocked U.S. political system, the deepening income and wealth inequalities in the United States and the growing clout of rivals like China and Russia are all offered as proof of waning American power. But the doomsayers often fail to see the ways in which America is gaining rather than losing global influence. And nowhere is this truer than the manufacturing sector.

Cost quandary hits Japan's advanced factories
Automotive News
It's a cruel paradox for Japan's manufacturers. Auto suppliers here have some of the world's most automated factories. But because they also serve as global mother plants for low-tech operations overseas, they sometimes have to dumb down lines, making output more costly and labor intensive. That allows the companies to test and prove processes before implementing them abroad.

A study from the Environmental Protection Agency found that 3.8 million tons of diapers entered landfills in a single year.
