The Industrialists

This concluding chapter discusses the National Association of Manufacturers' (NAM) relevance in contemporary times. It shows that NAM is still a going concern. It has survived and adapted to new circumstances, and it has a purported membership of 14,000. It also keeps a lower profile. NAM is no longer the go-to “voice of business,” but it still partners up with the US Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable. In other ways, however, the current NAM resembles its old historic self, despite the drastically different economic and political climate of the twenty-first century. It continues to promote development, offering seminars, data, and other resources to help new manufacturers navigate the new economy. But NAM also has to contend with new challenges in the twenty-first century, as it walks a fine line with regard to President Donald Trump.

Keywords:   NAM, National Association of Manufacturers, Donald Trump, immigration, economic globalization, US manufacturing, capitalism
