Podcast: Deindustrialization – Opportunity or Threat?

In this episode, Brian examines the phenomenon of deindustrialization and discusses its implications on global economies. Brian provides an overview of the concept and its impacts, including increased energy prices, disrupted global supply chains, and the need for European producers to adapt their cost structures quickly. He then dives into how these factors have impacted Germany, one of the largest economies in the world. We also discuss the potential for reshoring manufacturing jobs to the United States, with a focus on the Midwest region.
