The American Manufacturing Lion Is Beginning To Roar Again
September 10, 2013
Hosted by Bob Pritchard
A great sign for the still sluggish US economy - manufacturing is really beginning to pick up, aided by extraordinary technology and a highly skilled and productive workforce. We are still a few years away from manufacturing really hitting its bootstraps, but it is on the way. We also salute a nine-year-old app entrepreneur and talk about the monetization of Instagram. We also talk about Apple's Passbook app and how retailers can use it to their advantage and also how to use social media to increase interaction with customers and how to develop better relationships and deliver a positive customer experiences. We speak with Marie France Lévesque, a prima ballerina who danced with Baryshnikov and Nureyev until a tragic car accident 14 years ago. Now, at 50, she formed the Los Angeles dance company and has a wonderful production in Los Angeles in November. We also have a great interview with INXS legendary saxophonist, guitarist and singer Dirk Pengilly. INXS has sold over 40 million albums.
